Default New Evans heads on Tama Superstar Hyper Drives

I just replaced the stock batter heads on my Tama Superstar Hyper Drive kit with Evans heads. I don't have any photos yet, but will post some when I get a chance. Wow ! What a difference in the sound. The stock heads had a thinner, plastic like tone, but the new ones seem fuller, have a warmer tone, and better stick response.
Here's the Evans heads I went with:

Snare: 14" coated Power Center Reverse Dot

10", 12", 14", 16" toms: coated G2's

(still using the stock resos, which I think are made by Evans anyway).

Photos to come in the near future.
Anyone else have Superstars with G2's ? How do you like them ?

Can you post any sound clips? The stock heads aren't that great, as you said. I'm still using the stock resos on mine though until I can afford new ones. I've tried coated ambassadors and coated emperors with good results. I'm currently using clear StudioXs on the toms. The snare has a coated ambassador over a Ludwig weather master. I also swapped the stock snares. The kick has an SKII with EQ3. Sounding pretty good.

Sorry, but I don't have access to a vidoe camera or recording gear right now.

I know what you mean. I was using Remo Ebony Pinstripes on all toms, Ambassador batter on my Ludwig wood snare, and Remo Pinstripes on Bass and Pearl Steel Snare.
I heard a Evans on a friends drum and was sold. So now the setup is as follows;

Evans Ebony Hydraulic on the batter side of all Toms and Bass, Ebony Coated Hydraulic for the snare.
Evans hazy for the snare reso and EQ2 on the Bass reso. I put the snare heads on the Ludwig wood snare and it has a very nice sharp snap to it.
The toms have the Pearl resos on it and I am saving up to get the Ebony single ply resos for the toms.
With this set up I do not have to use any other muffles or baffles to produce the sound that I have wanted for so long. I liked the Remos but the Evans just sound better.

I play rock/metal by the way.
