I bought this head because I was ready to take the plunge and spend $300 on my kit to replace all the heads and I was very excited to try Evans. I bought a 13" coated G1 for my snare first. Single ply heads always work the best for my snare and I'd never heard my drum sound so good. But after two weeks the tone got really dull and by the third it cracked down the center. I've been playing and tuning my drums for 8+ years and I play off the head rather than through it. My only explanation, cruddy durability. If you have the money to replace heads often go with Evans for great sound, but if you're broke stick with Remo or try another drumhead manufacturer like Aquarian. They have some great stuff that actually lasts.

Good sound,but weird feel

By Djazzman-amK8c

from Montreal,QC

See all my reviews

Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

So I own this drumhead, and its sound good, but it has a weird feel if you compare that head to a remo coated ambassador.The feeling on the ambassaor is natural and you can roll all over the drumhead,but with the G1, you will have plastic sound if you roll all over the head.When you hit the drumhead in the middle it feels right.Anyway, it is a good drumhead for the snare.

    Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

    I was told a few years back that if you have cheap tom shells, use a double ply head (such as the G2 clear). If you have high end tom shells, use a good coated single ply head, such as the Evans G1 coated. After examining a number of drum sets, I am coming to the same conclusion. I was never fully happy with my tom drums (with G1 coated heads), but yesterday I came across a tuning that made them come alive. I used a drum dial indicator, and the top heads are now at 73 (on the loose side), and the bottom heads at 75. Wow, I finally have great sound. If the top heads are too tight (I had them set at 75), they sound tight with too much boing sound, but loosened up a bit, they are free to give resonant tone. I was about to put in an order for a set of G2 clears, but now I won't. I think the Evans G1 coated heads are the best I can come up with for my Jeff Kirsch custom drum set with 6 ply Keller VSS maple shells.

    Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

    I use these on pretty much every snare I have.They have a great open tone that is fuller and thicker than an Ambassador. I also use these on my toms, top and bottom.The tone is warm and meaty with just the right amount of sustain.On bass drum, they just roar. GrrrI highly recommend them.

          Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

          I play rock, and for live stuff I've always gravitated towards a two-ply head to get fat aggressive sounds, but I've seen a lot of info from pro recording engineers suggesting that the de facto set up in the studio is to use single-ply heads... I was skeptical but gave it a try, and the results were surprising... yes they sounded a little wimpier/rounder in the room, but tape playback came across with that classic rich/full/singing recorded tom sound that I've been chasing for years. I'm keeping 2-plys on my live/rehearsal kits, but for my recording set I think I'm going to run with these... the proof is in pudding!

              i purchased a ludwig piccolo that was equipped with one, & was one of BEST snare sounds i ever experienced.
              i know a LOT goes into partic sound (snare side head, head tensions, TYPE snare wires and THEIR tension, ?muffling?, etc), but didn't want to mess with "juju" of this drum!

                        I put the Evans G-1 on all my snares. It has a consistent, open sound, is easy to tune and is durable for moderate play (not for bashers). The response is great with sticks, beaters and brushes.

                              I'm not even the drummer, but I buy a 14" every so often to keep at my rehearsal space. I've only used these on a snare, but they seem to hold up fairly well and they sound really good. I think I like these better than the Remo heads I've used.

                                I've been experimenting with different heads and the one I noticed the most was the G1 coated batter for the resonant head on my 16" Tom. Well for some reason I tryed a G1 clear on the bottom of my 14" Tom and I can't get it to sound as good as the 16" Tom. So I've got a coated G1 coming(which is on my 16" Tom) and I'll see if it will give me that sound I'm looking for. I'm using Evens ES2 for my Batter head.

                                  The new level 360 products are remarkable. ease of tuning and range of tuning are becoming industry standard if they aren't already.
                                  I bought the evans hazy for the bottom snare bed and wow instant tune up of my high end snare drums.
                                  Miced up live its sounds awsome.
