Default Best Clear Drumhead?

I am looking to buy some clear tom heads for my Pearl ELX kit. What is the best one?

What kind of sound are you looking for, what do you play? Reading around on this site should give you some great ideas.

If you're looking for a really open and responsive sound and don't intend to beat the heck out of your drums, check out the Evans G1. If you want something with a bit more body and durability, the G Plus is a great option. If you're looking for enhanced attack and extra durability, the G2 (2-ply head) is solid. If you're looking to cut down on some of the overtones and get a sound that's closer to what you hear in many rock recordings, check out the EC2S.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'd be glad to help.

Cheers!

Black Dot Remo Controlled sound, they have a one ply ambassador weight head with a laminated 5 mil black dot that cancels unwanted over tones

I have EC2 over EC Resonant on my Export toms, and they sound very good, with good sustain. Good luck.

My cousin has the same kit and we tried G2 clears over G1 clears. Was not as warm and controlled sounding as he wanted for his studio so we went with EC2 coated on batters and it sounds amazing.
