Default Re: Heads for Legacy Classics?

It depends on what era the Legacies are from. The first incarnation (mid-2007 I believe?) had very shallow edges, and 2-ply heads weren't the best choice on those. But by 2011 or so, they had changed the edge to a friendlier, more desirable 1/8" roundover with a classic, steeper bevel. Those newer edges like just about any head, although I'd avoid extra heavy heads, they'll be a little dull.

I've got Evans Strata 1000 on my Legacy toms, and they speak nicely with a classic '60s vibe. I'd think a coated G2 would make them a little more '70s, which is when the last time that edge was prevalent on Ludwigs (c1969-76.)
