Gorgeous kit my friend!The kit I bought from a well known touring drummer had a G2/G1 clear combo on the toms.
When I got the kit over a year a-go, The heads were already on it for at least half a year and looked and sounded like they were new.
Now they still do (The same goes for the EQ3 on the kick).
As I always loved the tiny holes in a head (I even made them myself on Remo heads later in my life) opposed to the dot, it was a no brainer to get the Genera Dry.
I don’t experience Evans being plastic sounding. On the contrary. I experience that with Remo with their clear and especially ebony heads.

This came apperent to me when I received the 12” tom earlier this year. As that one came with an AA Smooth White head.
Three snares still have Remo and each time I play those, Im glad I made the switch.
Interesting about the life of the G2s, that gives me some hope as I still have those on my maple kit and it sounds fine as it is.
I agree, I don't find the G2s plasticky sounding, I may have worded it poorly, but I was only finding that characteristic on the UV1/2. I'm sure their other stuff sounds great, I just don't have a ton of experience with it. Interesting that you find that with the Remo stuff. I've never played the Ebony stuff (although I think those are supposed to have more attack), but the any clear heads would probably have more click to them compared to coated heads.
Thanks for weighing in!
