What Drum Heads are you using? Post what kind.

aka: Emperor (Remo) or EMAD (Evans)

I use Remo Pinstripe (2-ply) on the toms and will be using an Emperor X dot snare head. I currently have an Evans head on my snare.

I actually have a mix of both Remo and Evans right now. On my snare I have a Remo Coated Ambassador on the batter side. On my kick I have an Evans EMAD and on my toms I have Evans clear G2's.

For studio use in jazz I'd go with J1 on tops and G1's on bottoms on all drums. In rock etc I'd go with either clear or coated G2's, Emads on the kick and Power Center on the snare.
For live situations jazzy stuff remains the same, though I love the sound I get from G1/G1 combination on the toms for other situations.

I like Attack because it sounds just as good as Remo, Evans and Aquarian but it's much cheaper at the same time

I currently have Attacks on my 22" kick and it sounds great. Gotta check out these heads for the toms.

I've always used and always will be a Remo lover.My main snare head choices are Coated Emporer or Ebony Pinstripe.On my toms clear emporer or ebony pinstripe.Bass drum is usually clear pinstripe.I've tried a few Evans and they didn't fit my style or my sound.

I use a combo of everything, Coated Ambassador or coated cs white underdot for the snare. Aquarian Regulator or Evans Emad for the bass drum and Evans G1 or G2s coated or clear, just depends on my mood I guess.
I used to love the Aquarian double thin but they dont make them anymore.

I use clear Emperors on the tops of the my toms, clear Ambassadors on the bottoms, coated Ambassador on the snare, Powerstroke 3 on the kick. I know, pretty typical, but I love the sound and haven't had any desire to change it, studio or live.
