These heads sound great on my kit, but the "coating" comes off easily and marks up my cymbals -- especially my ride. Heads are sticking and coating is removable by just scratching.
Nice sounding heads, easy to tune, just coating failed on me.

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.

        Using drum head on my practice kit. I normally beat this kit harder than my gig set, so i needed a durable head that still gave me quality sound. Thats why I purchased evans drum heads. Can't beat the quality for the price!

            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.
