        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 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.

              Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

              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.

                Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

                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.

                      The reduced ring & overtones are what attracted me to this head. It stays true to it's description. My snare drum has never sounded better! Innovative science & functionality...I highly recommend this product!

                            so I wanted to try yet another snare head to find the sound I was going for on my new tams alp power maple snare drum and I came across the genera hd dry coated heads on the site here. I read a bunch of the reviews which raved about the head being so good so I bought 2 of them and tried them out. It took about 5 minutes to get it tuned, using 2 keys and turning them in pairs until it felt right and it was done! On a tune bot I was around 280 top and 320 bottom and I couldn't believe the sound. I always shoot for that ambassador or emperor or g2 coated head with a little piece of moon gel which gives me a fat tone with just a tiny bit of ring and this head did it all by itself! Needless to say I turned around and bought 10 of them to put on all of my snares. I have never seen one head capable of sounding good on all of my snares but again I was surprised by this one. Yes it sounded good on all of my snares. The funny thing is that I tried the regular genera dry and absolutely hated it. It sounded dead and not unlike hitting a thick cardboard box. The bottom line is this..these reviews...are spot on! Try this head out and see if it works for you, especially if you have a finicky drum thats difficult to tune or a drum that you have tried a bunch of heads on and are still unable to get sounding the way you want it to sound. This could be your savior!

                            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.

                              This Genera HD Dry Batter Head was a free gift with my order :) Now if they would just start sending thank you logo stickers again...hint, hint, hint. Always pleased with everything we order from Musician's Friend
