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.
