What a great head this is!! Thick, Durable but still has a lot of sensitivity. This will totally be my snare batter head of choice for years to come. I've flipped back and forth with Remo heads for years looking for something that's thick, takes care of high ring or overtones on it's own (without those gel things or tape) but still has sensitivity enough to not sound "dead". I found it. Looks sharp, sounds sharp. I'm glad i tried it, I'm a new Evans fan.

I must say, this head is god-awful. I tuned this to where it sounded excellent... and then it happened. I kid you not, the first actual hit I executed on the snare I did while practicing caused a massive dent to appear. It took three months for one dent to even appear on my last snare head (which happened to be a single-ply Evans Power-Dot head)! I find it really sad because the ST Dry is supposed to be a double-ply head, but yet it dents oh-so easily... well, at least this head anyway. It might've been a dud, but still, I was not impressed with it. I don't even hit hard! Sorry Evans, but I'm gonna stick to Aquarian heads, which sound much nicer anyways.

      Comments about Evans ST Dry Coated Snare Drumhead:

      These ST DRY Coated Heads work very well on all Snare Drums, wood or metal, however, they work TERRIFIC on any size METAL SNARE DRUM, especially the PICCOLO's...they will make any Metal Piccolo give you that high End Pop with no ringing overtones like no other snare you have heard before. The ST DRY and HD DRY Coated are the only heads I use on my dozen plus Snare Drums!

      Evans ST Dry is perfect

      from Alaska

      Comments about Evans ST Dry Coated Snare Drumhead:

      For me, this is the perfect snare head.It is a tiny bit less ringy than a coated emperor(my previous fav snare head) Excellent response,perfect amount of ring, with a nice crack sound.I tune my snare medium and this head is perfect that tuning - nice crack with body and subtle ring (overtones) that give it a natural(not too dry) sound.You really shoudl give this head a try if you think the remo rings steal too much tone from your snare but also don't want that super ringy sound....

      from Milford, NH

      Comments about Evans ST Dry Coated Snare Drumhead:

      this head does not have the tuning range that i was expecting. I could not get it to sound good at all in a medium to medium-tight range, it just had a lot of highs and mids with no low end what so ever. I then tried a different approach and tuned it tight, and I mean really tight, almost like a marching head. it now has the best high end CRACK i've ever heard in my life. In short this is a good head, but you have to want that high end crack sound, if you want a deeper sound with more low end punch, look elsewhere. PS, do NOT use this for jazz!!

          The head sat perfectly on the bearing edge all the way around during head replacement. This is a well made batter head that does a very good job of eliminating excessive overtones from my 14x5.5 maple snare, but still delivers a nice rimshot tone. I would definitely purchase this head again.

            Evans is no stranger to my family of drummers, Our oldest son recently added Evans black Hydraulics to his Rodgers drums (What a sound) and his son plays the same. With the price we get from M.F., its possible to upgrade. Evans like any head will last when played properly, tuned and mounted properly. I have never been a "POUNDER" when playing. Proper tuning and mic's give me all I need for shows. Thanks M.F.

            Comments about Evans ST Dry Coated Snare Drumhead:

            I bought this head to be used on my 13" steel side snare and it sounds just as I had hoped. The steel shell's overtones are controlled and pleasant now rather than overwhelming and make for a great sounding side snare. This snare really balances the ringing/sustain character with the attack and crack of any snare. Very bright.

            from California

            Comments about Evans ST Dry Coated Snare Drumhead:

            Just got mine today and tuned it up. It lets an appropriate amount of overtones and character through without choking the life out of the drum. It sounds best when tuned tightly and without any muffling. I paired mine with a Evans 200 because I was worried the thickness of the ST would kill articulation. The two sound great together.

              Been using Evans HD Dry heads for awhile. Loved those heads but wanted to try something a little different. Went with the ST Dry for a little more muffled sound to dry up the overtones. Wow, love this head. This is now my go to snare head. Live or recording this head will do it all. Thanks Evans!

                    I use this head on both my wood and metal snare drums. No muffling, moongels etc. needed. Absolutely perfect amount of ring and sustain for close miking live. I've played big stages with some of the best pro sound techs in the country, and they all love my fat punchy snare sound. It takes like 10 seconds at sound check to dial it in. Very durable too. I had over 60 performance / playing hrs. on one and it still looked and sounded like new. Coating has not wore off yet and I moved that head to my practice kit and beat on it almost every day still. Tune this head properly and it will reward you. This is the only snare head I buy now.

                        All I can say is wow.... I recently jumped off the Remo bandwagon, for several reasons. I just was growing tired of the sound I was getting and needed a change. The kicks didn't have the sound I was looking for in my head and neither did the snares. Toms were lackluster and so on. I've never heard a bad word against Evans, so when I decided to re head my expansive kit this time around I chose Evans. And man let me tell ya, I'm never going back.
                        This head is just simply amazing, gone are my days of trying to catch airborn Moongels or internal dampening. The Dry in the name does exactly what it implies. A quick with just enough ring fat attack with every hit. If you know how to tune and own a decent snare there is no reason why this head won't work for you. My only annoyance would be it doesn't come in smaller sizes for side snares. Evans by the way have some of the best customer support I've ever encountered. Shout out to them for helping me pick heads during my transition between brands!
                        All in all you can't go wrong with this head, so quite reading all these reviews and get one!

I Would recommend this head over Remo counterparts. I use it for Jazz, classic rock, pop, and even punk. Also has a decent surface for brushes.

                                This head added the life to my snare that my music dearly needed. The best snare head on the market. It only dents because I play long shows and hit HARD.

                                  Love this as my snare batter head, nice overtone control, good attack, nice and balanced sustain at all volumes. I've used an ST Dry for probably 6 years now and it held up admirably for both practicing and performance. I use them with an Evans Hazy 300 on the snare-side with a 13x5.5. I tried it with a Hazy 200 for a while, but it made it too sensitive and open sounding. Haven't tried a Hazy 500.

                                    I switched to this snare head from the Evans EC Reversed Dot. I feel this head has more of the snare tone I was looking for. I would describe it as having more snap and punch and much better sounding rim shots then the reversed dot head. Its strong and loud and I plan on using the ST Dry on my snare from now on!

                                    This is the best head ever. I bought a used tama snare drum that had this head on it already used. I have been using this head for a year now and the coating hasn't even faded away! This head gives you bite, crack and a significant amount of warmth. Make this the next head you buy!
