For many years I used Ludwig X-Thin as snare drum resonant head .... I LOVE THIS SOUND, is sensitive and clear ... perfect !!!

When my X-Thin Ludwig snare side tried broke Evans Hazy 300 (300 mils thick as Ambassador snare side Remo or Aquarian Classic Clear). The sound of my boxes turned semi-metal like plastic, unnatural;, drier and less buzz. Finally I ended up removing the Evans Hazy 300 and buying Aquarian Classic Clear (has the same roughly 300 thousand but better sensitivity).

In my view, for its versatility for all styles, it is preferable to use (cost the same):

1. Ludwig X-Thin
2. Aquarian Classic Clear snare side
3. Remo Diplomat snare hazy.
3. Remo Ambassador snare hazy.

With any of these get better sensitivity in the snare wires at any volume dynamics and in any type of snare drum (wood, metal or acrylic).

Head will break at high tensions

      Comments about Evans Hazy 300 Snare Side:

      I've used Evans 200 and 300 bottom snare side heads over the years when I could not find my go to Remo Hazy snare side. I was very disappointed each time. The tone of Evans bottom head sounds muted, nasally...like the drum has a cold. It has to be the chemistry of the mylars in the head that for me, just does not produce a pleasing response or tone. Just tried tuning up the bottom Evans head on my new Mapex Wraith snare to a fairly high tension. It it popped even though the tension rods did not feel like they were even close to being maxed out.
      I Will never use Evans bottom snare heads again....I tried.

            Comments about Evans Hazy 300 Snare Side:

            I bought this for the resonant snare side due to the reviews it got and how it was suppsoed to make my snare sound better. Well I put it on the snare and every time I tightened it, it kept making a crackling noise. I thought it was the new wood hoops I was installing. Long story short, I tightened down to the tone of my other snare (Sonor Maple the same model I currently have with a different lug hardware, but the same...I have 2 of them because they sound that great) and it made a loud snap, and the head was broken at one of the lug points. So I put back on the cheap 9-10 year old Remo UT head that the Sonor snare came with and it worked great! Pretty sad when the one that comes with the snare is better than the Evans one I paid extra for. I use nothing but Evans heads, but I will not be buying this one ever again! Very disappointed!

                I paired this head with a Genera HD with great results on both a DW solid maple (Craviotto) and Ludwig Super-Sensitive knock-off steel snare. I like the Evans snare heads and will likely keep replacing my aged resonant heads with the Hazy 300.

                    My 3 snares all have this reso head in play and I couldnt be happier. Its the perfect thickness for the sound I wanted but could never quite get with either the thicker or the thinner heads by another manufacturer.
                    Try it - - you will love it~!

                        MF asked me to write a review, so here it is. The Evans snare-side head is as good as any. The Level 360 technology doesn't really come into play here because snare-side heads are generally tensioned as tight as they go. I like the Evans G1 on the batter side, and got this because it matches, but truthfully the Evans snare-side is no better or no worse than snare-side heads by Remo or Aquarian.

                            At MF prices for a 14" snare side head, this a very good and cheap upgrade for your snare. Comparable Remo heads will do the same, but Evans is my preference. Definitely way better than the snare side head that came with my snare drum.
