      OVERVIEW

      The old rules no longer apply.

      The Evans Hybrid Coated Snare Drum Batter Head, originally baptized on the football field, is a drumhead that is durable to the extreme, yet does not sacrifice sensitivity. This is a result of the use of 2 unique high-tensile fibers, one chosen for flexibility and the other for durability. The snare batter drumhead answers the wishes of heavy rockers, delivering heightened attack and unprecedented resistance to breaking. The most durable of Evans heads, the hybrid coated snare drumhead offers an intriguing aesthetic. A layer of Evans' unique "frosted" coating allows the gray twill inner weave to clearly show through.

      The Evans Hybrid Snare Drum Batter head borrows from its revolutionary sister, the Hybrid Marching Snare Batter and, thus, is the most durable of Evans' drum set heads and is already in use by metal drummers Bobby Jarzombek and Mike Wengren. These artists are delighting in having a drumhead that provides such extreme durability and attack without sacrificing feel or sensitivity.

      The Evans Hybrid Snare Drum Batter head answers the prayers of heavy hitters. Evans has not only given them an exceptionally durable head; it has provided a drumhead that projects better across a wide dynamic range.


      Feel, sensitivity, projection, and durability... all rolled into one head.

        Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Snare Drum Batter Head:

        I was replacing the drum heads on my drum, and going from clear, to black color heads. I was a little apprehensive about getting a black snare head, until my brother found this gray-ish one. It is a little expensive for a snare head, but is well worth the money. It is durable, and can play heavy on it, or even light and articulate snare etudes. Definitely my favorite upgrade yet.

        Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Snare Drum Batter Head:

        I use this head on a custom nickel over brass drum. Previously I have used a g2, so when I received this head I was expecting it to be more focused than previous heads. Its a little too focused and im still trying to get used to it, although I would say it has a sound that a lot of people could be happy with. Being in a cover band one of the biggest issues is durability. I hit hard and play two - four hour shows every weekend. For as much as the tone is not perfect to my ears, I will continue to use this head because I don't have to worry about bringing a back up....for the batter side that is

          Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Snare Drum Batter Head:

          This head is amazing! It is especially great for hard hitters like myself, but it is also a very good head for brushes. It's very responsive and sensitive, ghost notes are so clear and clean sounding. This head is good in any type of concert or recording setting. It tunes easily and has a great overall sound.

                  Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Snare Drum Batter Head:

                  This head is DURABLE but I haven't found many uses for it. If tuned high it loses an incredible amount of tone and body that was not pleasing to me or my bands. For me, that's a big con. Medium tuning sounds great though, with better response than some other high end snare heads. For the price and lack of versatility, I unfortunately have to give it an average rating. It does not have the tuning range or general tone I personally like. Keep it simple and a bit cheaper.

                      I play every single day on this batter head and after a YEAR this head still performs.
                      I play punk , with alot of fast snare parts so this thing get a workout.
                      Lasts as long as 3 normal heads easy.

                      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Snare Drum Batter Head:

                      This is by far the best snare head i have used, when tuned up nicely, it produces a loud crack, and i was surprised to find that it is also sensitive, so it's great for ghost noting and such. Since it is a mix between kevlar and a regular head, it is also very durable, i have had mine for about 4 months and there is barely a sign of wear at all.
