Default Evans G1 on DW Collectors

Anyone using Evans Coated G1s on DW Collectors series drums? I've got G2's on it right now (uncoated), but have some brush work coming up and would probably be best getting coated tom heads. I've got 10x9, 12x10, and 14x14 toms (maple/mahogany). Success or fail stories welcome!

I think you can see from my avatar that I don't play DW, but I play Evans. I have G1's on both of my Ludwig metal snares and I can assure you that you made an excellent decision. They are well made, they sound great, and the feel is perfect.

The one thing you might want to consider the next time you change heads, is to going to a Hazy 200 on your snare side if you are doing a lot of brush work. If it's a one-time thing, I would stick with the conventional stuff - like Hazy 300's or equal.

I play Evans G2 Coated on all my kits, DW and non but I personally prefer remo coated ambassadors on my snares, they seem to be a little brighter to me than the G1 coated.

Just my personal taste of course.

I preferred the G2 on my DW Collector's kit when I owned it. Toms sounded nice and fat with the G2s, if I was to get heads for the same kit now, I would get Aquarian Response 2 clears. The Aquarian heads are much warmer and fuller sounding than the G2s.

You would be successful with G1's.

I went with coated G1s. They're a little thin, but I have yet to fine-tune the drums.

I use single-ply heads on all of my drums. My 18" Gretsch Catalina bass drum still has a two-ply batter head, EQ3, but I am not going to trash a perfectly good head just because of a change in opinion. My other bass drum has a single-ply head, EMAD. Peace and goodwill.

I always use Remo 1 ply heads on all of my snare. Either coated ambassador, ambassadorX, or X14. Right now, I have Remo X14's on more than half of my drums... they are super durable, warm and fat tone, great pop! To me IMHO they are just right!

Heads are working out fairly well. They're a bit thin-sounding, but it may be the room the drums are in. I'm also tuning a 5th above the timbre note of the shell.
