    Congrats on the kit!

    Are they used or brand new and what sound are you after?

    I generally always rid of the stock heads immediately in favor of my preference. Not sure what sound you are seeking but a "safe" starting point is a single ply coated top with a single ply coated or clear reso. Evan's G1's are my favorites but that's just my preference for sound and feel being a jazz player.

    What is your preferred style and sound?

    I agree get rid of the original heads. I would go for the coated Evans G2's/G1's best combo with my experience my toms. As for the snare coated G2's/Hazy 300. Good luck hope this helps.

    I'm thinking this thread is in the wrong forum. Are we trading heads here?
