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:

    I like the tone that the Evans product creates. I change my heads often to maintain that attack I want out of the drum. The tone of the heads seem to fall out quicker thus I change more often. I can't get that sound I want out of the Remo head material that I can out of the Evans material. Not sure why there is a difference but Evans products work for me.

      Comments about Evans G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

      I use this head on my gigging drum kit. It looks good, sounds very good and is easy to tune. I used to use a competitor's brand for my toms, but the Evans 360 clear is a better choice for me.

        My 2012 Gretsch Renown came outfitted with these heads from the factory. I like the way they sound on that kit so much, I decided to try them on my Taye Birch kit....

          Love these heads. Work great with the Evans Ec Resonant! Dries it up a bit but still very open and resonant.

              Comments about Evans G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

              If your looking for the best all around drumhead these are the way to go hands down! I put brand new coated g2s on just before these and hated them.! Terrible stick response, projection, and overall feel. Swapped them out for these clear g2's and walaa! The golden ticket to a perfect tom tone!!!

                  Comments about Evans G2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

                  I try to experiment with different drum heads. I want to find drumheads that are durable, fairly inexpensive, and sound great! I wanna help you with the same so here's my review.

                  This was my first time getting the G2s. When I first put them on I was amazed because they really sounded great. I also forgot to mention earlier, I am a harder hitting drummer so that's why I seek durability in a drumhead. Anyways, after about 3 weeks of using them now I'm starting to notice a lot of pitting, which upsets me a bit because I really enjoy these heads. This is of course a problem because I don't have the extra money laying around to replace these heads often.

                  My overall review. They are worth a try. They sound really great and if you don't hit that hard they will probably last you quite a while. I still recommend the Remo Pinstripes over these, if you like a head like this, just because the Pinstripes are a lot more durable and sound really good.

                      I bought some G2s for my Ludwig kit I was looking for a deeper power sound and I was amazed how good the sound was compared to my single ply coated heads. ive been using them for about 3 months now every weekend and still sounds great.
