    Default Changing Resonant Heads

    I know this really isn't about tuning... but it kind of is

    Anyways, swapped out my resonant heads from Hydraulic to Genera Resonant Evans.
    Made a crazy difference.

    Oh yeah I imagine that would make a huge difference, just like changing hydraulic batters for non-hydraulic heads.

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.

    Yeah, big difference! Sounds great. My 16" floor tom currently has Remo Pinstripes on top AND bottom. I'm seriously considering swapping out the reso for something thinner.

    1)... yeah I'm a lucky man! Both Harper and Cailyn...
    2) Talk to your boy Bish... he put them on and I bought them from him
    3) I spent some time tuning it the next day and it's AWESOME. But I didn't want to change it for the video to be completely fair.

    I always use g2's over g1's, emperors's over ambassador's etc.
    I will change to different batters but always stick to single ply plain resos.

    I have been toying with putting a few cotton balls, or things inside my reso to cut back on the ring of the floor tom. I find you can put 100 moon gels on the batter but it will still ring out. Dampening the reso is a great way to shorten the tone without killing it.. Perhaps that was the reason for the hydraulics on the bottom?
