Alright, a little back story. I was a drummer for about 3 years and then had to sell my kit as I became a guitarist in a band, then I played an electric set for about 2 years, well I just recieved an old kit for free and am getting back into drums again. The kit is about 20 years old and has never had a new head installed.

I literally know nothing about the different types of heads and am looking for advice. I always liked Remo heads when I drummed back in the day.

I want to replace all the heads and resonance heads on my drums. I play mostly rock/grunge drums. Mostly like Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, but I also dabble in Pink Floyd and blues type drumming. I like loud ass drums and tons of Cymbals, haha.

So what should I go with? I need heads for a 16" Floor Tom, 14" Snare, 13" Tom, 10" Tom, 8" Tom, and a 22" Bass Drum. What materials/types do I look for?

Thanks in advance!

Remo Pinstripe/Ambassador or (What I use) Emperor. Clear heads and they're good for rock and most genres really.

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

I put an Evans Genera HD head on my snare and I really liked it. And I back Niiko on the tom head choices.

Some heads work better with wood types, too. What kind of wood are your shells?

I'd be going clear emperors over clear ambassadors, classic combo.
Pinstripes are ok if you want long lasting heads and will not be gigging, otherwise they sound $hite IMHO.

Evans g2 coated, there double play so they'll last like forever i use those and ive had mine for about over a year and they look like i haent even touched them and they have for the snare the powerstroke where it makes the snare dounds delcious like a baby fetus eatting a waffle :P but this brand is pretty bad ass, but i heard remo embassadors being alright
