Default Evans G1 for snare side?

Hi guys,
I'm new to the forum. I just wanted to know if an Evans g1 can be used on the resonant side of a snare? I know that on the evans website they say that it can be used on tom as a resonant, but it doesn't say anything about snares. If so I have a Premier Modern Classic 13x7 Maple snare, and was just wondering how you think that may sound?

Thanks a lot!

No, those are not meant for the bottom of a snare.

The G1's work fine as tom resonants, however snare resonant heads usually are a lot thinner (3 or 5 mil) while batter heads/tom resonants usually are 10 mil and up.

Ah right. I asked the guy in the shop for an appropriate resonant head and he gave me that. That explains why it sounds so unresponsive. Thanks!

Yes, change where you shop for drum gear. Peace and goodwill.

Did you specify to the dude snare reso? Or did you just say reso. Either way, it's too thick. I tried a 5 mil snare reso and even that is too heavy for me.
