New Heads for a Premier Resonator

Have you considered any of Aquarian's offerings?

I've been a pinstripe player for decades, but I'm about to try the Performance 2 as I've heard good things about them. I'll order a Response 2 and a Studio X as well just in case the Performance 2s are too dead for me.
I've used Performance 2's before. They are very Pinstripe-like and they're great for adding a little focus. I used them mostly on a birch kit and they toned down the brightness a little but kept them sounding big and full. I really like the Response 2 a lot as well. I'm definitely a 2-ply tom head kind of a guy so I've experimented a lot with almost all of Aquarian's offerings, from Super 2, Response 2, Performance 2, and the Force 10.
I am open to other options such as what Harry said above. I only put those as that's what I'd been told would be best, so please if you think there is something better for me let me know. Thanks
I think Pinstripes are a great choice for your drums to get the sound you are probably looking for. My favorite Remo head is the Vintage Emperor so I'd recommend those too.

Resonators are a different beast. You do have the lining in no?. Back in the day they were a contender for me as I dig Premier kits. I've owned 3..no resonators. They have their own sound from what I gather. Patty Smyth..THE WARRIOR tune had resonators on it if I'm not mistaken. Without the liner aren't the shells basically premier projectors?. Loads of experimentation on those babies. What a coooool kit!.
Yes I have the liners in. They really give out a boom as it is, so looking forward to putting decent heads on
