    Default Something Different -- Single Ply Batters

    I bought three new batter heads from Aquarian that would not fit my old Gretsch Jasper shells.
    I sent them an email and they kindly sent to me three new American Vintage batter heads (free of charge) that will fit old shells.
    (And I got a full refund from the vendor that sold me the other set).

    They are 10 mil coated, which I have not used in 40 years, so I'm in an interested state right now trying these out.
    It was also time to put on new resos and I went with clear Ambos (because THEY FIT)................always a good choice.

    These new batters are colored cream to look like calf skin.....................I really don't care about that...................I just hope they sound good.
    After playing a few days I will adjust tuning and see if they can sound good.

    Thank you, slink.................

    So far, not bad.
    I always work on new heads for a couple of weeks, tuning, stretching, retuning, before I make an overall assessment.
    They do not feel weak or spongy to me.

    That is the way customer service should be. Nice! Peace and goodwill.
