This is by far the best snare head i have used, when tuned up nicely, it produces a loud crack, and i was surprised to find that it is also sensitive, so it's great for ghost noting and such. Since it is a mix between kevlar and a regular head, it is also very durable, i have had mine for about 4 months and there is barely a sign of wear at all.

This head is DURABLE but I haven't found many uses for it. If tuned high it loses an incredible amount of tone and body that was not pleasing to me or my bands. For me, that's a big con. Medium tuning sounds great though, with better response than some other high end snare heads. For the price and lack of versatility, I unfortunately have to give it an average rating. It does not have the tuning range or general tone I personally like. Keep it simple and a bit cheaper.

    Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

    Back in the 70s Joe Pollard had a yellow woven head. This reminds me of this head but the Evans hybrid is even better. Yes, pricey but in the long run a value because of its durability. I put the on my Pearl 8 x14 Alluminum snare and tuned low got that deep,rock sound! Oh my! Tuned up still sounds Crazy good for my needs. Sometimes it's good to try new things !!!!! I have tried every head on the market and this is now my go too.

      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

      I use the 13" on a Steel Pork Pie Little Squealer and for the past year it's been the best head ever! it's incredible, I go from my giging snare to my 14" with a regular old head that needs to be replaced and I can tell that I need to drop the extra cash because it's like 3 heads put into one for durability, and you get amazing-ness on top of it all. So it's really a win-win if you ask me. Oh and it can probably deflect bullets because it's freaking Kevlar.

            I am currently using this head on a brass snare. I was excited to try a head with less ring than my usual G2, but this head kills the tone of the drum entirely. I'm still using it, because I'm in a cover band and no one will notice that it doesn't sound the best. It's nice because i don't have to carry a backup snare

              Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

              I was replacing the drum heads on my drum, and going from clear, to black color heads. I was a little apprehensive about getting a black snare head, until my brother found this gray-ish one. It is a little expensive for a snare head, but is well worth the money. It is durable, and can play heavy on it, or even light and articulate snare etudes. Definitely my favorite upgrade yet.

              Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

              I use this head on a custom nickel over brass drum. Previously I have used a g2, so when I received this head I was expecting it to be more focused than previous heads. Its a little too focused and im still trying to get used to it, although I would say it has a sound that a lot of people could be happy with. Being in a cover band one of the biggest issues is durability. I hit hard and play two - four hour shows every weekend. For as much as the tone is not perfect to my ears, I will continue to use this head because I don't have to worry about bringing a back up....for the batter side that is

                This head is amazing! It is especially great for hard hitters like myself, but it is also a very good head for brushes. It's very responsive and sensitive, ghost notes are so clear and clean sounding. This head is good in any type of concert or recording setting. It tunes easily and has a great overall sound.

                            I play every single day on this batter head and after a YEAR this head still performs.
                            I play punk , with alot of fast snare parts so this thing get a workout.
                            Lasts as long as 3 normal heads easy.
