        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.

        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.

          Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drumhead:

          I've been experimenting with different heads and the one I noticed the most was the G1 coated batter for the resonant head on my 16" Tom. Well for some reason I tryed a G1 clear on the bottom of my 14" Tom and I can't get it to sound as good as the 16" Tom. So I've got a coated G1 coming(which is on my 16" Tom) and I'll see if it will give me that sound I'm looking for. I'm using Evens ES2 for my Batter head.

              I enjoy playing drums but I am not very good. I my husband and I run PA hire and he is also a musician (bass player) and we have a studio at our house. My drums are always set up ready for the bands rehearsal so I didn't want to spend too much money on replacing heads. These were a great deal and they work well. The coating does come away but it takes a while and they sound good - no complaints

              I only buy Evans heads but I usually get 2 ply heads for everything because I play heavy music. But this head greatly improved the sound of my 4" x 12" maple piccolo snare.

                my 14" Yamaha Touring maple tom had too much "boing" and ring with the ebony pinstripes so switching to the coated G1 Level 360 took it away. Now it sounds like a great 14" tom istead of an out of control tom!

                These heads sound great on my kit, but the "coating" comes off easily and marks up my cymbals -- especially my ride. Heads are sticking and coating is removable by just scratching.
                Nice sounding heads, easy to tune, just coating failed on me.

                  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.

                  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.
