Default G1 Clears - Batter heads on toms?

I ordered a 10" G1 head to try on my BRX. I've heard pleasant things about them being resos but not many people like to use them for batter heads. Is there a reason why?

They do see quite a bit of use a batters, though people tend to consider them a safe, simple go-to head for tom resos. Can't go wrong with G1 clear resos. If you find that you want to get a bit more durability, try out the G Plus and G14 heads (both also single-ply but in 12mil and 14mil, respectively).

Cheers!

Well, if you think of them as clear Clear Remo Ambassadors, the. You can use them as batters. People have been using them for years as batters.

I just read reviews and find that people (on musicians friend in general) hate them for batter side but love them for reso side.

Regardless I just went ahead swapped out my used 10" EC2 and put on the G1. Definitely a different sound. I like the EC2 better but that's because of the stick attack. However, I like the openness of the G1 - sounds like a hollow "DOOoo!". So perhaps a G2 or Emperor would be a good middle ground.

For fun I posted a video on You Tube. Search for EC2 vs G1, you'll find it.
