Awesome Resonant Head

Comments:

My Starclassics came with Evans G2 clear batters and G1 clears on the bottom. Quickly changed the clears to coated, but always loved the body the G1s gave as resonants (instead of Evans resonant heads or Remo's diplomats). The J1 has the same body, bit with a little more brightness and sensitivity due to the extra flex the film seems to get from the etching process. I tend to tune my batters at there lowest tension where they can still produce a note and typically set the resonant a 5th higher. This combination sounds huge. The only issue I've run into with the J1s is their penchant for stretching and taking a while to settle.

Drummer

Comments:

This is my first experience with the Evans J1 drum head. I perform in a Jazz Trio and use brushes a lot. If you're going to use a lot of brush work, get this head. The sound is very consistent on the entire head, no matter where you place your brush. It allows you to really move over the head more expressively knowing the sound will be there for you. No smooth head drop outs because the head is worn.

J1 and G Plus etched

Comments:

The J1 is a good head. The G Plus Etched was a great head. The J1s are spectacular for brush work when new and remarkably durable for lite playing, maintaining their textured surface far longer than the coated white heads. The G Plus Etched had all the same characteristics of the J1 but with added warmth of tone and superior durability. Evans needs to bring the G Plus Etched back into production perhaps discontinuing the G Plus Coated series. The etched process is superior to the white coating process as Evans has demonstrated with the G Plus Etched, the EC2S Frosted and the J1.

What kind of lottery did my BRUSHES just win!?

Comments:

These heads are smokin'. I have a whole kit of SD and toms with them and they are killer. Basically exactly like coated ambassadors but with twang-tastic rimshots and no wearout. They are like the first 20 minutes on a new coated head but FOREVER. They get super ugly if you get lug oil or grease on them so be ready for that. Like paper, they get kind of see-though. Doesn't effect the sound though!
