Thread: Heads Comparison Chart.

    Default Heads Comparison Chart.

    MORE ON DRUMSETS AND DRUMSET COMPARISONS


    I thought I would add this information that I found in a chart which shows equivalencies between Remo and Evans heads. Post in this thread if you know of any updates that need to be made to the chart either for new heads or discontinued heads.

    Also if you know about Aquarian heads then lets see those equivalencies too. If we all keep a full difinitive list up to date I think it will be very helpfull for any drummers who are wondering about head selection.

    Heres the list:

    Toms/Snare
    Evans J1 = Remo Diplomat - 10mil Etched (7.5mil effective)
    Evans G1 = Remo Ambassador - 10mil Clear/Coated
    Evans EC1 = No Remo equivalent - 10mil Clear/Coated w/Edge Control
    Evans GPlus = Remo Ambassador X - 12mil Clear/Coated
    No Evans equivalent = Remo Vintage A - 2-ply 7.5- and 3-mil Polyester Film Coated
    Evans G2 = Remo Emperor - 2 x 7mil Clear/Coated
    Evans Onyx = Remo Ebony Suede Emperor - 2 x 7.5mil Matte Black Coated
    Evans EC2 = Remo Pinstripe - 2 x 7mil Clear/Coated w/Edge Control
    Evans Hydraulic = No Remo equivalent - 2 x 7mil Clear/Blue/Black, Oil Filled
    Evans EC Resonant = No Remo equivalent - 10mil w/Edge Control

    Snare/Snare Side
    Evans Power Center = Remo Controlled Sound - 10mil Coated w/5mil Reinforcement Dot
    Evans Genera = Remo Powerstroke 3 - 10mil Coated w/Overtone Control Ring
    Evans EC1 Reverse Dot = No Remo equivalent - 14mil w/Edge Control & Reinforcement Dot
    Evans Genera HD = Remo Powerstroke 4 - 1 x 7.5mil, 1 x 5mil w/Overtone Control Ring
    Evans EC Reverse Dot = No Remo equivalent - 1 x 6.5mil, 1 x 10mil w/Edge Control & Reinforcement Dot
    Evans Snare Side Hazy 200 = Remo Diplomat Snare Side - 2mil Hazy
    Evans Snare Side Hazy 300 = Ambassador Snare Side - 3mil Hazy

    Bass
    Evans EQ4 = Remo Powerstroke 3 - 10mil Clear w/Overtone Control Ring
    Evans EMAD = No Remo equivalent - 10mil Clear w/EMAD Damping
    Evans EMAD Onyx = No Remo equivalent - 10mil Matte Black Coated w/EMAD Damping
    Evans EQ3 = Remo Powerstroke 4 - 2 x 6.5mil w/Overtone Control Ring & Removable Muffle Ring
    Evans EMAD2 = Remo Powersonic - 1 x 6.5mil, 1 x 10mil w/EMAD Damping

    Bass Resonant
    Evans Resonant Black = No Remo equivalent - 7.5mil Smooth Black
    Evans REMAD = No Remo equivalent - 7.5mil Smooth Black w/Overtone Control Ring & Offset Hole
    Evans Onyx Resonant = No Remo equivalent - 7.5mil Matte Black Coated w/Overtone Control Ring & Offset Hole
    Evans EQ3 = Remo Powerstroke 3 w/Hole - 10mil Smooth Black w/Internal Control Ring & Offset Hole

    Is that from the Evans card thingy? I picked one of those up last time I was at the shop. Good post.

    Cheers guys, it was actually one I found online. I have only used Evans heads and my knowledge of them is limited but I wanted to see what differences the Remo heads have and then I came across this, I just wanted to make sure it was all up to date and correct and I really hope it will be of use to others as it is to me.

    They actually have that on a nice laminated card for quick reference. I found one at my local drum shop.

    I was just reading through a thread in the reviews section about Aquarian heads, I'm really intrigued to try some out but I don't know any shops local to me that sells them, however there is this wonderful invention I could use...I believe they call it...'the internet'?!?.

    Thanks Kazaamski, I just did some checking too, and I think I am right in saying that the vintage A has no Evans equivalent? I will go and edit the list now. Thanks again.

    To all the rest you are very welcome glad it helps.

    It doesn't appear so from what I can see online - Remo state: "Emperor X is 2 'free floating' plies of 10 mil mylar film with a 5 mil reverse black dot"

    There may be an Evans head that is similar in construction but I am honestly not sure, sorry.
