        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.

        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

          A lot of crack. Low overtones. Nice drumhead so far. (This is my first time using this particular head).

            Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

            This snare head does not have a lot of overtones and "twangyness" like most snare heads do. This head somehow brings out the tone of the snare better than any head I have ever used. Stays tuned for long periods of time. It is my favorite.

                This has a great sound right out of the box -- just slap it on, tune it up, and you are done, without a need for a bunch of extra tweaks. Good technology, not gimmicks

                    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!

                      The best head for sure and I use an Evans Orchestral 300 with it, love the combination. With it you get that Pro sound perfect for recording. The Tone and pitch is clean as you can get, I think.

                      Have been playing over 50 years, & Played about all there is and, this is the best. I don't know about the durability. When I use this combination after whatever I take it off of a 10 lug and reuse it on a straight 8. Unless I need a smooth head.

                      So many heads so little time...

                      Brush or Rakes sound oh great, if you are into Jazz, Contemporary, & Gospel. (ie )

                        This head really sounds great! It's easy to tune and handles heavy-duty workouts. It makes the previous head sound pretty weak by comparison. I will be buying this head for a long time.

                            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.

                              Primarily a bass player but play some drums ( and keys ), so my kit is a lower rung Yamaha but this head added some much needed tone. A nice woody & warm sound with plenty of snap.

                                  This head made my snare sound 10x better. I don't have much to compare it to since I just replaced the stock head with it, but the difference is night and day. It gives a clean, tight sound which is what I like in a snare. I will probably try the EC reverse dot next since it has been suggested to me by several people, but I am quite pleased with this head. Try it out!
