Kevlar heads for rope tension drum?

I need heads for a 16" rope drum. Would kevlar or composite be best? I prefer a medium sustain, no echo, or overtones to speak of, a good crisp sound that doesn't 'ring'. If I put kevlar on the batter, do I have to put kevlar on the snare side? (I know this doesn't matter with modern drums, but with rope tension, both heads get the same tension.)
