I got a 16 x 15 bass, I use a white emp. on the batter and ambasadors on the reso side.
it sounds awsome. for muffling I jsut put a small pillow that touches both heads, and teh tention is a medium tention .. nao too loose not to tight.
for a micking situation. if I have a head with a mike hole I put teh mic in front of the hole it my reso head is solid with no hole I put the mic in front of the bater head just like if I were miking a flor tom, but the mic is alwais on a stand , never atached to the drum itself
i use 2 22 x 18i kick drums.. ( triggerd ) I just make sure the resonating head ( front ) has a crazy picture on and the attack head ( where the beaters hits ) a really nice really one.. Evans coasted, orrrrr the kick drum heads i've come across are the basic mapex vx heads that come with a mapex kit i think there better than anyother head i've used so far.. not sound wise but just to play.. you can drive a beater into it as hard as you want and . wow .. brb cream
