    What is the Evans equivalent of:

    Coated Ambassadors
    Clear Ambassadors

    What is the thinnest clear 2-ply heads that evans makes?

    Would anyone recommend a coated 2-ply head for batter bass head? I currently have a coated ambassdor on my batter bass head, but it doesn't sound very deep. I want a kind of jazzy/funky motown/tight but dirty/oophy kind of low end bass drum sound. I believe it is a 20 inch kick. Any recommendations near the coated 2-ply department, because I am thinking that the 1 ply one I have now isn't adding too much lows....

    You might give Aquarian Modern Vintage heads a shot. The resonant-side kick head has a felt strip adhered to it. I've had good experiences with these as batter heads.

    On my 4-piece 1970 Ludwig I am going to go G-Plus's on top, with EC-Reso's on bottom (Hazy 300 for Snare Bottom), with GMAD and EQ3 on Bass.

    On my 7-piece DW Collector's I am going with EMAD2 and EMAD Reso on Kick, EC2-Coated, Hazy 300 on Snare, and EC2 Coated for top toms and EC2 Clear for bottoms.

    I also like the EC-1 and EC-2 heads. I play a maple Gretsch kit and they sound great. Depends on the shell, what kind of shape its in and the tuning.
