Default Evans g2 Coated White or The Hydraulic Black

Hey, I'm a little confused over which heads I should use for my kit. I usually play funk rock, blues, classic rock & roll with my band and occasionally some metalcore while I'm at home to please my inner metalhead. Lately I've been focusing on picking up gospel chops, so whichever head would fit the bill for that would be perfect. However, it's gotta sound decent when I'm playing something else, something heavier too (since I play for more than one band)

Any kind of help would be appreciated :) I currently have a Yamaha Rydeen and I'm also looking for advice on new skins for my snare. Thanks!

I would definitely go for the G2's, very very versatile. Hydraulics seem to be strictly for metal because of how dead they are

The G2s. I play in a sludge//death metal band and even for me the hydraulics were lifeless.

Hydraulics have a pretty extreme sound, and it isn't a versatile one at all. Unless your drums never leave the garage and total overtone control is important I'd stay away from them for now.

G2 or G Plus are versatile, so I'd look at those pretty closely. Either one would work well for a snare better too.

G2 coated gets my vote also. Tried Hydraulics back in the day. The only ones I liked at all were the Hydraulic blue.

G2 it is. This is how the kit looked originally, when it had the hydraulics on.

The problem with Hydraulics, and it's quite a big problem, is that they really do kill the characteristics of the drum. I would only ever recommend using the Hydraulics if you are having serious overtone problems, or are a bad tuner. They can be good to record with as they are a pretty dense head, and alot easier to process - By that I mean you can add reverb...etc. These heads would also be good for shells that are defective. They are very forgiving!
