A G1 is a G1, no matter which side of the drum you put it on.

All heads are created equal as far as batter and reso are concerned. The only exception is the snare side reso which is solely dedicated for this purpose.

I recently bought a clear Genera Resonate head. It is advertised as having a bright tone.
I compared it to a clear G1 and it is a bit brighter.
They are both 10 mil heads and somehow there is a difference in the sound.
If you want a different sound I suggest that you try the Genera Reso.
I put it on the bottom of my 8x10 rack tom with a Gl coated on top and I love it.

Many drummers use G2 over G1 on toms. I have done it in the past. My Gretsch toms now have G2 on top and Remo Ambassador on bottom, which is very close to a G1. Good luck on getting your sound.
