Awhile back i made some money, so i went to my local music shop and purchased the 12" 13" 14" 16" G2 heads.
I will say after replacing these heads the first thing i noticed was the sound! the sound is so deep and crisp! Evans made my Toms sing and my floor toms growl just like they said it would.

My "Pearl Maxwins" have had the same "Remo" heads on for 35 years, they sound way better than they have ever sounded, And the white coat on the heads LOOK AMAZING!
So happy with my purchase and i will purchase these again if these ever break!
Thank you EVANS! you have done it again!

-Also these heads are the easiest heads to tune!

I have g2 coateds on my toms and I've played on other sets with g2 clears. Once you get these tuned to where they don't sound bad they are OK heads. Much better coating and durability than any REMO I've seen. They sound great from the audience and recorded but they have a bad feel to them. Not much bounce on these things. They have a weird muffled attack, but that's their intention. I guess if you want a muffled head that really only sounds good played loud, then buy g2s. I just can't recommend these for jazz. I bet they sound better on bigger drums and certainly would make cheap kits sound better as they would eliminate the overtones. I recommend these over Pinstripes.

        Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

        By far I think it's my favorite Tom head. The G2 coated 2 ply Evans, white sits on a 13 inch Plywood "Enforcer" brand Tom with a 5 lug hoop. Though the inside of the Tom has been reconditioned and by the looks of this Tom drum is every bit of 10 years old. Grant it these plywood Toms and kit are pretty low standards: But hey take them out for some rough house play: What had you lost: the memories. Along with the Evans Resonate Glass head, this drum sounds just like the opening drum beats of the Rolling Stones hit "Paint it Black". Of course next to this 13 inch Plywood is a 12 in plywood Tom with the Evans Onyx. Which I think controls the smaller Toms' distinct trash can vibrations. The G2 head is probably your best bet for top notch gear to amplify this drums capabilities. Durable and sounds great, easy to tune, looks real good with it's bright white. As much as I am fascinated by the clear heads I have with a dampening ring, or the Remo CC Batter with outside black dot: I am going to order more G2.

              I'm still very new to the world of drumming, so I don't have much to compare these to other than the stock heads that came with my set, but in that regard I can say that I'm quite happy with these so far. Notable improvement in sound and much, much sturdier and robust.

                  Comments about G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

                  To me, these heads give a modern rendition of the famous Bonham tone. They are not nearly as ringy as vintage heads and have a little more bottom end and attack, but they certainly do make me reminisce about great 70's drum sounds. This is my first trial of these heads so I can't speak much on durability but they certainly do seem to holding up just fine in the first to weeks. I noticed I needed to tune these slightly higher than another brands clear heads I have been using and did not require much, if any sound dampening. If you're searching for sounds of early rock and roll but want heads with modern day manufacturing durability, easy tuning, low ring and a fuller frequency response, these may just be the head for you. The certainly have caught my attention.

                  I've tried a few different heads and always end up coming back to these. I tried the G1 clear, and they lasted about two sets before they were dented. The G2s are perfect for me. They are fairly easy to tune, and have a good balance of tone and durability.
