A gift of heads?
I'd give them a try, that's the only way you're going to know if you'll like them for sure.
If you don't, no great loss in the effort to find out.
You'll be better informed after all is said and done.
Leave them on for a while; don't just quickly swap them out if they don't strike you as something you'd normally go for. Give yourself enough time to let them settle in and to give you a few days or so to listen and tune them so you've gotten the most out of the effort. You can always re-head the kit with what you had on there before.
Uncle sounds like a nice guy

1. It's often fun and always useful to experiment with new products, but that usually costs money. You have a chance to experiment on someone else's nickel. That should be viewed as a welcome opportunity.
2. New heads of almost any brand and variety generally will sound better than old, beat up heads of almost any brand and variety. If your current heads are worn out, then these probably will be an upgrade. If your current heads are relatively new, then you could always wait until they're old.
3. If you don't want them, send them to me.
Good luck, and have fun.

Aquarian has much better quality control than Remo and better support. ..
Some rate Aquarian heads far superior in quality and tone. ..Easier to tune. ....I have used them at one time extensively. ..
Right now, I use Remo....Tomorrow, who knows....
