Hey folks....for a long time now I've been using clear pinstripes for tom batter heads with clear (ambassadors?)for resonant heads with no muffler execept for a moongel patch.
In the past I went for a deeper, darker sound but lately have tuned them up for more tone.

But I'm just not satisfied with the volume or tone and wonder if it's the heads or something else. Even mic'd up, they don't seem to carry or project like I think they should. (early 70's Gretsch maple shells)

After seeing a lot of folks on youtube using coated heads, I'm wondering if switching to coated heads would help with both volume and tone.

Like the powerstroke series or Ambassador X or something.

Looking for experience based opinions on what I might need here. Thanks in advance.
