Best Drum Set Tom-Tom Drumheads in 2020



Remo RT-0008-00 8" Gray Tunable Practice Pad with Ambassador Coated Drumhead Review:


 I'm no professional at drumming but this is perfect for my needs. Life got busy for me and I stopped playing drums, plus moved into an apartment and couldn't bring my drums with me :( . This practice pad is perfect to help me relearn the drums again, starting with simple practice. I like Remo, I feel like it is reliable. This practice pad is built sturdy. I don't use it on a stand, just the table and it works great. It doesn't move or slip around at all. I love the sound of it- but I'm the type of drummer that just loves to be loud and hear what I am doing. I also love the gritty feel of the surface. The bounce is perfect! Not too bouncy, not too not bouncy either. Sure Remo is not top of the line for drum products, but this is built well, even heavier than I thought it would be. Very happy with this purchase!

Note: The video I uploaded is just a simple one meant to simply show the practice pad's natural bounce and sound. I hope that it can aid you in making the decision to buy it or not :)



Evans EC Reverse Dot Snare Drum Head, 14 Inch Review:


I will be switching ALL of my snare drums to this head. Why?
the sound is PERFECT!
the tuning is PERFECT!
Produces rich VOLUME for brushes that will last for the life of the head.
It is NOT CLEAR! It is NOT WHITE! It is a lovely OPAQUE FROST!
By far, it is the most beautiful head I have ever seen and it is a perfect match for the Ludwig Super Phonic aluminum alloy shell as oppose to ugly old white, white, white, or a big ugly black black dot on white. The silver center dot has a really slick, brushed 21st century metal look to it and...well... IT'S JUST GOT CLASS! It DOES NOT have a cheesy sprayed on "ruff-coat" finish but the surface is ETCHED (like the Evans jazz head) for brush use...VERY easy to clean any of that dark residue you get from wire brushes.

Included a shot next to my 5 1/2 Millennium snare that has a Remo Renaissance head.
I use a 200 or 300 clear on the snare side and Pure Sound snares.
Sorry Remo...Evans just ate your lunch.



Evans G2 Coated Drum Head, 14 Inch Review:


The new Evans G2 clear 360 outshine all in my opinion, even the old G2 clear. No flat punches or cheap overtones, just warm, full tonality. The harder you play, the more they sing. If you mix them for a live gig you will find other drummers asking you how you got them tuned and sounding so perfect. In fact, I still find myself playing fills and ignoring cymbals just because it's so fun to play the drums lol. Mine is a 7 piece PDP Concept Maple. With the F.A.S.T. sizing and the 360 heads it's near dummy proof for professional sound. I put Genera resonant heads on the flip. Tune the reso first!!!

One word of advice for Amazon shoppers. Send a message to the seller and DOUBLE VERIFY that you're getting a 360 model and not the old G2. I ordered 12 heads for the set below and one seller sent me an older model 14 inch batter even though the website said it was clearly a 360. Now the stupid 14 inch tom batter sounds like crap and gets my OCD acting up. Honest mistake on the sellers part but still irritating. Sometimes sellers just google and hit copy/paste for descriptions. Do your homework.

Evans EC2 Tompack, Clear, Rock (10 inch, 12 inch, 16 inch) Review:


I've been using the EC2 clear heads for about 3 yrs exclusively! Just for piece of mind, I tried many other types of Evans heads, and other brands as well, like Remo...and I kept coming back to the Evans EC2 clears. Now that Evans has the new 360 degree technology, they tune even easier and faster because they sit on the bearing edge more evenly, almost perfectly, and without any play. This allows me to put the head on the drum, then put my hoop on, finger tighten my tension rods, and then tune accordingly(about one turn each rod in a cross pattern, then about a half turn the second time around). You may prefer to tune a different way! These heads sound somewhat fat, with not too much sustain (just right), and just the right amount of attack! The sound I get is perfect for live as well a recording, and I must add I use Evans Genera Resonant heads on the bottom to get the sound I'm referring to. I recommend giving these a try and hear for yourself how great they sound, I'll bet you won't be disappointed. Even on lower end drums they will sound really good. I had a Tama Rock Star kit, used the Evans EC2 clear heads on the kit, and the kit sounded pretty darn good for a low end kit!

Evans ST Dry Drum Head, 14 Inch Review:


I absolutely 100% LOVE these heads!! I have two Ludwig Supraphonic 402 metal snares and to be honest, they sound great no matter what head you use as long as they are good quality heads but these ST Dry heads take the snare to a whole new level. I have used just about every head out there throughout the years and have usually been pretty happy with most of them. A couple of years ago I switched from a Remo coated Emperor, which sounded great, to an Evans coated G2 because I had been hearing a lot of good reports on them. It sounded better than the Emperor so I stuck with the G2's for a couple of years and was quite happy with them, but found I still had to use either a small piece of Moon Jel or a tone control ring to get rid of excess overtones. Recently it was time for a head change again so I decided to try
one of these Evans ST Dry heads. Only took a few days to get here from Amazon, and when I put it on the 402 and tuned it up, I was totally blown away at how GREAT it sounded. I am a big fan of Bonham (who isn't) and always try to get a similar sound as he got out of his 402 snares. This thing gave me exactly that Bonzo sound I have been striving for
these years and with the small vent holes all around the outside edge of the head I do not use any Moonjel, rings, or any other muffling whatsoever. I get a huge crack on rimshots but it still has enough sensitivity for lighter playing near the center of the head, buzz rolls, and even works very well with brushes. All I can say is that without question, this is the
best snare head I have ever used, and I will be ordering more for my other snares when it is time to change heads. HIGHLY recommend these to anyone that wants a great snare sound. This is the one you want, believe me.
