What heads do you use?

What heads do you guys use?

Evans heads for the toms. I'm planning on getting new ones soon. Single-ply. More echo!

I love my snare head though. It's an Attack Old School head. Drumtree Jeff Ocheltree signature head.

No longer in production Must be sure to take care of it...

bass - powerstroke III or Emad, depends on my mood while shopping
toms - coated amb over clear amb. Depending on the music I'm playing at the time of purchase, I might also go over clear amb over clear amb;
snare - coated amb over amb snareside, always, no exceptions.

All Evans heads. I kinda hate Remo.

Snare - J1 Etched Batter, Glass Resonant
Bass - EQ4 Batter, Gretsch Resonant
Toms - Coated G1 Batter, Genera Resonant
RotoToms - J1 Etched

I'm thinking about making my toms J1 Etched as well. I wish I could use calf skin.
