Overview

EC Reversed Dot snare heads come with a unique "reversed dot" made with the same 3mil material as the ring. Each head consists of a 7mil top ply and 10mil bottom ply for maximum durability, especially with the reversed dot version (which totals 20mils thick at its center). This features the sophisticated edge control system that banishes unwanted overtones.

A translucent frosted coating lends a unique, attractive look. Despite the head's relative thickness, it has a forgiving feel; ghost notes project tremendously well; rim shots offer a "tweaked" palette of rich overtones; and center-of-the-head strokes yield fat, focused tones. The stress-relieved reversed dot patch has the unique effect of eliminating some mid-range frequencies, yielding a desirable crack in all tuning ranges.

For snare drums it's particularly effective and yields a pre-EQ'd sound that will please both player and sound engineer.

This is an amazing head. I had the worst snare ever. It was one of those stock ones that comes with me pearl set and it had this horrible ring on the stock head that came with it and I could never get that nice pop and crack with it. I put this head on and there was no more ring and I got that crack I was looking for. The only reason I gave the quality a 4.5 was because there were a few small holes in it when I got it. But other than that, this is the perfect head to buy if you want to make your bad snare sound alot better.

I play Jazz, Hiphop and Neo Soul mostly. I couldn't get the sound i wanted from this head. Really beefy, hardly any snap. Has a "honk" to it no matter how i tune it. Also rings quite a bit. Had to use two moon gels just to have it be listenable. This head would sound good for rock or country, but jazz guys, BEWARE.

Great crack and durability!

By Fred Davis

from Indianapolis,IN

I use a 1980's vintage Ludwig Acrolite snare for gigs. The Evans EC Reversed Dot Coated Snare Batter Head really cracks on this drum!Rim shots really cuts through! The band and other drummers who hear/play it love it.After 1 1/2 years it hardly shows any wear.Stays in tune well. Behind the kit,recorded on a camcorder or a professionally recorded cd at the gig,the sound of this head is simply awesome!

Nice

By Anthony Brown

from Morganfield, KY

This snare head is awesome when i play live the sound techs are please with it easy to e.Q as they told me. also when i play my ghost notes it projects it out like i want it too especially on my bands recordings it cuts through pretty good has that loud attack when u need it also with brushes you have that great swoosh sound that i was looking for i recommend this for all styles of drummers.

Not great for metal snare

By AARON MARTINEZ

from East Moline IL

Overall this head looks appealing, but when I put it on, it was hard to tune and on my pearl export snare I was unhappy with the sound. The "unwanted overtones" were not banished. Very durable and I'm sure if you have a good snare you can find a good sound.

Best head, nuff said.

By Maggie

from Walnut Cove, NC

I had been using a PDP stock head for months. My snare rang A TON and I thought there was actually something wrong with the drum. But when I put this head on, there was no more ringing or rattling from the snare wires. My snare sounds absolutely GODLY with this head. Evans never disappoints!

Amazing

By Jessy

from Joshua Tree, CA

This is the best snare head ever! I was sick of always getting heads that dont sound good and ones that do but will start denting or rip after like a month. I had this head about four months now and it still sounds great. I recomend this if your a hard hitter or a soft hitter!

Awesome

By Bradley

from Macon, Ga.

Great head! Snare has a great deep sound that is perfect for the country band I play in. Have had everyone in the band comment on how awesome my snare sounds with the new Evans head. I have not put one on my aux. snare yet, but I will order it next and I'm sure it will sound just as good cranked up to a higher tuning...no need for any dampening! Awesome!

awesome

By Andrew

from Madawaska, ME

I have this head for a while and the head itself sounds amazing. When I tuned the head for the first time putting it on my snear drum, it sounded amazing. I suggest getting the reverse dot snear head over a regular head.

Great on snare, great on toms!

By Cole M.

from Tulsa, OK

This drumhead is really good on snare. Especially if you don't have microphones. It sounds really good without any mics or anything. I was messing around and put the 14 in on my floor tom for my Gretsch catalina jazz shell pack and i have an ebony ambassador as the reso. The two heads sound amazing together!!! I use just a regular white coated on my snare and the ec2 on my floor tom. I really want to buy a 12 inch head for my rack tom.

Pop and Crack

By Cameron

from Aliso Viejo, ca

The skin made my junk snare sound a lot better than it did but I don't have the crack that I want. I can't do rim shots it doesn't work. besides those two things it is a great head.
