      I admit I resisted using Evans again. I've used them before with OK results. But I ended up trying Level 360 clear G2s as tom batters and clear Level 360 G1s as resos. Immediate improvement. The drums came to life like never before. The toms tuned up quickly and easily. I also have a power center reverse dot on the snare and a clear GMAD on the kick. I've finally found my sound!

        Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

        I originally purchased this drumhead as a replacement for my 10" tom. I quickly found out it was not at all what I expected. It is an Evans drumhead, so it is easy to tune, it is single ply, which makes for more resonance, and it was clear, which explains the attack, and it is very durable. I would prefer G2 Clears for the kind of music I play, but these make some wicked resonant head. They are also great backup heads, because they are more affordable than the standard G2's. In the end, not a bad first tom drum head. (P.S. I'll upload an image soon)

        Use as a Resonant!

        By 

        from Rochester, NY

        Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

        This drumhead should be classified as a resonant head only, not a batter. If used as a batter, it has an extremely weak, ringy sound that wouldnt be too far off from the stock head you're taking off that came from the factory. Instead, if used as a resonant head, it has incredible tone, and a fantastic low end. I paired it with my G2 coated heads and it sounds like an absolute dream. I recently turned a side snare into a rack tom, and with the help of the G2 coated as the batter and G1 as the reso, it sings like any other tom in its size. Two thumbs way way up for Evans!

        When I put these heads on my kit as batters they made my drums sound very hollow and they got a weird ring but when I put them on as resos with Remo Pinstripes as the batters the sound was amazing. So batter=horrible, Reso=Great

        Evans G1 clear batter head

        By 

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

        I have used this head on my friend's old Pearl 4-peice drum set, with a 12" and a 16" tom. The toms had a lot of overtone but he had some Evans e-rings on the toms and on the snare, and the rings really helped the overtones. But even with the rings, I still didnt quite like the sound. They made the drums sound hollow, and echo-ish, and had a strange, faint ringing that made the entire set sound weird. I highly recomend the Evans G2 coated batter head, you wont be disapointed with that one. But this one is unpredictable. I dont recomend getting these.

        By 

        from San Mateo CA

        Comments about Evans G1 Clear Batter Drumhead:

        I use g1's on my Tama superstars, as reso heads, g2 coated on batter. No such thing as a better combo. Super deep, resonant, and VERY loud. These aren't good batter heads, unless you are playing jazz, funk, lighter stuff. But for resonants, they really bring the tone out.
