Default EQ4 Frosted

Has anyone tried that as a bass batter? I'm wondering what some of the characteristics are like.

I have used a Clear EQ4 in the past, but that was like 6 or 7 years ago. I have mainly used Clear Powerstroke 3's, which are basically the same thing, but never the coated variety. I know Evans frosting isn't quite as dead as Remo or Evans white coating.

Lets hear it!

i can help you out with this.
i currently use one with a nylon patch on it and i can safely say that it sounds great for funk/pop/light rock/gospel/fusion and sort of works well in jazz. i wouldnt use anything but a hard->soft felt beater on it, but otherwise it is a great head.

does that help?

It does. Is it significantly warmer than the clear version? Dull? More attack (the sound of the beater striking the head), etc...?

I'm also not too sure if I want to use the Evans AF patches or just the regular clear ones. Durability isn't an issue for me.
