    So, im looking to make the switch to Evans, at least for one head change to see if i like them, and to see if they'll last me longer than my Remos do. I have decided on G2 Coateds for the toms and an EQ4 Coated for the bass, becuz i use the Remo equivalents now. i am having a little trouble deciding on a snare head. i use a Remo Emperor X snare head now becuz i like a nice crack to my snare. i am considering the ST Dry for durability purposes. suggestions?

    ive been using Evans on both my kits. tried all kinds for my snares and never liked any of them. G2 sounded the best until i whacked all the sound out of it in 2 weeks. went out yesterday and picked up a Remo Vintage Emperor and all i can say is WOW whatta difference. a great snare head.

    Try the Evan's EC frosted with reverse dot man they are very durable and the sound that comes out of that head is undescribable.

    +1. I used the EC2's on my toms, and I never though I could really describe them as "versatile" heads. On the snare, I can tune that baby any way I like it. I love that head with a hazy 300 on the resonant! It looks close to new after a couple of months now!

    From my time working in a drum shop I've noticed very little in common between the Onyx heads by Evans and the Black Suede heads by Remo. Respectfully, the only similarities would be the colors. The Onyx head seems to have a muffled sustain with rather defined stick definition, whereas the Black Suede Emperor has an abundance of warm sustain and a subdued stick attack.

    I'd like to hear from the community if anybody has used these heads long-term and has a different review or opinion on them.

    Until then, Tata!!

    Just saw the thread. Thanks for posting this chart. I've always wanted to have a list to compare. I too mostly use Remo, but I'm moving over to Evans heads now and this list will help me out. Mucho Gracious JSB! Saved it to my Evernote so I'll always have this with me, when I'm shopping.

    Yes , great comparison chart but I think It needs to be updated. There has been a few more new heads out in the last 4 years. Just Saying.

    Confused about the measurements used. No drum head in the world is 7 milimeters thick. That would be almost like a 1/4 plywood.

    all the best...
