Great Head

By Daniel

from Durham, NC

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

This head is great if you are looking to get rid of all the High End Screachy Overtones, but still have a lively head that isnt dull and lifeless. I use this head on my 7x13 Tama Maple Artwood Limited, and it sounds good at all kinds of different tunings, although I prefer the sound this head proivides at High Tension tunings. Even if you Prefer Remo Drum heads (or some other brand) for all the rest of your drums like me, this is an exceptional head and you won't find another like it.

Get it, Buy it, Borrow it. Just play it.

By SacredSinner

from St. pete, Fl

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

I think this drum head is one of the better heads i have used, it has that dry feeling that you can really get into. And it cracks like a bullwhip when your doing rimshots, and sounds extremely nice when you are rolling, doing flams, hitting it as hard as you can, and doing blast beats. I love this head and its not too expensive i have had it for about two months now and its showing some wear, but its nowhere near its breaking point.

WOW!!!

By poppy stuff

from SF, CA

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

I just got this head today, making my official transition from remo to evans, and I am just stunned. If you tune it s\tight you get a really nice poppy snare sound, while if it is looser, you get a lamb of god-ish metal pop. I played on just my snare for thirty minutes straight because i loved the sound so much. this is by far the best choice of snare head out there

Look no further!

By Matt

from Katy TX

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

I have tried all sorts of snare heads out there and none have come close to this head. I have used this head for over a year now and i will never change. Match this head with the Hazy 300 then torque your tuners way up and hold on to your throne because its gonna blow you away! The crack this head makes cuts through any levels of music in any environment. A must have for live or studio play.

Amazing!

By Robert

from Harleysville

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

I've bought this head twice now because it's just so great! First I picked one up for a cheap Ludwig Accent snare and immediately the difference was noticeable. A few months later I bought one again for my '68 Ludwig Supraphonic and it brought it back to life! I used to have a Remo Powerstroke3 head on it and it rang and buzzed just a little too much. But with this head, it really sang. Despite it being a really thick head, I was able to tune it nice and tight just how I like it, didn't have any trouble at all. And even though it says "dry" it really doesn't give a dead sound at all. It's bright, warm, and poppy, and pretty much perfect for either studio or live settings.

Best Crack You Can Buy

By Chris Evans =)

from Arnold, Maryland

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

I bought this head for my 14 inch Gretsch catalina maple snare. And i tuned it real.....alomst low and washy, practically static like. Like an old civil war snare. And it was clean fun for hours to play around on. But i am in a touring band right now. And we mostly play Metal hardcore proggresive kind of stuff. And once i was done fiddiling with it. I Tuned it real high. REAL HIGH. to get that nice crack i desire. Slapped a moon gel on it. And its......amazing. Undescribeable. The overtone ring does what it said it would. Get this head

VERY CLEAN SOUND, BUT NOT THE LOUDEST...

By KEN LAPI

from HANOVER, PA

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

I TRIED THIS SNARE HEAD TO SEE HOW IT COMPARED TO THE STANDARD HD GENERA, THIS ONE BEING THE DRY WITH THE HOLES TO ELIMINATE OVERTONES. IT IS VERY CLEAN SOUNDING, BUT NOT AS LOUD AS I HOPED. THE HOLES TAKE RESONATION OUT OF THE HEADS, TOP AND BOTTOM. WHICH HELPS WITH OVERTONES, BUT ALSO STOPS THE SNARE BEADS FROM GETTING THAT FIERCE CRACK I GET OUT OF THE STANDARD HD! BOTH ARE IN MY OPINION THE BEST SNARE HEADS, BUT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WICKED CRACK, GO WITH THE STANDARD HD GENERA BATTER, AND USE SNOT OR GEL PADS ON TOP AND BOTTOM.

Great Versatile Drum Head

By Ryan Bowers

from Reading, PA

Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

I have this head on my Tama Star Custom B/B 14x5.5 snare and my Ludwig Black Beauty 14X6.5 snare drum. They dry out the drum real well and help out in live settings. I find the heads to produce more volume, which means I don't have to worry about miking the snare drum. I use Remo Emperor clear resonant heads on the bottom which gives just enough ring so the drum doesn't sound dead. Tuning is a breeze and they are extremely durable.

    Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

    I particularly like the sound, feel and overall control of the drum head. The sound is so good it feels like I have a new snare. Finally got rid of the ringing and overtone from the old drum head.
