    Default Question About the Drums...

    So I noticed Alex switched from Pinstripes to something else, the question is, what?

    Smooth white?
    Coated?
    Emperor?
    Ambassador?
    Powerstroke?

    Any happen to know? I played Pinstripes, then got some Evans G2 coated heads, and now those are worn out and I'd like to return to Remo. I like the sound AVH is getting though on these new heads.

    What makes you think that? (If that comes off as a smartass comment, it's not supposed to be.)

    Because they just have the same warm tone that Al has.
    I have 11..yes 11 drum sets and most of my kits have them. They are universally the most used heads on drums. Especially Ludwigs...

    I may be wrong, but like I said. Its just a guess.
    I know in 04 he used clear heads on that maple kit, but I'll look at some pics of this tour and see if I can spot a close up of a head.

    Back in the late 70's and early eighties he was using Black dot heads... as were most rockers...

    I saw VH live in Phoenix tonight, during Al's solo I thought of this thread! Anyway his toms are definately white Remo's, beyond that I can't tell...
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    Alex could flip a garbage can over and play it and it would still sound amazing.
