      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 bought these for my 13" & 14" snare drums. I previously had the Evans reverse dot but didn't get the bounce nor sound I wanted. These heads deliver a crisp clearer sound with a beautiful pop. Has great rebound effect for smooth drumming especially for playing ghost notes, rolls, and pulling out multiple beats. Overall it's a step up of the original G2 heads and much better than the muddy sound I was getting with the reverse dot heads. Best of all, no dampening is needed and there's no extended ringing or overtones.

            Evans definitly has a winner with this one. Have used it for two weeks and has held up to my heavy style of playing. Sounds amazing too. Would highly recommend this head to any drummer novice or pro.

              This head is great. If you are looking for a head that will get rid of a lot of overtones from your snare then this is the head for you. Tune it up high and it has a loud crack that won't get lost in guitars and the mix.

                  I play in a southern rock band and this head hit the sweet spot! Great response with almost no ring or sustain, just full on beat-keeping power. I have a pork pie "big black" used a drum dialer to tune it in, 80 on the resonator 90 on the batter, girls were gushing through their panties. Love it!

                      Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

                      I have tried several heads from Evans and Remo trying to get "just the right sound". For the past few years, both my snares have had Remo Coated Powerstoke 3 heads. They provided the full sound that I wanted, without too much ring - though there was still enough that I used moongels on them. After continuously reading reviewing and trying out heads, I decided to try one of these and I'm never going back! IT IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT on my Pearl Omar Hakim Signature Snare Drum. I like my snares tuned tight top and bottom (about 87-90 with a drum dial). I pulled off the old head, tightened this bad boy down and it was magic! The tighter I tuned it, the better it got. There is zero ring, and the sound is perfectly snappy, yet full. I can't stop playing it! I will be buying another for my Pearl SMX-1455S Session Custom Maple Snare right after posting this comment!

                      BTW, I've been shopping with MF since about 2006, and I've never posted a review on anything (laziness I guess), but I had to comment on this head. It is exactly what I've been looking for. Enjoy your purchase!

                          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.
