On my Ludwig Blackbeauty (a similar drum) I have really liked the CS the most on it. I've also had good success with standard heads: ambassador and emperor.


+1

Agreed.

It seems the wood shells suffer some with the heft there in the center of the head, such as with a CS; but respond better to having a Coated Ambassador ( or Emperor ). Or a Coated Ambassador with a Rem-O or some other form of Richie Ring or even a bit of MoonGel ( if you need to attenuate any overtones that might bother your ear).

Metal shells, however, seem to work better with a CS type head.
