I've only just realised now that i need new drum heads for my drum kit, the drum heads I have at the moment are rubbish as they were from the starter kit i got, I can't describe it I dont know the terms for it but when I hit any of the toms, it's not like a sudden sound it just like echos/goes on for ages.

So what are decent drum heads for a decent price aswell??

Evans G2's, clear or coated, are great. Moongel dampening gels are also great for muffling annoying overtones on drum heads.

The fretboard is dry because it is more than likely made in China.

I wonder how he came to this conclusion.

Any head will do you nicely-- Attack, Remo, Aquarian, Evans (my favorite) all make great stuff, so in the end it's more about what kind of tone you like. But since Evans are my favorite, I'll +rep those.

How have you got your current heads tuned?

The Evans G2's, as suggested, are a really solid skin and are available pretty much everywhere. If you like a little friction when you're playing, or if you tend to play quite heavily and haphazardly (like myself) then you may prefer the coated version as they offer a little more 'stick' and feel.

The Remo Pinstripe models are quite cool as well. I've always had a solid experience using them. They look quite sharpish, too, obviously - not that that matters greatly. The Ambassador is quite popular as a snare skin while the Pinstripe models are generally used - by myself included - for the toms.

Aquarian make an awesome kick drum head called the Super-Kick.

Never tried Evans so I can't say anything.

I use Remo Clear Emperors on the toms of my maple kit and a Powerstroke 3 for my kick. But that's for the maple kit.

My cheaper kit, I use Remo Pinstripes... They're solid, especially with some Moongel

They also let white people into the KFC and the NBA now.

Good to see the Remo guys coming out of the woodwork...I'm a Remo fan m'self.

I use Coated Emperors on toms, Clear Powerstroke 3 on bass (most of time, sometimes I find myself using Coated Emperor also on the bass), and Evans Genera Dry for the snare. Not a big Evans fan, but I've tried about all the Remo snare heads, and so far the Evans G. Dry was the only one that got close enough to the sound I wanted.
