        I have owned this head for a couple of weeks now and they look and sound gorgeous with no sign of wear and tear. Nice Mid tone sound that has a crack that could be heard around the world. I matched it with its snare head product which gives out NO overtones! So it is very nice on the ears.

        What I found with these heads were that they are very easy to tune, took me 5 mins to get the right sound out of the drum (keeping in mind I have nice drums) and all I did was tighten them to a point and tested it out, sounded magnfique.

        If you do not own this head yet; well... you should haha!

        Thank you for reading.

        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

            Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

            Evans makes fine heads and this is a very high-tech example. Terrific quality. I am a novice though and still learning about tuning. I tried this as a snare batter and never could achieve the described sound. I have two very high quality snares, metal and wood. In both cases, I ended up going back to simple single ply traditional heads and using other means to dampen ring and solidify tone. Try and experiment for yourself.

                    I purchased a 14x6 Tama Bubinga S.L.P. Snare at Guitar Center and was open to recommendations for a snare head. The clerk recommended this with a Hazy 300 for snare side. My best description for it is that it eliminates all of the unwanted overtones and ring but allows the drum to breathe and speak freely. It's loud and it can cut but it isn't irritating. Quite possibly the best snare head I have purchased and I have bought several types from Remo, Evans, and Aquarian.

                      This head replaced my previous horrible sounding clear pinstripe snare head. And this was a huge improvement. It is way, way bouncier than the pinstripe. I can do double stroke rolls so much better on this head. It also improved the overall sound quality greatly. It kills lots of the nasty overtones, but it doesn't deaden the sound at all. The drum is still as lively as can be. Rim shots and rim clicks also sound way better. It is also very sensitive. I would recommend this head to anyone for any musical application.

                        I am newer to drumming. Been playing about 2 years. This is the first time I have tried this head.

                        First thing I noticed is it seemed harder to get a good sound out of on my Tama Superstar 14"x4.5" birch snare. I had to crank the bottom head even further to get it to sound more alive again.

                        It feels nice when hitting it and now after some tuning experimentation, it sounds great. I'll probably get it again unless I find a sweet deal on something else that I find interesting.

                            This head came as a bonus with a pack of EC2s, which I was putting on a refurbished Pearl Forum that has a beadless 6" seamed steel snare drum. The drum as it came to me was covered with moon gels. Without them, the drum had an annoying after-ring, like hitting a bell.

                            I think I'd probably hate this head on my better snare drum, but on this particular drum it did the trick to tame the ring.

                            One thing to note, however, is that if you dampen the edges of the dead (as this head does) rim shots sound kind of like hitting a 55 gallon can. This head can tame and overly ringy drum, but if you like to do rim shots, move to the right on the Evans head scale.
