I am not sure what type of drum skins I should get.

I want a dampened sound and my fellow drummer recommened Remo Pinstripe skins...

Any opinion on these skins or if better skins are known of for the sound I am looking for.

Here's a topic on Evans EC2 heads- people say it's Evans equivalent for Remo Pinstripes. Also there are Attacks 2 ply medium heads. I personally wouldn't go for pinstripes etc. I guess the best choice is regular Evans G2 or Remo Emperors. They are dampening the sound enough. I think Pinstripes is too much.

I used to really like them and wouldn't use anything else. But my taste has changed, and I have to agree that they dampen the sound too much, and cannot be un-dampened if so desired. I now use Remo Emperors for my batter heads, and I love them.
