I have owned this head for a couple of weeks now and they look and sound gorgeous with no sign of wear and tear. Nice Mid tone sound that has a crack that could be heard around the world. I matched it with its snare head product which gives out NO overtones! So it is very nice on the ears.

What I found with these heads were that they are very easy to tune, took me 5 mins to get the right sound out of the drum (keeping in mind I have nice drums) and all I did was tighten them to a point and tested it out, sounded magnfique.

If you do not own this head yet; well... you should haha!

Thank you for reading.

I bought this about 6 months ago and I would agree with the description of it to a T. It is exactly as described in every way. I feel for my taste it is a little too dry and heavy. I like my snare sound to have a bit of play with the tone, but with this head you won't get it. It's either on or off no in between (so to speak). Not bad for heavy hitters and hard rock/metal music but for an all around sound go with soething different maybe just a g2 coated. Good luck

        Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

        Controls overtones without the deadening caused by o-rings or Moon Gel. You get a big, cracking backbeat with just the slightest amount of ring. The new Level-360 design lets the head sit very flush on the bearing edge, which makes tuning super easy.

            I play in a southern rock band and this head hit the sweet spot! Great response with almost no ring or sustain, just full on beat-keeping power. I have a pork pie "big black" used a drum dialer to tune it in, 80 on the resonator 90 on the batter, girls were gushing through their panties. Love it!

                Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

                I have tried several heads from Evans and Remo trying to get "just the right sound". For the past few years, both my snares have had Remo Coated Powerstoke 3 heads. They provided the full sound that I wanted, without too much ring - though there was still enough that I used moongels on them. After continuously reading reviewing and trying out heads, I decided to try one of these and I'm never going back! IT IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT on my Pearl Omar Hakim Signature Snare Drum. I like my snares tuned tight top and bottom (about 87-90 with a drum dial). I pulled off the old head, tightened this bad boy down and it was magic! The tighter I tuned it, the better it got. There is zero ring, and the sound is perfectly snappy, yet full. I can't stop playing it! I will be buying another for my Pearl SMX-1455S Session Custom Maple Snare right after posting this comment!

                BTW, I've been shopping with MF since about 2006, and I've never posted a review on anything (laziness I guess), but I had to comment on this head. It is exactly what I've been looking for. Enjoy your purchase!

                  Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

                  This head replaced my previous horrible sounding clear pinstripe snare head. And this was a huge improvement. It is way, way bouncier than the pinstripe. I can do double stroke rolls so much better on this head. It also improved the overall sound quality greatly. It kills lots of the nasty overtones, but it doesn't deaden the sound at all. The drum is still as lively as can be. Rim shots and rim clicks also sound way better. It is also very sensitive. I would recommend this head to anyone for any musical application.

                    I bought this head for my pearl 14 in. snare that I use with my Slingerland Classic Kit and I love the crack and short sustain. Make sure that you don't have a premadona in your band that is afraid of a big sound from your drums.

                    Tuned up right away. Has that 2-ply thud when hit dead-center. Great for Rock and Metal.
                    Added a moongel at the edge, barely needed. Probably will record well with very little overtones
                    that would need (or want) muffling.
                    Not much for press rolls or jazz or fusion nuances. For that get yourself a 1-ply without coating.
                    For backbeat? Thumbs up. For drag-ruffs, buzzrolls, fancy and tricky stuff, meh, not so much.

                          .........and it works, too. Recently, I placed these on two very different snares with equally fantastic results, a Tama SLP G-maple and a Trixon 14 x 5.5 inch, hammered copper. (No, that's not a typo. Google Trixon. It's an interesting story. And I assure you, that drum is the nicest piece of work you will EVER find at twice the price!) Anyway, throw out your duct tape, felt strips, gooey, plastic snot-wads and put this head on any snare you've got, (excepting maybe an aluminum snare as they are often dry enough.) I assure you, you will be pleased and amazed. Ring out - tone in. Big bash or ghost notes, it doesn't matter. The thing just sounds great.

                              I purchased a 14x6 Tama Bubinga S.L.P. Snare at Guitar Center and was open to recommendations for a snare head. The clerk recommended this with a Hazy 300 for snare side. My best description for it is that it eliminates all of the unwanted overtones and ring but allows the drum to breathe and speak freely. It's loud and it can cut but it isn't irritating. Quite possibly the best snare head I have purchased and I have bought several types from Remo, Evans, and Aquarian.

                                  This head came as a bonus with a pack of EC2s, which I was putting on a refurbished Pearl Forum that has a beadless 6" seamed steel snare drum. The drum as it came to me was covered with moon gels. Without them, the drum had an annoying after-ring, like hitting a bell.

                                  I think I'd probably hate this head on my better snare drum, but on this particular drum it did the trick to tame the ring.

                                  One thing to note, however, is that if you dampen the edges of the dead (as this head does) rim shots sound kind of like hitting a 55 gallon can. This head can tame and overly ringy drum, but if you like to do rim shots, move to the right on the Evans head scale.

                                    so I wanted to try yet another snare head to find the sound I was going for on my new tams alp power maple snare drum and I came across the genera hd dry coated heads on the site here. I read a bunch of the reviews which raved about the head being so good so I bought 2 of them and tried them out. It took about 5 minutes to get it tuned, using 2 keys and turning them in pairs until it felt right and it was done! On a tune bot I was around 280 top and 320 bottom and I couldn't believe the sound. I always shoot for that ambassador or emperor or g2 coated head with a little piece of moon gel which gives me a fat tone with just a tiny bit of ring and this head did it all by itself! Needless to say I turned around and bought 10 of them to put on all of my snares. I have never seen one head capable of sounding good on all of my snares but again I was surprised by this one. Yes it sounded good on all of my snares. The funny thing is that I tried the regular genera dry and absolutely hated it. It sounded dead and not unlike hitting a thick cardboard box. The bottom line is this..these reviews...are spot on! Try this head out and see if it works for you, especially if you have a finicky drum thats difficult to tune or a drum that you have tried a bunch of heads on and are still unable to get sounding the way you want it to sound. This could be your savior!

                                    I've been a Remo user for about 7 years before meet Evans. 15 years later, I'm still trusting the quality, consistence and sound improvement of the Evans drumheads. This one is my favorite head for all my snares. Add warmth and "roundness" to all snares of all sizes. Helps to control undesired overtones, but keeping the natural sound of each shell. Very recommended.

                                          I was always a Remo Ambassador fan for my snare but I tried out this Evans head and was THRILLED with its quality and how easily it can be tuned. Provides a precise and dry "crack" without comprising any other areas. Highly Recommended!

                                              Great snare head. Nice a crisp, lots of pop, and definitely very durable. This head should last a long time unless you're using marching sticks. For the practice/studio/gig player that doesn't play speed metal, this should last a long, long time.
