      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

          The Genera HD Dry gives me exactly what I want in a snare head; Control. I don't have to use Duck tape or any other type of 'muffling' device in order to get the sound I want. I get a dry, real snare sound out of my 12-in. Hipgig snare. It's a perfect sound and quality right out of the box and the durability is outstanding. I use a 14 on my practice kit snare as well. The engineers I work with love them too. They know I can tweak the snare for sound, but the dry-ness will remain. It's the only snare head I've used since it came out. Evans is the only head for the rest of my kits too.

            Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

            .........and it works, too. Recently, I placed these on two very different snares with equally fantastic results, a Tama SLP G-maple and a Trixon 14 x 5.5 inch, hammered copper. (No, that's not a typo. Google Trixon. It's an interesting story. And I assure you, that drum is the nicest piece of work you will EVER find at twice the price!) Anyway, throw out your duct tape, felt strips, gooey, plastic snot-wads and put this head on any snare you've got, (excepting maybe an aluminum snare as they are often dry enough.) I assure you, you will be pleased and amazed. Ring out - tone in. Big bash or ghost notes, it doesn't matter. The thing just sounds great.

              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.
