    Comments about Evans G12 Coated White Batter Drumhead:

    Evans makes a wide variety of heads in pretty much any size applicable. I've been playing drums 18+ years and Evans is by far the best sounding, highest quality, and most durable heads I've ever used.

    The G12 series is great for a warm, rich tone with a quick decay. They can be tuned low, mid, or high but I find they sound best with a mid-range tuning along with a maple shell. Fantastic drum head.

    Lousy on my DW snare

    Comments about Evans G12 Coated White Batter Drumhead:

    Tried this G12 coated for the first time. Put it on my 8x14 DW maple HVX series snare. Sound: It wouldn't go even close to low-pitched. It had one sound, a high-pitched, loud pop no matter how it was tuned. Only difference was just how high do you want it. Feel: The feel was like it was tight and too firm no matter how it was tuned. The only difference was how rock-hard a feel do you want. Tightened moderately tight it made my monster deep snare sound like a piccolo ... not kidding. Been playing 51 years and had l-o-t-s of snares and head varieties. I put a 7 mil dot on the bottom and it sounds great low and very bad tuned-up. But I got the sound I wanted that way ... basically turned it into a Controlled Sound X, with a thicker dot, that won't have the coating chip off like the Remo version.

      Comments about Evans G12 Coated White Batter Drumhead:

      I've used Remos my whole life, but tried Evans heads for the first time last Feb when I treated myself to a new drum kit. Evans is all I'll consider now.

      The Level 360 technology really makes a huge difference. With Remos or Aquarians (which sound great too), I always have a wrinkled area by a lug, and tuning takes a long time. The Evans are simple: 1) Seat, 2) finger tighten and (for toms) 3) turn each lug half a turn beyond finger tight - the drum is in perfect tune with itself; 4) tweak up to suit.

      The coating on these heads is something else. The Remo coatings wear through and you have a clear spot in the head within a couple of weeks. I play these drums with the G12s nearly every day, and have had the heads on for seven months. Though there is a dirty spot in the center of them, all of the coating remains intact.

      The G12 is 12 mils thick as opposed to the G1, which is 10 mils thick. This slightly lowers the fundamental tone, but still gives the characteristics of a thin, single ply head. These heads sound low, full (they have great sustain - I've got Gauger RIMS on the mounted, and isolation feet on the floor, not muffling to get the most out of the sustain), warm, and "round" with just the right amount of attack for smaller venues.

      One thing I've learned over the years is that the heads used must be determined in large part by the sticks used. These heads require light sticks. 7As are about the upper limit for them, with Vic Firth 5AJs and Regal Tip Combos making them sound really sweet. If you use a 5A or larger you probably want to look at the G2s. If you use something with a "B" in it, you probably want to look at the Evans EC2s.

      Over the years, I have come to realize that you can overdrive a head with too-heavy-a-stick, much as you can overdrive a woofer with too-powerful-an-amp.

      If you need to keep the volume under control, and you use or are willing to switch to light sticks, these heads will make your drums sound amazing when you tune 'em to the sweet spot. The head/stick combo works for everything from Steely Dan to Dixieland, to Deep Purple (played at a volume that leaves your hearing intact).
