    Default Remo Pinstripe or Evans EC2?

    Discuss.

    I'm interested to see what people have to say on the subject because it pits a time tested favorite (Pinstripe) against a newer head (EC2) with a bit different method of edge control dampening.

    (They are also the two I'm trying to decide on for my next set of tom heads.)

    I dont know why Im answering this question because Ive hav'nt tried the ec2's. Ive had pinstripes & liked them quite a bit... But I actualy like the (plain) ebony's. Ebony's do come in a pinstripe though.

    Why do you ask? What is the playing situation you are about to enter? There are different aspects to consider if you are about to tour or record.

    Ok, a couple of things:

    1.) Can we keep the conversation to Pinstripes and EC2s? I have used clear G2s and didn't particularly care for them.

    2.) My point in this poll is to try to determine the difference and preference for two heads that on the surface seem to be very similar. G2s and Emperors don't fit in that category because they don't employ and edge dampening system. I want to hear comments based on personal preference and personal experience - I have experience with Pinstripes, but no experience with EC2s.

    3.) My playing situation is contemporary Christian rock in an auditorium.

    4.) I've used Pinstripes in the past and to date they are probably my favorite head out of the following: Clear G2s, Pinstripes, Performance IIs, Smooth White Emperors

    In this case I would choose the Evans heads. My reason is because of the more resonant properties of the Evans over the Pinnies. I have used Pinnies in the past, but only when on long tours where replacement heads, lack of time for fine tuning etc have been issues. Pinnies stand up well to being thrown in and out of vans everyday. They tune easily, but of course what you gain in one area you lose in another.

    Try clear emperors, but if you are down to those two id say pinstripes.

    A head I'm interesting in trying someday is the Emperor Suede, but I'm not sure that Clear Emps are going to get me where I want to go.

    Hey, I'm using Suede Ambassadors on my toms right now, and I love them. They have plenty of attack, and the warmth of coated heads. I did have more success tuning them lower rather than higher though. I have the resonant head (clear single ply) tuned medium thight and the batter tuned a bit looser, and I get a nice low end attack from them with a bit of sustain. And unlike other Remo heads, they don't go through the "cracking" proccess (i.e. they sound better faster).

    That being said, I'm not really a huge fan of Pinstripes. I had some on my toms awhile back and I couldn't get rid of the "boingy" sound you usually get from clear heads. I sucked at tuning then, though. If you want a fat, warm sound with little to no sustain (depends on if you're mic'ing, I guess), I'd go with the Pinstripes.

    The Ec2s have a wider tuning range. I like them better than pinstripes. Either can be played wide open. I'm trying the EC2s after using clear Emperrors for a long time. Of those two , I haven't decided which I like better.
