Default Evans G2/Genera

Am i correct or being dim in asking if the Genera G2 i've seen pictures of are the same G2's that people speak of?

It may seem silly but i wanted to clear that up before i got confused and ended up buying the wrong head. The G2 is a shortened version of the name Genera G2?

xoxo

Hi PeniScott,

According to the Evans website the Genera series drum heads come in a few different versions as snare drum batters.

Genera = Single ply with overtone control ring.
Genera Dry = Single ply with overtone control ring and small vent holes around the perimeter.

Genera HD = Two ply with overtone control ring.
Genera HD Dry = Two ply with overtone control ring and small vent holes around the perimeter.

The G2 that most refer to is a different two ply head that is mainly used as a tom batter.
The "G" might have referred to "Genera" at some point in time, but I'm not really sure about that.

I hope that this helps. :)

I recently bought a G2 for my snare and on the website I bought it from they had it listed as Genera G2 but the head I got just said G2 on it so as far as I know they are the same head.

Thanks for the info guys! So basically, the G2 and Genera are essentially the same head?

thanks

Directly out of the Evans product catalog, "Genera G1" or "Genera G2". There is also a "Genera Resonant" head. The Genera G1 clear is one of the most used resonant heads in the Evans line.
