Default Best Evans Heads Combo?

Hey guys,
wondering about which combos sound the best.
I bought some ec2 coated and g1 resonants.
anybody know if these sound decent together?
and if there are any other combos that sound good too.

This combo is what i have on my Gretsch New Classics right now. Sounds good but the coated G2 over clear G1 is what I prefer.

yeah, the g2 coated over the g1s are quite popular, or so i have been told.
i think I'll try these out and then next time try the g2s out.
thanks for the input.

I have EC2 Clear over G1 Clear on my Mapex Pro M...great but a little too thick sounding for me. My Gretsch Catalina Rock has g2 coated/g1 coated and sounds fine although the g2s are pretty bright...I'm just going to stay with G1 Coateds in the future or try the Strata 1000

I have clear EC2's over G1's, It's good, but I'm going to switch it up for coated G2's next time. I almost feel like the drum can't keep up with the head, I think the head would do much better on a high end kit, while coated would do better on mine. What kit do you have?

How does the VBX sound, what's the price range and do they come without a tom rack on the bass drum?

It looks amazing, in the concord fade with black hardware.
vbx sounds really nice too, if u like birch of course.
I payed just for the shells, since I got different hardware then what came with it.
It was $700.
It is usually $899 with hardware.
idk about the rack.

That's a great combination. I'm running those heads on a DW and a Yamaha kit and they both sound great. The G2s are very durable so you'll get a good life span out of them.

Let us know how it works out for you.

ok. I will. Thanks for the info.
One question for you.
The store that I went to didn't have any clear g1s for the resonant.
So, is it ok to use the regular clear genera resonants?

The Genera reso heads will be fine. They produce a slightly brighter tone than the G1s.The sustain will be about the same. I had good results with them.

Hope that helps.

I just put EC2 Coateds over G1 clears on my Starclassic Maple and I love it. The G2 clears that it came with were fine, but I've always preferred a coated head.
