Default Here is my idea

I don't know if this is the right place for this thread but here it goes anyway.

So this is what I decided to do i'll buy one each of an
EC2 13 drumhead
G2 clear 13 drumhead
G2 coated 13 drumhead

You should also know that i have a 13 snaredrum and a 13 rack tom.

So what i'll do is decide which drumhead i like best as a rack tom batter head.
Then out of what's left i will decide which drumhead i like best as a snaredrum batter head.

So this is how i'd like it to work out have either the G2 caoted or the G2 clear as the rack tom drumhead and the EC2 be left over for the snaredrum.

I think that would work only for the toms. Those are three great choices for toms. As for the snare, I wouldn't put any of those on, especially the EC2.

What drums do you have?

If you were playing on a beginner kit, I would have said go with G2 coated. Since you have an M-Birch, I'm almost positive you will pick the EC2's.

I would highly suggest the Genera Dry for the snare, fantastic head.

Don't forget your resos!

Yeah i was thinking that the Genera dry head too.

And yes i know i will need new reso's soon.
I've had these heads for about 6 months and it still has the stock heads on evrything,

Yes i know that i should have replaced the heads rightaway but my parents wouldn't let me replace "perfectly good heads."

G1's all the way, I love these heads. The Resonant Glass looks cool, but some people say they don't perform as well as their looks.

But i gusee it's like with remo heads.
Cause remo just makes heads they don't nesacarilly make resonate heads or batter heads.
well they do make specified heads but most of their heads can be used for whatever you want.

So what do you think of this idea

G2 coated heads on top
G1 coated heads on the bottom

I think i like that idea better than haveing an EC2 on top with a G1 clear on the bottom

I think it would give it a warmer sound.
I play light rock, pop, funk, classic rock, and just a little bit of drum and bass.

The EC2's were my favorite head but they were a bit plasticy
and i didn't try differant resonate heads yet.

This combo will give a more warm sound without the plastic snap you get from clear heads.

Yup, it'll work great. When I replace my EC2's, I'm going for the G2's coated. I like the warmth of the EC2's but I hate that plasticy sound.

I have a Pearl Session maple kit with G2 coated on top and G1 clear on the bottom. They are fantastic. I just changed the batters from G2 clears to G2 coated. They both sound good, but the coated heads give a rounder sound with less attack than the clears. Either way is a great combo.

That Souns good

G2 over G1 sound like a good convination...

one time I got, G2 over Ambassadors, and sounded great in the time... Now I'm looking forward to place G1 instead ambassadors...

Let me know how it works for you




Victor




PS : Does anyone have seen "Fat Elvis" around here??

G2 over G1 is a really good sound, resonant glass might be too open of a sound for you. Remo's equivalent to the resonant glass would be something similar to a diplomat

I'd go with a coated G1 or ambassador on the snare. Let it sing a little, the ec2 will choke the sound out of it.

I'm about to rehead my entire kit (toms) with a coated G2/clear G1 combo. I got these heads as part of a 'gift' for helping with a jam session at a local music manufacturers offices.

Although I am mostly an Aquarian guy, my very close second choice (by a hair) is Evans. I had a similar 'gift' last year and got EC2's all the way around. They are to be sure, beautiful sounding heads. However, they weren't as resonant as I would have liked and therefore not as versatile. I hear many raves about these heads from others as well so my opinion is just for me. FWIW: These were over Aquarian Classic Clears, the equivalent of a clear G1.

The coated G2's are my fav tom batter from Evans. However, I've also had decent success with a coated G2 as a snare batter. In fact one of my 13" Pork Pie maple snares are getting one as a replacement. It's not the best head for jazz playing but works great for almost any kind of 'backbeat' style playing for me. I do think it matters what kind of drum you put it on. For instance, I would not put a coated G2 on a mahogany shelled drum. There would be very little attack. But a brighter wood like my thin shelled Pork Pie maples (or even a birch drum) can sound great.

I wouldn't put an EC2 on the snare unless you want a noticeably dampened sound. It wouldn't be as dead as say, an Evans Hydraulic (ala '70's Steve Gadd), but IMO would not give you a wide enough tonal/resonance range.

New heads are definitely fun. With good heads, sometimes you hear your instrument's true colors for the first time


Jim


P.S. - There's a brand new Evans head out called 'G-Plus'. I'd be interested in anyone's experience with it.
