For many years I used Ludwig X-Thin as snare drum resonant head .... I LOVE THIS SOUND, is sensitive and clear ... perfect !!!

When my X-Thin Ludwig snare side tried broke Evans Hazy 300 (300 mils thick as Ambassador snare side Remo or Aquarian Classic Clear). The sound of my boxes turned semi-metal like plastic, unnatural;, drier and less buzz. Finally I ended up removing the Evans Hazy 300 and buying Aquarian Classic Clear (has the same roughly 300 thousand but better sensitivity).

In my view, for its versatility for all styles, it is preferable to use (cost the same):

1. Ludwig X-Thin
2. Aquarian Classic Clear snare side
3. Remo Diplomat snare hazy.
3. Remo Ambassador snare hazy.

With any of these get better sensitivity in the snare wires at any volume dynamics and in any type of snare drum (wood, metal or acrylic).

Hear that whip crack!!!

Comments about Evans Hazy 300 Snare Side:

I highly recommend this snare side head in combination with an Evans Genera HD dry batter! The two together, with any tuning, will blow your ears out with a ferocious crack. I tried this on my Pork Pie BOB snare, and my old Ludwig Accent snare, and they both sounded fantastic! This snare can make bad snares good, and good snares amazing! Must have for any drummer!!!

The Greatest!

By drummmies 101

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Evans Hazy 300 Snare Side:

I have been an Evans drummer ever since i picked up my first snare head, but this is THE BEST DECISION I HAVE MADE! I was having snare buzz trouble and it eliminated all of the buzz, and it was also very, very easy to tune, it took me 5 minutes total to change and tune this head. I would have to say the best batter head with it is the evans genera hd dry, perfect pair!

    Comments about Evans Hazy 300 Snare Side:

    I bought this for the resonant snare side due to the reviews it got and how it was suppsoed to make my snare sound better. Well I put it on the snare and every time I tightened it, it kept making a crackling noise. I thought it was the new wood hoops I was installing. Long story short, I tightened down to the tone of my other snare (Sonor Maple the same model I currently have with a different lug hardware, but the same...I have 2 of them because they sound that great) and it made a loud snap, and the head was broken at one of the lug points. So I put back on the cheap 9-10 year old Remo UT head that the Sonor snare came with and it worked great! Pretty sad when the one that comes with the snare is better than the Evans one I paid extra for. I use nothing but Evans heads, but I will not be buying this one ever again! Very disappointed!

          I got this to combine it with the HD Dry Genera and as soon as I tuned it and gave the first hit I was amazed. The sound was incredible. Every drummer should get it.

          Comments about Evans Hazy 300 Snare Side:

          i have always used this guy on the bottom of my snare, and i'll never use a different head. a lot of people don't pay much attention to the resonant side of drums, especially the snare. but it's one of the most important things that shapes your whole kit's sound. evans makes sweet drumheads that beat all the rest. put this head on your snare with some puresound snares and a g2 coated on top and you're good to go. this head will give you a versatile snare that won't dissapoint you no matter what style you play.

              I've used Evans 200 and 300 bottom snare side heads over the years when I could not find my go to Remo Hazy snare side. I was very disappointed each time. The tone of Evans bottom head sounds muted, nasally...like the drum has a cold. It has to be the chemistry of the mylars in the head that for me, just does not produce a pleasing response or tone. Just tried tuning up the bottom Evans head on my new Mapex Wraith snare to a fairly high tension. It it popped even though the tension rods did not feel like they were even close to being maxed out.
              I Will never use Evans bottom snare heads again....I tried.

                      I paired this head with a Genera HD with great results on both a DW solid maple (Craviotto) and Ludwig Super-Sensitive knock-off steel snare. I like the Evans snare heads and will likely keep replacing my aged resonant heads with the Hazy 300.

                          My 3 snares all have this reso head in play and I couldnt be happier. Its the perfect thickness for the sound I wanted but could never quite get with either the thicker or the thinner heads by another manufacturer.

                              Wow... I can't believe how much more sensitive this head is compared to the Ambassador snare side that I have been using for years. I play metal but need something with high sensitivity to capture rolls, faster blast beats, and ghost notes. This head is completely responsive to every hit, large or small. Granted, I crank my heads up, and the snare is an older 13"x6" Black Panther (best snare drum on the planet, period), and I used a Genera Dry batter (so zero ring and all snare definition) but I'm so impressed by this head that I'm dying to replace the snare sides on my other two snares as well to see how they'll change.
                              A word of warning though, this thing is merciless. It will not allow you to be sloppy. Any and all mistakes will stand out... LOL

                                      Combine this with the Evans Genera HD Dry Snare Head, together they're a combination that can make any cheap snare sound good and make a good snare sound GREAT

                                        I have always been a Remo customer. I was in a pinch and needed a snare side head asap. MF only had the Evans Hazy 300. I love the sound and the response of the snare with this head, it is a thing of beauty. I will be an Evans customer now.

                                        I put this snare side head on my secondary Jazz snare drum (since it isn't a piccolo) and I'm very impressed with the resonance the head has for the price. This is a great head and I'd recommend it to any drummer in any genre as long as your batter head and drum are to your own liking - don't blame the snare side head for your tonal problems!

                                        I replaced the stock drum head on my Yamaha stage custom snare with this head, and it made a huge difference. Tonally the drum is just a little bit better, but the change is in sensitivity. Before, a light tap to the drum would not produce any sort of sound from the metal snares. This is all changed now, for even the slightest tap with my sticks will give a nice, gentle snare noise.

                                        i couldnt believe it when i put this on. it made my snares extra responsive, and allows my snare to cut through the sound. i even have this on a brandless tin snare drum with a genera hd batter and it sounds amazing. this is definitly worth it

                                        I have been trying out lots of drum heads from evans and remo, and i must say, go for the original, yes, the evans hazy 300 is great, but the remo ambassador hazy is even better, the evans hazy 300 is as if it was a smaller batter head that is put on as the hazy, i find the sound coming out isnt that fantastic compared to the remo ambassador hazy :)
