What evans head would work for a 26" bass drum? They don't make the EMAD in 26".

Style is Rock/Progressive/Metal

Here is their listing of heads:

So what kinda tension do you EMAD users use for your EMAD and EQ3 reso?? Rigth now I use DW heads for batter and reso, and my kick sounds quite good, but I think it could be better.

I tension the batter DW head at 3/4 or a turn past finger tight, and the DW reso head with 4" hole at 1/2 turn past finger tight.
