Default Evans EC resonant

Out of curiousity why aren't people trying the EC reso as batters on toms? Isn't the EC reso a singly ply version of the EC2?

I was thinking of equivalent heads to the stock "coated/clear" single ply heads that come on the DW collectors toms and thought the EC resos would be the closest match.

Anyone agree with this?

Before Evans called them reso's those heads were sold as the EC1, They came clear or coated and they were used top and bottom. I had a set of EC1 coated heads.
The coating was a clear frost color. They sounded great as batters. They liked tight tuning as I recall.

The EC1 and EC Resonant are very different heads. The EC1 was 14-mil film while the EC Reso is 10-mil and a different film that is completely water clear, unlike the slightly hazy clear of most batter heads.

I've used an EC Reso as a batter head on my 10" tom to get a more open sound than a EC2 but they just don't seem as durable as a typical 10-mil head. I love them as a bottom head though...

Hi Bobdadruma,

Just to be clear, the EC Reso and the EC1 are two different animals. The EC Reso is a single-ply 10mil head with the SST edge control. The EC1 was a single-ply 14mil with the old silver ring edge control. We now offer single-ply 14mil as the G14, without any edge control in both clear and coated white.

As far as the EC Reso not being marketed as a batter head- the film is a bit softer than what we would typically use for a batter head. As a result, they won't necessary last as long.

Oh, thanks WW & ES, I never realized that they were 14 mil.
I use the EC reso on my floor tom and the Genera reso on my high tom on one of my jazz kits. I am very pleased with the heads.
