Re: Don't like the Evans G2, any other recommendations?
It might be your tuning but I kinda know what you mean. I just fitted a g2 to my 14x14 and an aquarian response 2 to my 14x12 and they definitely rang out more and played lower notes with coated heads. And I know that I tuned the 14x14 the same as I was using a drum dial. Try a coated ambassador or g1 and let us know how you go.
I agree with Dre25
