      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:

          The Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead: One of the best drum heads I've ever heard. I own a double bass kit made from 2 basic drum kits, with factory heads. They sounded OK, when tuned correctly, but this drum head makes the Snare Drum sound AMAZING! The friends I have that have or has had drum kits, their Snare Drum sounded great, but with this head, my Snare blew their's out of the water. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new drum head for a fair price, and this does not disappoint. This is the first Evans drum head I have purchased, and will certainly not be the last. Evans drum heads have completely blew my mind!

            Great, well-rounded (no pun intended) sound from these heads. Warm tones that resonate beautifully. Great attack as well as subtle nuances. Purchased the 8,10,12,14,16 and wow... I am impressed.

            Don't let the inexpensive price fool you, these are top-quality drumheads for a variety of styles and genres.

            You will not be disappointed!

              The Evans G2 coated batter head sounds clean and clear with my kit with a focused sound. I used a competitors heads and I am glad that I switched. These heads paired with the G1 resonance heads for my 10", 12" and 14" toms make the kit sing!

                    Purchased this to replace a clear Remo Emporer on a newly aquired AHA Custom 15" floor tom. The rest of the kit was set-up with Evans coated G2 Level 360's, but the previous owner could not locate a 15" match locally. Thank you Musician's Friend for stocking this head in this size. While the clear Emporer is a great head, the Evans G2 proved to be warmer, easier to tune, and gave the floor tom a noticeably bigger sound.

                      I have tried a couple of different heads for my toms, and these are with out a doubt the best I've used. They tune real quick, and they get the sound I want easily. They are also very durable and I don't have to replace my head as often. Overall, the best heads I've used for my toms.

                        I had Edge Controls on my kit and they sound bad. Never could get a good sound. Put these G2 heads on and in about two minutes they sounded fantastic. They just work. I almost gave up on Evans, glad I didn't.

                                Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

                                These are really amazing sounding heads, and reasonable to tune.I tried these for the first time on my Tama Starclassic birch kit and it changed the tom and floor toms dramatically,for the better.They even sound good playing very soft.
                                i was using EC2 Clear, and they to are an excellent head,but work better for harder rock. The G2 Coated give a great all around sound,with a super warm tone. Try Them!
