on the equipment section of his website, Cobus goes over his equipment. He states "I like to switch between coated and clear heads." He uses the g1 when using clear heads, and G2 when using coated heads of his toms. g1 is used as a tom reso head when using the g2 head. However the g2 is a constant on all of his snaresmore
As mentioned in Evans' official website. "Both my live engineers and studio engineers told me that they liked the sound of my Evans heads better that the Remo heads I was using. Live - G2 coated on top of the toms, G1 clear, bottom of toms, Heavy Weight on snare top, hazy 300 snare bottom, EQ 4 Clear, Studio - G12 coated on top of toms, G1 clear bottom of toms, Heavy weight on snare top, hazy 300 snare bottom, EQ 4 clear"more
At 4:40 of this video clip provided by Gear Gods and from their "RIGGED" series, Nick Pierce, 2016 Drummer of Unearth shows off his Tama Starclassic Performer Bubinga/Birch 4 pc Shell Pack Transparent PS42S. "Tom sizes are 10, 12, 16, and 22x20 kick." "Great sounding drums. The mix of the bubinga and birch gives it a great pop. The initial attack right off of the drums is incredible. They're perfect for metal. However they engineered these things, they did it for just what I do.It's an incredible sounding kit. They are really big sounding. They have a real quick sustain. They get into the mix and get out right when you want them." "So, for heads on the drums I'm using Evans EC2's for batters all across the top and then on bottoms I'm using Evans G1's. For the Snare drum, that's a Tama SLP 13x7 G Maple Snare. I've got an Evans Hybrid on top.more
