Default Evans G14

Has anyone tried the new Evans head G14?

I have not yet I'm just curious about what others think about it if they've tried it.

The reviews were saying they're made to be durable I've been using the coated G2's on my toms.

The aim was to have an ultra-durable single-ply head that could take a punch and put out some serious volume without sacrificing tone and sensitivity. They'll also tune lower than most other heads. Great option if you want to do a graduated set across your toms (10mil G1 on the high tom, 12mil G Plus on the mid tom, 14mil G14 on the floor tom) and sound killer on a snare.

Cheers!

You would recommend a graduation of head thickness over the set? (10,12,14,16 toms in my case) Because I love the sound and response of these heads and want to replace all my little emperors.

You could go with a graduated set or same across the entire kit. I've got all G14 clears on my Pearl Masters right now (10/12/16) and I'm quite happy. That being said, I tried doing a graduated set on one of the kits here at the office and was quite impressed with the sound and feel across the kit.

Very Cool. I will try the graduated setup in the near future.

The graduated idea is a good one. I would be a little concerned about the durability of thinner heads on the smaller toms, though. I've been using the G Plus (12 mil single ply)on the tops and bottoms of all my toms (8,10,12,16) and have been extremely happy with the tone on all of them. Quite durable, too. I didn't even know the G14's existed until I read this thread. I'll certainly give them a try the next time I need new heads. Single ply heads are where it's at, IMO.

That being said, I'm always happy to answer any questions about our drumheads or drumheads in general via PM. I do my best to stay on top of the conversation here, but it can be a real challenge to not miss things.

Cheers!

Trust me your help is appreciated, always, but four threads about G14 within 7 or 8 threads of each other is wasted space.
