I have in my possession a Pearl Birch series 7 piece kit, I think its from the 80's. It's been played pretty hard and is in need of some TLC, which I plan to do over the next little while. First up is replacing all the heads. This is my first issue. I am a guitarist, not a drummer so I know what type of guitar strings I prefer, but I'm rolling dice while looking at drum heads.
The snare drum is a metal shell with the ?floating lugs? (ie. they are not attached to the shell), the rest of the drums are of various sizes with all birch shells.
Can anyone recommend where to start in selecting the right heads (other than the obvious get the right size)? I expect I'll be playing alot of alternative rock/classic rock, but maybe some funk as well if that is relevant.
