I use G-1s on all batter heads. The only complaint is that the "crispy" coating wore off rather quickly (2.5 months) but it is still white. It doesn't have that crisp brush sound it used to. I am looking into an aquarian modern vintage.
All of my reso's are also g1s, clear, including the bass drum. Had to mess with this bass drum combo a little but I think it sounds pretty good now.
