I have used evans G2 coated for 8 years. They have a consistency from head to head. It takes about 3 months of daily playing for me to replace them only because of the coating wearing down. I usually use these heads for live bebop and big band jazz. These heads have a brighter tone than normal coated heads. So, if you are used to the coated REMO Ambassador heads, the Evans G2 coated will have a brighter tone.

Best head, period.

By Jake Burchard

from Boston

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

By far the best head I've used, especially for snares. It gave my snare that fat, wet sound while still giving it lots of "crack!" I have a Gretsch Catalina maple snare and combined with these Evans g2 coateds and Evans O rings my snare sounds godly! I put these on all my toms too to give them a nice warm and deep sound. If you seat and tune these right they'll last you a long time without degrading in quality too much. Recommend to anyone!

Evans G2 Coated

By implosionofeternity

from California

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

I bought these a couple of weeks ago, and they sound great. They are pretty easy to tune, and they are very durable. They made my drums sound brighter, with just the right amount of resonance. I highly recommend these heads.

One word says it all....fantastic

By Visiondrum

from Michigan

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

I've been using these heads for about 4 years now and I can honestly say they are fantastic. Playing for 17 years, I've pretty much tried them all and I'm 100% sold with Evans. Great punch to cut through the mix and a nice rich tone underneath. They also have quite a wide tuning range so you're not stuck with one tone like with some other heads, durability is never an issue. These things can take it all and aask for more.

The best heads I've found!

By The Prospector

from Peoria, AZ

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

After trying many different heads on a test tom-tom in the store, I found the G2 coated on top and the G1 clear on the bottom tuned with the dial make the toms sound like thunder with pure musical tone. I put some on one of my cheapest drum kits, an old ludwig kit with pressboard shells(!) and the heads even made those sound good! That's the sign of a good head.

Gr-r-r-r-r-eat Heads

By Mississippi Kid

from Gibsonburg, OH.

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

Are you tired of having to replace heads all the time. Get these heads on your drums and solve the problem. They're sturdy, durable, can take all those heavy licks, great sound and no, the coating doesn't wear off like some snare heads. You will be very pleased with Evans G2 coated heads.

can't get any better than this

By The Prestige Drummer

from New York

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

this is one of the best drum heads that you can put on a tom. I purchased this yesterday and just by putting it on and finger tightening it it made my 12'' rack tom sound great. I highly recommend this drum head to anyone who wants to make their toms sound good.

great head for a great price!

By Georgios

from Tarpon Springs

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

These are great heads. They are pretty easy to tune, depending on your drums. i use these heads for a Yamaha kit in my marching band, and they sound great! I have clear G2 resonants, and they have a great tone. Depending on your tuning abilities, these heads can have a really bright attack, or a warm, fat tone. I use moon gels, and i get a great warm feel with these heads. I would recommend these heads to anybody. [Definetely better than Remo Pinstripes!] I also tune drums and help people with their kits, and a lot of people have swapped their heads for these G2s. Awesome heads.

Awesome

By Chris

from Pueblo, Colorado

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

These heads are byfar the sweetest ones I've used. While I've never used them on every kit, I have on Poplar, Oak, Birch, and Maple kits, and I must say, on the poplar toms, they were the most bone crushing things I've heard to this day. I've had the same heads for the past year, and they are still in excellent condition, though I don't play ever minute of every hour every day. I would recomend these heads to anyone seeking some bone crushing lows and clean, resonant mids and highs. Keep rockin!

AWESOME HEADS!

By Jason

from Concord CA

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

BEST HEADS EVER! I used to use Emperor coated but I would have to fight with the head so I could get a good sound out of my toms. Now I use the Evans G2 Coated and they sound great! Tuning is quick and effortless.

Surprised and happy

By Robert Pesa

from Norton, MA

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

I took a risk and bought coated G2 heads for my Yamaha Stage Custom toms (10/12/16). Previous heads were the Evans clear EC2's, but I wanted to try for the warmth of coated heads. I was worried that the drums would be ringy without the EC2 built-in muffling, but couldn't have been more wrong. They tuned up instantly (bottom heads tuned a little higher to get the "bwow"), and the warmth is definitely there, also don't have to hit as hard to get a clean tone. Great choice.

Perfect tom heads

By Jesse

from Las Vegas

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

These are simply awesome drum heads, especially for your toms. I love the durability because of the 2-ply coated construction, which also gives the drum a powerful, deep, warm attack. I have e-rings placed on all my toms which cuts off much of the sustain, but the heads still ring out. With obvious tuning, you won't be disappointed.

AWESOME HEADS

By Jacob

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

I have been looking to buy news heads for about one week. After reading numerous reviews for other heads like Remo Ambassador and Emporer coated, and the Evans ec2, I decided to go with the Evans G2 coated. I am completely happy with my choice. These drum heads have a medium attack and are very warm and fat sounding. They tend to have a little more resonance than I prefer so I use Aquarian dampening rings and they sound great. I highly recommend these heads.

Love em

By Mike

from Georgetown, KY

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

I absolutely love these heads. Durable with a deep, warm, controlled tone. Just like the ad says, makes smaller toms sing and large toms growl. Sound great live with or without mics and sound great recording. I like them so much not only do I use them on my kit but had the church outfit their drums with em. Great job Evans.

the BEST heads ... hands down

By Joseph Tucker

from gulf breeze FL

Comments about Evans G2 Coated Batter Drumhead:

i was a Remo player for over 20 years . the last 10 i have switched to Evans due to a particular store being out of the heads i used and it was suggested i give em a try or they would take em back (hows that for confidence) and have never gone back. Each and every head is consistent in quality and easy to tune and stays in tune .... at least for me. My son also plays nothing but Evans cos I started him right ,
