        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:

        I've been a Remo user for about 7 years before meet Evans. 15 years later, I'm still trusting the quality, consistence and sound improvement of the Evans drumheads. This one is my favorite head for all my snares. Add warmth and "roundness" to all snares of all sizes. Helps to control undesired overtones, but keeping the natural sound of each shell. Very recommended.

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

                        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.
