I'm currently using Ec2 batters on my 10, 12, and 16 toms and G1 clears on my 10, and 16 toms, and a 16" Genera resonant on my 16 floor tom just wondering if theres a huge difference, if any at all between the G1 clears and Genera resonants.

I thought the Genera Resonant was 7 mil? Like a Diplomat? G1 is 10 mil thick.

According to my information, both the G1 clear and the Genera Resonant heads are 1 ply 10mil heads. They go on to say that the Genera Resonant heads have an enhanced high-end brilliance and brighter overtones. My standard is still the G1 clear for the resonant side of my toms.

Thanks for the video link Bird. Surpsingly this is probably the only Bob Gatzen video on Youtube that I have not yet seen. How I missed it, I don't know. lol. I love the way Bob explains most everything in his Youtube videos.

Also, @audiotech - thanks. You pretty much hit the nail right on the head, I sat down for about an hour after this, and tuned the 16x16 and no matter what the resonant felt like it was just a tiny bit too bright. Still an amazing sound, but I'm going to pick up a 16" clear G1 definetely. Maybe later on this year i'll try a full set of Genera Reso's

They're often overlooked (and sadly mistaken for the same thing as the G1's but they do in fact have a brighter sound due to the different film used. Great option if you're looking for a bit more presence in your toms.

Cheers!
