    Since Remo doesnt have a head that is equal to the EMAD - I suppose listing the Evans EMAD in Coated white was not necessary? Since its the head I use on all 3 of my kicks - I wanted to mention it.
    Yamaha Oak Custom 22x17 with Brass Kick Port, Brass Hoop Claws,10-12-14 racks, 16 Floor and all toms have Brass Hoops and a Tama Starclassic Bubinga Elite 14x6.5 snare in Quilted Mocha Burst and Black Nickel hardware. All hi-end Zildjian Cymbals - K Dark Thin crashes & splashes, a Zildjian A crash & a Meinl 16" crash, Avedis Zildjian 1964 ride, K Custom hats plus New Beat hats on Closed X-Hat.

    A mil is a thousandth of an inch, or about 1/39th of a millimeter.

    Makes more sense, no?

    An example, 6 mil is the thickness of the vapor barrier ( plastic) that we use for covering insulation in residential homes or use on diy homemade green houses. No plywood is that thin. .

    I thought I would add this information that I found in a chart which shows equivalencies between Remo and Evans heads. Post in this thread if you know of any updates that need to be made to the chart either for new heads or discontinued heads.

    Also if you know about Aquarian heads then lets see those equivalencies too. If we all keep a full difinitive list up to date I think it will be very helpfull for any drummers who are wondering about head selection.

    Heres the list:

    Toms/Snare
    Evans J1 = Remo Diplomat - 10mil Etched (7.5mil effective)
    Evans G1 = Remo Ambassador - 10mil Clear/Coated
    Evans EC1 = No Remo equivalent - 10mil Clear/Coated w/Edge Control
    Evans GPlus = Remo Ambassador X - 12mil Clear/Coated
    No Evans equivalent = Remo Vintage A - 2-ply 7.5- and 3-mil Polyester Film Coated
    Evans G2 = Remo Emperor - 2 x 7mil Clear/Coated
    Evans Onyx = Remo Ebony Suede Emperor - 2 x 7.5mil Matte Black Coated
    Evans EC2 = Remo Pinstripe - 2 x 7mil Clear/Coated w/Edge Control
    Evans Hydraulic = No Remo equivalent - 2 x 7mil Clear/Blue/Black, Oil Filled
    Evans EC Resonant = No Remo equivalent - 10mil w/Edge Control

    Snare/Snare Side
    Evans Power Center = Remo Controlled Sound - 10mil Coated w/5mil Reinforcement Dot
    Evans Genera = Remo Powerstroke 3 - 10mil Coated w/Overtone Control Ring
    Evans EC1 Reverse Dot = No Remo equivalent - 14mil w/Edge Control & Reinforcement Dot
    Evans Genera HD = Remo Powerstroke 4 - 1 x 7.5mil, 1 x 5mil w/Overtone Control Ring
    Evans EC Reverse Dot = No Remo equivalent - 1 x 6.5mil, 1 x 10mil w/Edge Control & Reinforcement Dot
    Evans Snare Side Hazy 200 = Remo Diplomat Snare Side - 2mil Hazy
    Evans Snare Side Hazy 300 = Ambassador Snare Side - 3mil Hazy

    Bass
    Evans EQ4 = Remo Powerstroke 3 - 10mil Clear w/Overtone Control Ring
    Evans EMAD = No Remo equivalent - 10mil Clear w/EMAD Damping
    Evans EMAD Onyx = No Remo equivalent - 10mil Matte Black Coated w/EMAD Damping
    Evans EQ3 = Remo Powerstroke 4 - 2 x 6.5mil w/Overtone Control Ring & Removable Muffle Ring
    Evans EMAD2 = Remo Powersonic - 1 x 6.5mil, 1 x 10mil w/EMAD Damping

    Bass Resonant
    Evans Resonant Black = No Remo equivalent - 7.5mil Smooth Black
    Evans REMAD = No Remo equivalent - 7.5mil Smooth Black w/Overtone Control Ring & Offset Hole
    Evans Onyx Resonant = No Remo equivalent - 7.5mil Matte Black Coated w/Overtone Control Ring & Offset Hole
    Evans EQ3 = Remo Powerstroke 3 w/Hole - 10mil Smooth Black w/Internal Control Ring & Offset Hole
    When was the last time that this list was updated? If not, are there now a lot of new/discontinued head?
    Thanks :D

    At 60 y.o. I'm learning to play drums at the urging of friends & family who've watched me pound dashboards & furniture since the 60's.

    I'm clueless at tuning them to get the desired sound.
    To complicate matters further, I can't read music.

    I have a Neary Drum-Torque and would like to find recommended settings; (pounds; 0-25), for rock/general sound.

    I have Pearl drums:
    14" snare
    12" toms
    22" kick
    and a
    SP brand 14" floor tom

    The snare is used, the rest are new. I used the guide I received with the Neary, and all but the snare were, .... just ok using those specs. The snare I tuned tighter assuming it had stretched with time.

    I don't have a mentor or know any drummers, I'd like have them sound better.

    SUGGESTIONS, comments......-?

    I prefer Remo's and my latest 2 purchases have really reinforced that. My new Tattoo skin snare drum head is really fantastic. I have only done one gig with it but it sounds fantastic and was very easy to tune up. Also I decided to finally try a coated bass drum head and WOW, I am blown away by the coated ps3. I have honestly never gotten soo many compliments and questions regarding my bass drum. This thing is a really nice low controlled boom and is the sound I have been looking for for a long time now. I highly recommend both of these heads. 20170325_102329.jpg
