    Let me take this opportunity to clarify my choices in answering your questions concerning head choices.

    A majority of my gigs were "weekend warrior" outdoor festival events held on makeshift stages with an awning overhead. I found through trial and error from playing at these venues more than once of what worked the best for me and the sound guy.

    I found the clear plastic heads were loud enough to project out from under the awning.

    For the indoor small venue gigs, the coated heads and a small footprint was the ideal situation. My first gig at the venue pictured below, there was no stage and the kit was a few feet from the bartender's cash registrar. I was surrounded by hard surfaces and the kit was shoved in the corner next to a brick wall.

    I had my Gretsch Renowns outfitted with clear EC2 batters and I had complaints from the bartender that I was too loud.

    For the second gig at this particular venue, I brought in a 1 up 1 down kit with coated heads and I had no complaints from the bar staff. Bingo!

    Nice one, thanks
