Default EC2 combo???

What would be a good combo with Evans EC2's for batter that would give me a nice full, rich, deep sound on my 2001 Pearl Export?

Well if you had to use EC2's then it would be a G1 clear.

But i reccomend G2 coated top head and G1 coated bottom.

I want to hear a little diminuendo on each hit that is nice and full, not just the initial hit.

Since you have an Export, you're going to want something that can absorb some overtones but still resonate well. Evans released the new EC resonant head, it has the same small silver muffling ring as the EC2 batter, but is a thinner 1 ply version.

If your kit was higher end, I would suggest a G1, but this should go the trick. (you should buy the coated EC2 for the batter)

I would suggest the new EC Reso head. I tried it with the EC2's I have one my kit, I used to get kind of a high overtone but it swiped that away immediatley. It gave the drum a kind of bright pitch with a lot of low end resonance.

Although that was a good drum sound I like warm full bodied drums, so I'm slowly switching out my head to G2 coated batter heads, and G1 coated bottom heads.

I'm using EC2 clear over G1 clear on Tama birch shells, tuned to the same pitch top and bottom, and I like the sound. It's loud and full, yet controlled.

Genera resonants are brighter sounding than G1 clears.

Nearly everyone uses clear 1-ply 10mil heads for resonants, take your pick.

Clear EC2s would be good batters for your kit.
