      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:

        These are the best heads hands down. The only reason that the heads dent is because I play many gigs (up to 2 a week) and I play very forcefully. They sound good even with the dents!

                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!

                  To the drummer stating that one must tune a 2 ply batter head tighter than a one ply batter head. That is not always true. A lot of factors will come into play. Example. Shell ply thickness, shell depth.Shell material and the angle of bearing edge degree to name a few. My drums are Pearl masters Birch Studio. I have used nearly every head type available to us and I can assure you this. Nearly every head type will give your kit a different voice. I would like to suggest that you take your visual tuning device and place it in a drawer and try listening with your ears to tune and not your eyes. Also don't be timid on tuning these heads low. Just get them tight and apply a little pressure with the palm of your hand to the middle of each drum.Do this to your bottom heads too. This will lower the pitch a little. Then try re-tuning the drums up ever so slightly. I believe you will be happy with the end result. Good luck and happy drumming

                  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 G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

                  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!
