I admit I resisted using Evans again. I've used them before with OK results. But I ended up trying Level 360 clear G2s as tom batters and clear Level 360 G1s as resos. Immediate improvement. The drums came to life like never before. The toms tuned up quickly and easily. I also have a power center reverse dot on the snare and a clear GMAD on the kick. I've finally found my sound!

great reso heads

By Mudflaps

from Wisconsin

Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

When I put these heads on my kit as batters they made my drums sound very hollow and they got a weird ring but when I put them on as resos with Remo Pinstripes as the batters the sound was amazing. So batter=horrible, Reso=Great

Evans G1 clear batter head

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

I have used this head on my friend's old Pearl 4-peice drum set, with a 12" and a 16" tom. The toms had a lot of overtone but he had some Evans e-rings on the toms and on the snare, and the rings really helped the overtones. But even with the rings, I still didnt quite like the sound. They made the drums sound hollow, and echo-ish, and had a strange, faint ringing that made the entire set sound weird. I highly recomend the Evans G2 coated batter head, you wont be disapointed with that one. But this one is unpredictable. I dont recomend getting these.

Use as a Resonant!

By Skater1

from Rochester, NY

See all my reviews

Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

This drumhead should be classified as a resonant head only, not a batter. If used as a batter, it has an extremely weak, ringy sound that wouldnt be too far off from the stock head you're taking off that came from the factory. Instead, if used as a resonant head, it has incredible tone, and a fantastic low end. I paired it with my G2 coated heads and it sounds like an absolute dream. I recently turned a side snare into a rack tom, and with the help of the G2 coated as the batter and G1 as the reso, it sings like any other tom in its size. Two thumbs way way up for Evans!

    Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

    I use clear and coated Evans G1's primarily as a resonance head to accompany my Remo CS batter heads. The clear G1's make my tom and floor tom really boom, with more prominent bass without too much overtone. The coated G1, accompanied with the Gibraltar 14" 42-strand snare wire, gives my coated Remo CS snare batter head a hefty chopping sound with great tone, rather than a thin single ply snare side head that makes a smacking, slapping sound. Great product that fits my needs perfectly.

      Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

      I recently jumped off the Remo bandwagon and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Not only is their product fantastic, but they also have some of the best customer service I've ever encountered treating me like a big name endorsee and helping me to choose heads during this brand transition.
      These heads sounds fantastic! I'm pairing with them with the EC2 series on my collection of Pearl toms. I tune them slightly higher than the batter heads and they just work. Many people usually ignore their resonate heads but they are a vital part to your sound, so don't forget to change them! I'm also Rockin a 6" and a 8" on my LP Mini Timbales and they sound fantastic. Given they are one ply I wouldn't recommend using these for batters on anything other than small drums like timbales where you want a lot of crack and high pitch tones.

        Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

        I originally purchased this drumhead as a replacement for my 10" tom. I quickly found out it was not at all what I expected. It is an Evans drumhead, so it is easy to tune, it is single ply, which makes for more resonance, and it was clear, which explains the attack, and it is very durable. I would prefer G2 Clears for the kind of music I play, but these make some wicked resonant head. They are also great backup heads, because they are more affordable than the standard G2's. In the end, not a bad first tom drum head. (P.S. I'll upload an image soon)

        Best resonant head

        By NNNNICK

        from Suburb of Cleveland, Ohio

        Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

        These heads are the ideal resonant head for all toms. Ultra sensitive with great response. I use Evans EC2's on all my 10,12,13,14,16 toms with all G1's on the bottom. They create a great low-end sound when tuned slightly lower than the top. Not good for a batter head because it has too many ovetones and dents too easily.

        Nice heads if you're into playing jazz. I added those Evans EMAD dampener thingy's to my toms as well, the combination of them with these heads sounds great, it gives a really warm feel.

        Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

        I use g1's on my Tama superstars, as reso heads, g2 coated on batter. No such thing as a better combo. Super deep, resonant, and VERY loud. These aren't good batter heads, unless you are playing jazz, funk, lighter stuff. But for resonants, they really bring the tone out.
