So I recently bought a Sonor SQ2 acryllic set, which still has the factoryheads on it.
I used pinstripes for the toms on all myprevious sets, but now I think they will fuck up the whole see-through-vibe I've got going on.
Any suggestions for clear heads I could use?
I play Hardrock in the style of Whitesnake, Y&T, ... and my tom-sizes are 10, 12, 14 and 16

Thanks in advance,

He said clear heads.

I would go with Aquarian Response 2s or Evans EC2s.

Clear pinstripes should be fine for the toms. You shouldn't be able to see the line from 10 feet away or more. As for the snare, I would use what you normally use, people can't see the top head that well anyway.

Ian was the only one to suggest pinstripes but I agree with all of the Emperor/G2 guys
It seems a shame to waste all of that wide open-ness that a synthetic shell provides by using a head that is known to inhibit such things
However, if you're more interested in the looks of the kit and want to make it sound more like a regular kit then go for the Pinstripes
Not that there's anything wrong with that
You say irritant, I say catalyst
