OVERVIEW

Hit it hard! The Power Center can take it.

Designed to add durability in the spot where the stick strikes it the most, the Power Center also adds focus to your sound. The coated, perforated, center-reinforced head still allows overtones to ring freely when struck on the edges. The head has an open, bright sound and creates a fat backbeat.

FEATURES
Single-ply, 10mil head
Coated
Center-reinforcement dot

Normally you might trash a single-ply head, but not the Power Center. Buy it today and get a head that can take a beating.

This is my go to head for any snare drum. I discovered this head some years ago and have tried many others but I always find myself coming back to this one. I am a relatively heavy hitter and while it is tough enough to withstand that abuse, it is also quite sensitive along the side when it's needed. Good control of overtones with dry sound without being too dry. Try one out today!

I normally use an Emperor Coated on my 14" maple snare but the shop I use was out so I decided to try this out. The one I picked up had the dot on the TOP side of the head (it is also made with the dot on the underside). The head didn't sound bad at all but I was disappointed with how quickly the dot on the top deteriorated. (Meaning the dot cracked and started peeling up.) I've have used two of these heads and the same thing happened with both. I play that snare with a heavy hand so I'm sure that has something to do with it but I expected longer life from a snare head with a reinforced center.I would recommend the head with the dot on the bottom but most def. not the one with the dot on top. As well... with the dot on top as drum magazine, review say, do not work well with brushes.

    My favorite snare head. Used it for playing heavy hitting covers such as Alice in Chains and Godsmack. Great tone from medium to tight tuning and takes a beating.

              Nice, dry, snare head. Put this on any snare for improved sound. I am a heavy hitter and this thing can take the punishment.

              Comments about Evans Power Center Head:

              If you love to play rock music and love to slam on that snare, then this is the perfect drumhead for you, i have owned aquarian heads and remo, but this drum head is the best out of all of them. but however it sounds only okay with other types of music. because of its power center it mainly sounds superb in the center, but not as well in other places on the head.

              this head is ok for the price, but it i very difficult to tune. there is alot of resonance, and i can never get the snare to stop rattling. dont think that i havent spant hours on tuning, because i have.

              Comments about Evans Power Center Head:

              This head sounds great as long as you dont miss the center. It sounds really sloppy if you miss. So far I have had it for 6 months so far so good. It gives a nice and loud crack (if you hit the center). It's a little too loud for soft rolls for me. Overall, a durable, LOUD head and a great buy.

              i've had this head for a while, no problems. my snare's not too good, kind of old, and the strainers falling apart, but this head makes it sound awesome.as a big fan of a nice sounding snare, i highly recommend it.

              Comments about Evans Power Center Head:

              I decided that the coated EC I was using on my snare just wasn't cutting it, and having used this power center on a previous drumset, I bought it again. Smart decision. My snare drum is a completely different animal now with a massive crack and a beautiful tone (and twice as loud). From what I've seen they can be pretty durable for a single ply, but they can be broken if you Krog your way through several shows. Still, this is a great snare head and I've used it on both metal and wood snares with the same results.

              This snare head is pretty sweet. I put it on my Pearl EX snare, with an Evans 300 on the bottom and it sounds GREAT. I have it tuned real tight and it just snaps. I just cranked it down and it sounds amazing. I think it doesn't ring too bad, but I like a snare with a good pop and a little ring. It doesn't dampen the sound unless you want it to. Basically, this snare does what you WANT it to. It sounds great no matter what.

              I've been playing on this head for three weeks now and it rocks!! I have an old Rogers drum and was fixing it up and decided I'd try this head (mainly cause the store was out of remo for a 14 inch) and to my surprise it sounds awesome!! I like to krank the head down hard with the ratchet and a lot of cheap drum heads would just pop or sound crappy but this one sounded awesome and still hasn't broke. If you're trying to find a good drum head with awesome sound this is the one!

              This head only sounds good when you hit it hard in the center. If your someone like me who rolls a lot while drumming or uses brushes, this is not the head for you.
