Deep sound, BOOOOM. Is the sound you will get from this head, you will not be disappointed.

Easy to tune, that is one of the great features of Evans heads. It is surprising how easy you can tune this head in minutes without hassle.

I have a Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage Noveau which is gorgeous in every way. This head that I bought compliments the floor tom I got it for.

Thank you Evans!

My tom drums have Keller VSS 6 ply maple shells with the bearing edges custom formed by Portland custom drum maker Jeff Kirsch (awesome quality!) To my memory, he had recommended Evans G1 coated heads, which I have had on my toms for a long time. I thought I could improve the tone with the G2 clear, but I am disappointed almost beyond words. A single thickness head can resonate, but a dual thickness head appears to give a thud, but not much tone. I tried a looser tuning and then a medium tuning. Both were unacceptable to my ear. I re-installed the G1 coated, and I am content with that sound. (Hint: with a drum dial tuner, the G1 sounds good with a tension of 71 on the batter, and 73 on the resonant heads. Try tighter if you want more boing and less Indian tom sound.)
If you buy these, try just one at first, like I did. At least that limited how much money I was wasting.

      Comments about Evans G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

      Believe folks I have tried just about every head out there on my kits, including Remo, Aquarian and Evans and finally landed on the G2 batters over the Resonant Glass heads on my 74 Rogers Holiday kit. I tend to tune a bit low for that thick, attack filled thud and these have been the best at getting this sound. I admit that they are very close in tone to the clear emperors which I like a lot also but there was just something extra that I got from the G2 clear batters that I didn't get with any other heads out there. I also tried the coated G2 batters and didn't like them as much. They didn't have as much life as the clears. If you have an older kit that is finicky to tune and are looking for something to maybe end your tom head search then give these a try. I mainly tune by ear, but as a reference try tunebot or idrumtech numbers of 146 over 174 for a 12x8 tom and about 103 over 110 for a 16x16 floor tom. Since I landed on these heads and these approximate tunings, I now play more than I experiment or tune! Give it a try!

              See all my reviews

              Comments about Evans G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

              I used to swear by Coated G2's but I've recently decided that I prefer the sound produced by clear drum heads on toms. I've tried Remo Pinstripes, but as with everything Remo I didn't like them at all.For studio work/general drumming I think these are the best drumheads you can use, assuming you can tune right in the first place. When playing live I usually have to muffle them a little bit with some moongel, but leaving them open and resonant for recording works very well.I usually replace my drumheads on my main set (a ddrum dominion maple) every year, but whatever was on before gets moved to one of my practice kits, and they usually last a long time.

                Comments about Evans G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

                I like the tone that the Evans product creates. I change my heads often to maintain that attack I want out of the drum. The tone of the heads seem to fall out quicker thus I change more often. I can't get that sound I want out of the Remo head material that I can out of the Evans material. Not sure why there is a difference but Evans products work for me.

                If your looking for the best all around drumhead these are the way to go hands down! I put brand new coated g2s on just before these and hated them.! Terrible stick response, projection, and overall feel. Swapped them out for these clear g2's and walaa! The golden ticket to a perfect tom tone!!!

                    Comments about Evans G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

                    Use these heads on all my drums. I play shows 3 and 4 nights a week. They have great tone and last longer than other heads.
