"G2 another testament of what makes Evans..."
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
As said before these heads are of great quality, competitive pricing, and seem like they'll last long enough to achieve their purpose.
I put these G2's on my live kit. I've used Evans heads before so the great quality from this company didn't surprise me. I tried this particular series because of price and I really just wanted to see how they sounded. I play mainly rock, but our band covers a vast variety of different types of music live. That being said for this kit I needed something semi-versatile, but dark enough to deliver the good rock tones I look for out of toms. So far these heads haven't let me down. They have reasonably good sustain so they sound great whether dampened or open to ring (when tuned correctly of course). You can use these heads for about any style of music depending how you play. I have them on a rather in-expensive kit and they make it sound like I paid 5-6 times as much for it as I did. I recommend picking up some moon gels with your order, this is the first time I used them and they can really help you further shape your tones to achieve the sounds you want. And if you play different types of music, they make it possible to change tones from song to song or set to set. These heads are everything I'd expect from Evans! I use about 3 different brands depending on what sound I'm trying to achieve and Evans have never let me down.
These heads are beautiful, you can tell they're made well. With drum heads for a live kit (if you're serious about what you do) you should ALWAYS keep back up heads. These heads would definitely make it on the road. During my last gig I intentionally put them through hell just to test their durability v/s the hydraulics (my usual pick) they held up beautifully on all categories I test them on. Tone, durability, and even cosmetic blemishing due to stick strikes. The only bad thing about these heads (and it's not even bad) is they're not hydraulic. They seem like they'll last (depending on frequency of use) long enough to be worth the purchase. I'll write an update review later if possible.
Very competitive pricing.
Dunno, Haven't ever had to use their support...
The Wow Factor
It's a practical addition at a decent price. Like I said I usually use hydraulics but I wanted to try these to compare the differences.
