which remo heads (which are available in 6 inch) would be best on octoban drums? i want no ringing at all though. i would quite like them to sound like mike portnoys set if possible! CHEERS!

you can get emperors in 6 inch sizes but would they be better octoban heads than pintripes to sound like mike portnoy's octobans?

Clear Emperors are usually standard on octobans. They will provide some dampening because of the 2 plies but yet remain open for projection.

i would consider cs black dots, i have them on my timbales and they definitely suit me for what sound im looking for, with little ring

I use Pinstripes, but I'm thinking of switching to something a little less muffled. No matter what you do, you're not going to get much resonance at all out of a set of Octobans, but the Pinstripes do sound really muffled.

Does it have to be REMO?
Can't you maybe try to Performance IIs? Or Hydraulics? or something like that?

And oh if you're gonna get remo heads, why don't you just get some rototoms as well.

Actually, I like Evans heads too. I might try the G2's or G1's. Hydralics would probaly sound too dead. And I don't know too much about Aquarians, as I stopped using them a while ago, but any one or two ply non-muffled head should work. As I said, Pinstripes do sound a little dead for me. And I love my Roto-toms. Now Pinstripes sound amazing on them.

Yeah, I got both. I actually think that I use the Roto-toms more though. I also saw, monsierdrumdude, that you are planning on building your own set of octobans. That's actually a good idea. I've seen it done before. I'm actually thinking about building the low pitch set to go with my high pitch set so that I'll have the whole octave. Here's some people who have built their own:

Like I said many times Portoneys kit has been processed through pa systems etc. to get the best sound so you may not get the sound you are after. He does use clear Emperors.
