Coated Ambassadors over Clear Ambassadors on toms. Coated Ambassador over Hazy Ambassador Snare. Coated PS3 on the bass drum. Whatever front head on the bass drum you already have.

Yowee....20 kicks....get one of each kind and experiment...;)
I know you meant 20” bd’s....couldn’t resist.

Otherwise what kind(s) of musics are these used for as that may determine choices....

Or go completely against the grain and put Chrome “Hydraulics” on everything....top and bottom, front and back, and especially the snare sides. Or a different head for each drum a la the 20 kicks.....and don’t forget to mix brands....
Now getting back to the musics played....go from there....although ya can’t go wrong with High on Stress’ suggestion, except may as well replace the fronts of the bd’s to have the full “new shiny” experience.

I’d recommend against the hydraulics for the Ludwigs at least. I like them on other drums but old Ludwigs are warm enough to begin with and sound dead with hydros to me. Mine have coated vintage ambassadors over Ludwig medium coated at the moment and sound great. The evan reso 7 os the closest I’ve found to the Ludwig mediums. Bass drum coated emperor with felt strip or powerstoke depending on how modern a sound you want
