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

          Evans have always been tops in my book. Crisp snare, good thuddy toms and bass drum.

          Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

          I am a Jazz/Big Band drummer. I have been playing and teaching professionally for 30+ years - from small accoustic trios to 18-piece big bands. I normally play 5.5x14 metal shelled snare drums. I use the Genera Dry on snare drums that do not have internal mufflers. It eliminates excessive ring, yet still will resonate playing off center toward the rim. It works very well on my Ludwig LM400 and Yamaha SD-295. I will use the regular Genera on my vintage drums which generally have an internal muffler. It is a sensitive single ply 10mil head with a good coating which works well for brushes. It has an underside ring control just like the Genera. Only difference are the small holes around the edge which eliminate some additional ring. Think of the Genera line as being a G1 and the HD line as being a G2 but with tone control. I have traditionally used coated Remo Ambassadors on my snare drums for years. I just like the sound of the Evans Genera Dry and/or Genera coated heads better.

          Should be called extra dry!

          About Me Experienced

          Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

          I tried this head on a few different snares and I have to say that I was absolutely amazed at how dry it was. I like a tiny bit of ring in my snares, yet controlled and this head killed almost all of the tone in the drum. It sounded like a really thick cardboard box. If you are going for a 70s dead snare tone then this will do the trick and then some. Its super easy to tune because there really isn't much tone to tune in once its on. It really wasn't for me and I got rid of it after 5 minutes of use. If you are like me and want the ring very controlled but still want to hear the actual drum then try the hd genera dry. I found my head from heaven with that one. For some reason this one was wayyyy to dead for my tastes

              Gives a very nice crisp sound but still retains sensitivity. If tuned high you can get a satisfying crack for pop/rock music or if tuned a little lower you get a nice meaty sound.

                Comments about Evans Genera Dry Batter Snare Head:

                I now have this head on both a low end snare and a high end snare. Normally it takes me hours to tune my snares and hopefully get a sound I really like. It takes me about 30 minutes to get a good sounding snare with this head. Even my low end snare sounds incredible to the point I will use it on stage if I want to. This head leaves just enough overtones to make the drum sing, but with a short sustain. No more muffling of any kind on my snares!

                  This head sounds fantastic! I had previously been using a Remo ambassador coated snare head and with that i would have at least 5 or 6 moongels on at a time. Then when i switched to this i was so impressed. I definitely recommend this head to someone who wants little to no ring on there snare drum.

                    Great drum head. I play punk and rock, lasts a long time and sounds great. Snappy crisp sound and the weather coating makes wear n tear seem like a thing of the past. Highly recommended for drummers that thrash their kit like I do.
