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.

I keep coming back to these. Great heads!

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

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.

          Just getting the new track space set up with a house drum kit, and I wanted to start off with great heads. Been using the Genera G2 on toms for 15 years now. Sound great and take a beating. MF had the best price online, as usual!

            Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

            I've been playing for almost 5 years (January will be 5), and I've only learned about so much OTHER things you can do to your drums to make them sound good. I starting learning about this OTHER stuff around the beginning of summer. I wanted something more than just to tune them to make them sound great. So I found out how to deal with tonal quality, regardless of how good you can tune. Evans drumheads is something I found out recently (along with also replacing the drumheads, which I thought was impossible), because my favorite drummer uses them, and a great drum kit. But I can't afford DW quality or Sabian cymbals, yet. So I bought this because I needed a new snare drum head. I have to tell you, EVANS DRUMHEADS ARE AMAZING!!! The Evans G2 was awesome for my snare drum. It hade a great crack to it, but also at the same time, a lot of tone. I play a basswood set, but man, I will NOT stop buying these. G2's go great on toms, too. I would recommend this to ANYONE looking for a new drum head. End of story, Evans are AMAZING!!! (P.S. I will EVANtually add a picture)

                  Nice head, very versatile. I bought this because I wanted a coated head that was less bright than a G1, and the G2 does not disappoint. The coating produces a fantastic swish with brushes.

                    Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

                    Let me first start off by saying that I also have black chrome heads which are super durable and sound great.. Probably the most durable head on the Evans market for toms but as much as I love the black chromes I still wanted to experiment with other heads. I got these coated G2s and they are wonderful. The sound, feel and look is everything I would want in a drum head. They are very durable so if you're looking for a head that has a nice medium between tone and durability then you should pick a pair of these heads up. I have the 12 and 16inch. These G2s are like a black chrome with slightly less durability and slightly more tone.
