Pick one. Evans makes great heads. I've had success with coated G1, G2, and G Plus. Depends what you're looking for.

Coated G2 over clear G1. That combo is very popular

Aquarian has the most durable coated heads IMO plus they even last longer before going dead.

Coated G2 with clear G1 reso. I try others but keep coming back to this combo as it always works great.

The ones with the most blessings and static discharge, lol. Most of my problems have been with Evans G2 heads.

Nope, you can usually get a batter and a reso for a couple bucks more than you will pay for an Evans batter, even less if you can find the multi packs. BTW Response 2 over Classic clear is the equivalent to G2 over G1.

I just some drums given to me, which are entry level Slingerlands from the 80s. On the toms I put coated Evans G14 over coated G1. They sound good at my house, but it may be a few weeks before I can jam with other musicians and try them in a band situation. I think I am through buying two-ply heads. Peace and goodwill.

I love single ply, so I would recommend either G Plus or G14 over G1's. If your tom sizes allow, these guys have great deals on packs:
