  • mesh heads anyone?

    Can anyone recommend a good manufacturer of mesh heads to use with ddrum triggers? How are the Kontrol Screen ones? Has anyone tried the Pearl ones?

    I am new to this (just got a DM5Pro a few weeks ago) but my experience with the Pearls was that, at least on my kit, they "clattered" slightly, which caused an instantaneous (but very short-lived) buzz each time I hit them, as they made contact with the pad underneath. I had them tuned pretty tight but still got this little rattle. They certainly didn't make the kit much quieter at all than the original heads, though the timbre of the "thwack" was different - perhaps a bit higher.

    But, as I said, I am new to this, so am not sure if my experience is necessarily representative of someone else's who has been at this longer.

      I use the Hart Magnums and ddrum pro triggers on my converted kit and they work great. I do fill the drums with foam and have a small amount touching the head to mute excessive vibration, which also helps with the bounciness of the mesh.

        I use the roland heads for toms and snare. I use the black 2 ply hart headsfor the bass drum. I use to use the black harts for snare and toms, But I found the rolands have better triggering response. I haven't tried the new harts, There has been alot of good reviews about them. I tried the pearls and they broke quickly.
