I have owned this head for a couple of weeks now and they look and sound gorgeous with no sign of wear and tear. Nice Mid tone sound that has a crack that could be heard around the world. I matched it with its snare head product which gives out NO overtones! So it is very nice on the ears.

What I found with these heads were that they are very easy to tune, took me 5 mins to get the right sound out of the drum (keeping in mind I have nice drums) and all I did was tighten them to a point and tested it out, sounded magnfique.

If you do not own this head yet; well... you should haha!

Thank you for reading.

I bought this about 6 months ago and I would agree with the description of it to a T. It is exactly as described in every way. I feel for my taste it is a little too dry and heavy. I like my snare sound to have a bit of play with the tone, but with this head you won't get it. It's either on or off no in between (so to speak). Not bad for heavy hitters and hard rock/metal music but for an all around sound go with soething different maybe just a g2 coated. Good luck

      Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

      Based on the comments/reviews I changed out my old Remo Weather King with the this head - a fantastic choice... Extremely well made. The sound is incredible and the head practically tunes itself... No overtones. No dead/mushy areas... A solid crack if you need one and since i purchased the coated head, it's also great for delicate brush work that I like to do... I couldn't be happier... I'll never go back to anything else.

                  So far so great. Haven't had this head long enough to say how long it will last, but it sounds perfect. It has a very crisp sound and tunes very easily.

                  Comments about Evans Genera HD Dry Batter Coated Snare Head:

                  I've had a 14x6.5 Gretsch Catalina Birch snare that has been impossible to get a decent tone from. I've tried everything to tame the out-of-balance wavering BOIOIOING for 5 years. The bearing edge is a bit wonky, but not as bad as the drum has sounded.
                  I bought some Fiberskyn heads to go on my toms for an upcoming theatre production of My Way, a Sinatra retrospective to add a bit more authenticity to my kit. I neede a coated head for brushwork and took a stab at the Genera HD Dry Coated. Like magic it settled the bad seal, focused the tone and dried it out perfectly!
                  I've never used another head on that snare AND outfitted my Chad Smith Signature with the same. Excellent head by an excellent company shipped by an excellent vendor!

                    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.

                    It is a good skin. I'm playing on a Black Beauty 14x8. The snare sounds fine, nothing amazing. But, certainly does the job.
