I switched over to Remo heads a few years ago (just because I felt like using something different after 20 years of Aquarian heads) but I miss the Super Kick series. The film Aquarian uses is the best one for consistent bass drum tone.
I also miss the Aquarian coated heads because their process is much more durable than the coating used by Remo.

I have a whole room full of kits with PS3's and they all sound amazing. There is no right or wrong head. They all have something different in sound and feel to offer.

What's funny is that even tho Remo and Evans heads are made similar, they have totally different sounds altogether to me. For instance, a Remo coated Emperor has a little more open sound with more overtones than a coated G2. The coated Emperor has a sound very similar to an Evans G1. I've found that I prefer the sound of Evans G2 on the floor toms but prefer the Emperors on the high toms... Kind of strange I guess
This question has been debated over the years and I've learned a few things, some from the companies' web sites, some from interviews in Modern Drummer magazine, and some things from the Evans Specialist who shows up here on the PDF from time to time. Remo uses DuPont Mylar for all of its heads. Evans admits to using films from various manufacturers that work best for the sound they're trying to achieve, but they do admit to using DuPont Mylar on their G1 and G2 series. Both companies mount there heads in an aluminum hoop with epoxy, so an uncoated G1 and G2 should should exactly like an uncoated Ambassador or Emperor I've used both and see no real difference. Now if you're talking Coates head, that's a different story.

The 360 technology to me has not really changed Evans sound, but it sure makes a WORLD of difference in tuning. I've never seen heads tune up faster and easier than the 360s do.
