I have a couple of questions on drum heads. I'm not a drummer, but I own a Mapex M Birch set for the studio and I've been working on trying to get it sound as good as possible. I'm recording mostly folk, alt. country, jazz, etc. The two drummer that I am recording most have a pretty light touch - though I have a couple of heavy hitters in now and then. I've been using Remo Pintripes as batter heads and clear, single ply Remo heads that came with the set a few years ago as resonant heads. I tend to tune pretty low, without trying to tune to the very lowest note possible. I like a tonal sound with a pretty quick decay and not too many high overtones. I use a bit of Moongel or extra damping. While most of the action is in the batter (top) head, I'd like to hear opinions on how much the resonant head affects sound - and what type of resonant head you use. Is there any reason to change out resonant heads as long as they are tuning up with no problems? I've liked the Pinstripes, but I'm thinking of trying the Powerstroke 4s on the toms and kick. I realize that it might be too dead, but it would be low and I might get the sound a like without any extra damping. Any comments on this? Please feel free to add any comments you have on drum heads for recording.
