Default Evans EC2S head users..

Im looking for some new heads for my toms. I've had Remo Emperors on them and am thinking of trying something new. I watched a video where Bob Gatzen plays with some on his kit and they sound pretty good.

What is the difference between the clear and frosted versions?

Can anyone recommend redo heads for the EC2S as well?I was thinking about using clear G1's under them

I have the Clear EC2 SST with Aquarian Classic Clears on the reso side - essentially their version of a G1. Go for it.

I haven't tried the coated (or frosted) EC2s so I can't comment on them. Sorry.

I tried the frosted EC2 back in the metal ring days and I didn't love it. To me they sound a little more papery than I'd expect them to, but without a "normal" coated version to compare it to, I don't know if it's the translucent coating or something else.

That said, I had a snare that absolutely loved the frosted EC2, but on toms it wasn't for me.

I'd also recommend a plain old 10-mil single ply as a reso. I've tried an EC Reso under an EC2 and it's way too clean sounding for my taste.

The frosted version has a slightly "warmer" tone (less high frequency response). I prefer these when tuning higher, as they don't sound thin when under greater tension. The clear EC2S are fantastic for low-to-mid tuning.

What are you using for reso heads?

Cheers!

This is all prospective as of now. I was planning on using clear G1's for reso heads.

I think I might be going with the frosted, so what would be a good choice for reso heads with these?

Genera Resos will offer more projection, G1 clears will have a bit more warmeth, EC Resos will further control overtones and shorten sustain, Resonant glass will provide the shortest sustain without altering the tone dramatically.
