    Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

    Great as a snare hear. Sounds very similar to a Remo Ambassador. Great sound! Would be 5 stars but if you have nice, bright, shiny cymbals do not buy these... The coating comes off and leaves marks on the cymbals.. If you don't have great cymbals go ahead and buy; nice head and sounds great! But if you have very nice cymbals you should probably stick to the Ambassadors or something else... I have used 4 and all have had this same problem with the marks on cymbals

      Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

      Great sounding snare! Sounds very similar to a demo ambassador! Great range with tuning from high's to low's. I use these on my snare head's and they're great heads! The only thing is the coating. If you have super nice, shiny cymbals I would recommend using the clear G1's. The coating comes off easily and leaves marks on your sticks, transferring them to the cymbal and leaving marks on the cymbal. Great head, but I would recommend the clear if you have nice cymbals.

      Versatile Head with Multiple Hoops

      By CHRISTOPHER VICKERS

      from Memphis, TN

      Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

      I'm a pretty devoted Remo guy, but I bought half a dozen of the Evans just because they were on sale (the intention being of putting them on snares I don't really use anymore). However, after putting them on the first drum, I put them on others as well. From drum-to-drum, they sounded consistent and fantastic. The drums were: 5.5" Yamaha Manu Katche (die-cast hoops), 7" OCDP Hybrid (triple-flanged hoops), and an 8" Yamaha Recording Custom (with Yamaha wood hoops). I give those details for this reason: Oftentimes, the fit of the wood hoops aren't as snug as those of metal hoops, but the new 360 design really worked on that particular drum, and it's never sounded better. As such, I'm curious to try these heads out on my toms with an expectation of a good sound.

      perfect sound...for me

      By unseenme

      from South

      Comments about Evans G1 Coated Batter Drum Head:

      i had been looking for a particular sound for my snare (the near garbage can sound, i.e. korn's debut cd; nickelback's silver side up cd) but to no avail. FINALLY i found it in the G1 head. my snare is a peace 14x5.5 metal snare and everything seemed to have too much snare pop to it. this head creates overtones on the outer edge that aren't too overbearing, yet blend in perfectly with the snare pop to give me exactly what i'm looking for with no dampening ring needed. i also have this head on my 10" tom and it gives me the warmth and tight pop i'm looking for. i have G2's on my 12 and 14 toms with dampening rings and i love them as well. in my opinion, evans makes the best heads, at least for the sound i'm looking for.
