Default Evans heads on Yamaha SCA

Hey everyone...
I need your help again.
What would you recommend more on a Yamaha Stage Custom?

Evans G2 over G1
or
Evans EC2 over G1

and coated or clear?

I'm looking for a warm focused and full sound on my toms. Low enough resonance without O-Rings that it doesn't go BONG.......GGGGGGG.
Thanks guys
Cel

I don't have a Stage Custom but I do have a Recording Custom (different shell material I think, I don't know much about SC) and I currently have G2's on the batter side and have a tab of Moongel on my 12, 13 and 14" toms. My 16" doesn't need the Moongel, it sounds awesome. I plan to try the EC2's on my new toms when they arrive next month but I will definitely have a pack of Moongel on standby in case. If they don't sound like what I want I will sell them on Ebay and change back to G2's over G1's.

I dont know about the Stage Customs, but i have had EC2's and they are an awesome head. They are best if you like your toms tuned low. Mine always gave a deep loud sound
with no overtones. And definately no 'BONG.......GGGGGGG.'

Get the clear version becaus i think coated would be too muffled and go for g1 resos because they give just enough sustain and are easy to tune.

I will get the same heads for my new m birch when i change them.

good luck with your SCA's

I have a stage custom adv. and have tried the clear g2's, coated g2's, clear ec2's and coated ec2 batters. The best combo I found was the coated g2 batter and g1 reso's. They allow for a wider tuning range than the Ec2's (which sounded good when tuned real low) but for versatility I'd go with coated g2's. very warm natural sound with these heads.

Yes, coated G2's over G1 or Resonant Glass. G1 for a more 'open' sustain or the Glass for a more 'focused' sound.

on my yamaha Maple custom absolute, I run coated g1 over clear g1. recently i tried a coated g2 over a clear g1 on my 16" tom and it absolutely rumbles, I love it. I'll probably get a set of g2's for the rest of the toms.

From what I hear i'll probably look at Coated G2s over Clear G1s...upgrading to Coated G2s immediately and upgrading to Clear G1s after a month or two. Unfortunately then I'll have to keep the stock head for a bit...but hopefully it won't be so bad that I can't bear it for more than a month.

Hm thanks guys, one other thing,
What's the Aquarian equivalent of the Evans Coated G2? Looking at the same warm focused sound.
Thanks
Cel
