Default Re: G2 Coated or G2 Clear

anyways after some research i'm fairly sure i want to get Evans Genera HD resonant heads.

and originally i wanted to get G2 clear's but now i'm having doubts, should i get Coated G2's?

what are the main differences in the sound? (in laymen's terms please seeing as I have no experience with tuning drums at all)

idk if it helps but I like a lot of alternative rock from like pop punk to borderline screamo (i don't like the scream lol) bands like tonight alive, paramore, 30 seconds to mars, daughtry, saosin, sleeping with sirens, ventura lights, and stuff like that.

thanks so much for the help, you guys rock!!!
I'd agree with Alparrott, clears are definitely the way to go. You might consider going with EC2S clears in order to get a little bit of control on the higher frequencies (especially if you don't have as much experience with tuning- though the Level 360 collar should help).

In regards to resos, watch out for the item names- I think you're referring to Genera Resos (10mil single-ply). The Genera HD is actually a 2-ply snare batter head.

Carlock did. Anton Fig did. Kenny Aronoff did. Join the revolution! Evans Level 360.
