For so long, I've been going back and forth between coated and clear. Most of the time, the genre or style determines this choice. But for just my default configuration for heads, I've been torn. But for the past few months I've been trying this out, and I see alot of drummers do this. There's a semi-old picture of my kit setup in my signature, and I'm still rockin that setup but here's the point. On my rack tom and 14" floor tom, I have Coated heads. And on my 16 I have an Evans hydraulic. Does anyone esle do that? I just can't stomach the sound of my 16 tom with coated heads, but all the other toms are absolutely beautiful. That's why I've been going back and forth. But then I thought to myself..."why not do both" I know it doesn't look as cool as matching heads but...I'm not going for looks over sound. Anybody else do this?
