Default Is this a good head combination?

I'm planning on making a purchase and am wondering if this is a good head combo-

10" tom- coated g2 over clear g1
16" tom- coated g14 over clear g1

Btw. My kit's maple

I'm looking for nice sustain on all and low tuning capabilities for the floor Tom. Thanks

The answer is yes. They're both pretty well-known and tried head combos.

I personally like the more open tone of a one-ply head on 10" toms, so I might suggest a G-Plus instead of the G2.

The EC Reso is a really nice bottom head, and all other things being equal helps tune to a lower pitch.

Yeah, 2-ply heads tend to have less sustain than single-ply heads. And small drums tend to have faster decay than large drums. I might try the G14 on the 10 and the G10 on the 16.

I am not familiar with the G10. Did you mean something else?

Thanks for all your answers guys. I have decided to go all 1 ply and related to that, would the G plus work better for the high tom or would the G14 work the same/better?

I'd say go with a G1 or GPlus on the 10"... Too much thickness on small drums makes them sound boxy.

Oh ok. I think I'll go with the G plus.
