I have just purchased a new mapex m birch kit. It comes with ut heads fitted. I have just fitted pinstripe tom heads and an ambassador snare head to my other kit. Are the ut heads a) better quality than the pinstripes, b) more or less expensive. Also I cannot find them listed anywhere are the exclusivley made for mapex, the ut ones that is.

If I replace them which heads would be best. On my old kit I have remo pinstripes on the toms and an ambassador on the snare. My new kit has the following drums an 8" 10" 12" and 14" toms and 14" snare. Would the same be ok again or would something like evans be better. Any advise most welcome as my new mapex kit is the first "proper" kit i've owned.
U.T. heads are a crimped drumhead made by Remo in China or Taiwan. They are not crimplock. U.T. heads are made with a steel insert ring inside the aluminum channel instead of an adhesive pour. Remo Weatherking heads, all made in the U.S., have an adheisve poured in the channel. We believe that the sound quality of the poured head is superior to that of the crimped head.
