Re: Evans Clear ECS SST or Genera 1 Coated?
Typically when someone asks me for a drumhead recommendation to really bring out the sound of the shells, I think clear single-ply heads immediately (like a clear G1). They'll have a sensitive response, open tone and plenty of sustain. That being said, you mentioned that you're looking to cut down on overtones. In progressive order of more overtone attenuation, I would recommend coated G1 batters, then coated G1 batters over EC resos, then coated G12 batters over EC Resos. This will still help to maintain the true tone of the drums while only subtly coloring the sound in the upper register.
