I have this head on a Pork Pie Big Black Brass Drum, and I must say that it is the best part of my set other than the snare itself. The precision and dryness of the attack sings, but doesn't choke or wind the drum. Its sensitive, but can take a serious beating. Tune it high for ultra precise ghost notes and rolls, or low for a fat "TAK" sound any harder playing musician would love. I refuse to play with anything less. The porting is a must! It allows the snare to play unhindered by dampening while still maintaining the ring perfectly.

I got the reverse power dot snare head a while back and it was amazing, i had to replace it and was told that this head was great, and i was sadly mislead, Could Not Hear My Own Ghost Notes! Did not provide me with Power, Pop, and Dynamic Control, This Snare head has taken away my groovy power drumming, im definitely getting the reverse power dot back, If you need a head to provide High Attack with a Brighter Pop, and perfect for playing anywhere from LIGHT Ghostnotes to LOUD Dominance, the Reverse Power Dot is the way to go

Not For Me

By Chris P

from Chantilly, VA

Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

I was looking for a batter head that brought down the sustain and overtones a bit, but this head completely sucked the life out of my drum. I believe that that is the intent of this head design, which is why I rated it 5 stars. I think it was just a poor head choice on my part. So if you're looking for that short, fat, crack with zero ring, this is the head. That's just not the sound I'm going for.

That studio snare sound you've been looking for - in any situation!

By JP LeClair

from Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

Oh man, this head rocks. You get this nice, fat, sticky, dry attack/tone without the need for dampers and/or tape. Tune it up and start rockin! I have a Pork Pie Big Brass snare, tuned around medium. I get this awesome snare sound without all the ringing. If ringing is what you want, this head isn't for you. But if you like that studio snare sound - this is it. It's not a choked sound at all... just the attack, snare and depth. Highly recommended.

Killer Sound, AMAZING Price

By kevdrummer28

from Duncanville, Texas

Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

This is beyond doubt the only snare head that I will ever use. Once I heard it I wasen't going to use anything else. Pretty much for whatever you're playing, this head can make it sound good. Buy it because it's good and has an awesome price tag.

OH MY GOD

By LudwigEvans4drumss

from Sharon, MA

Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

This is the perfection of snare heads. I bought a Pearl piccolo, which is an excellent snare, but it wasn't quite doing it for me. I tried about three other Remo heads heads, which all sounded essentially the same; generic, amateurish, boring, and I tried so many tunings, but still really lousy. I threw this on, and without any attempt at tuning, it sounded clean and poppy. I've used that particular head for a year, and I've used Evans heads ever since, and its the best decision I've ever made. I love this, along with the Reverse Dot, which I use for my thicker snare. Have no doubts, buy this head, and you'll have no troubles with your snare again.

Awesome head

By Luis Suarez

from Monterrey, NL

Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

This head is made for drummers that want a very dry sound in their snare sound without that ringy sound. The best part is that the sound you obtain is very natural with a very pleasant tone since there is no need to use a dampening ring, just the head and that's it, perfect sound. The best choice if seeking for a dry sound.

Amazing Snare Head!

By Andrew Bridges

from Pensacola Fl

Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

I bought a really cheap Pacific Drums picalo snare and regretted because i couldn get the sound i wanted out of it. I went to go buy a new snare when my Guitar Center Rep told me about this head. Immediately I fell in love with it. Great dry Pop sound and not muck tuning is needed. I wont use another snare head. Buy this you wont regret it!

Really Durable

By The Prestige Drummer

This is one of the most durable snare heads ever to made. This head has a nice fat sound to it, and it last a really long time. I've had this head for a year now and it still sounds great. You can't go wrong with this head.I highly recommend it to any drummer.
