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

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.

    Evans G1 coated is now an industry standard they way Remo coated Ambassador heads used to be. They holdup better and don't lose their coating. Also great value here on Musiciams Friend. I buy them in bulk!
