Perfection

By Alex

from Bloomington, IL

Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

This snare head is absolutely spectacular! it is amazingly durable and is louder than any other head I've played on but it is still very sensitive at lower volumes. It is perfection in a snare head and worth the hefty price tag by far. probably save you money because this thing seems more solid than my metal snare

Amazing!!

By Jeff

from New Lenox, Illinois

Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

Although i do not own this I play snare in drumline at my school and we use these and they are amazing. They sound awesome and bounce really easy. They are also really long lasting. My school hasn't had to replace them in a long time.

Unexpected thriller

By Craig

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

I wouldn't have ever thought to try this head. I ordered a custom snare online and as I opened the package I saw this. They sent the Evans Hybrid snare head and I didn't know what to expect. I took the snare out of the box and tuned it a bit. It feels like a substantial, thick skin. Tuning was fairly easy, and I noticed that even though it was thick, it was still VERY plyable. I usually use the Remo controlled sound or Emporer X, but I figured I'd give this head a chance. WOW! Not only was it more versatile than I thought, but it was SENSITIVE. When I laid into it, a fat and woody bark came out. I have had a chance to play this head in every situation possible: cover gigs, church, and in a super high engery LOUD alt-rock band. In all situations this head absolutely blew me away. I would do soft ghost notes near the edges and it was SUPER warm and sensitive. I would do rim shots all day and just a huge, woody, round fat tone would come. You can FEEL your snare with this head on. I have had it for about 4 months now, and there is no signs of wear. None. Only in the reflection of a light can you barely see stick marks on this thing. I am very impressed with this, and I think it is worth $$$ for its sound, feel, and durability. Get one.

      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

      I have used the K series heads for rock drumming since the nineties. Thought I might give this a try since I like some of the other heads Evans has out. The weight is pretty similar to the K series so it looks like it will last a while. The K series has a little bit of a higher pitched snap to them which might be a reason more drummers don't go for those. I've always just learned to like the sound of them. This Evans head is definitely a more damped crack but still sounds pretty nice. I'm still trying to get used to it but I've got near 20 years of history with the Ks to overcome. I'm using this on an old Tama Rockstar metal snare. Have never had a problem with the extra tension.

      Great but not golden.

      By Ryan White

      from Emmett, Idaho

      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

      This hybrid head is very good. It was easy to tune and it is very loud. It is a little short on the attack while the tone goes away very quickly. While it's very novel, I don't think it's 50.00 dollars novel. I hope the durability justifies the cost. Overall, 4 stars!

      The best drumhead I've played ever !

      By bryan mullen

      from Jackson, MS

      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

      I got wind of this drumhead from a metal drummer, although it was pricey, I took a chance. This drumhead is worth every penny and some. I have a Ludwig Acrolite snare. The original sound is sweet, but I wanted to crank out more from it. When I installed the Evans Hybrid , as far as I was concerned I had a brand new snare drum , Meaner,more powerful, and a crazy rimshot . Buy this head, you will not be disappointed !

      This head man...

      By Viktor Pacheco

      from New York, NY

      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

      I was a little scared of spending $50 on a snare head, but I have no regrets. My snare drum sings and is super sensative. I am a huge fan of ghost notes and this head brings every single one to life. Amazing head. Spend the money and grab one.

      AMAZING

      By Denver Morrow

      from Colorado

      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

      When you take this snare head out of the box it looks so flimsy like it is a cheap snare but once you start to tighten it on your snare it just becomes so amazing like a sound you have never heard before. This snare will stay on my drumset until it breaks!

      What!

      By bradley

      from Akron, Ohio

      Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

      I have had this head for a year and a couples months now and it still sounds as if it just came right out of the box. I am amazed by it's sound and durability. This head stay in tune for a long time once you get it just right. I am honestly astounded. Lastly, I find it amazing how I can go from heavy stuff to jazz in an instant with this head; ghost notes are my fav.

        Great head. Super heavy, loud, and, just as described, durable. I've had it for 6 months now with at least and hour of practice daily and there are no dents. There is a smooth spot where I hit, but that's expected. Still sounds great and I expect it to last at least another few months. Will buy again!

            Best sounding snare head I have found.

            By MIchael

            from S.L.C., UT

            Site Member

            Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

            I love the sound. It has a nice studio depth at the center, and if you want a little more ring, just hit midway between the center and the rim. I had to adjust my rim shots a little, because they are more damped as you get to the center of the snare. Cross sticking works great because the drum edge of the stick is close to the resonant zone of the head. I haven't had this head long enough to attest to it's durability (but plenty of other people have). I love the sound of this head.

            EXCELLENT

            By Dylan

            from Denver, Colorado

            Comments about Evans Hybrid Coated Batter Head:

            Everything about this snare head is immaculate. The sound, the dynamics, the unusual texture, even the appearance of it looks sleek. I don't know what those two certain fibers are that are intertwined with one another, but they deliver great justice in the name of Evans. I did not run into a single problem installing this jem, and got her sounding marvelous within 5 minutes. I have never experienced such intense rebound from striking a stick down on a snare (besides a marching snare), this easily beats all. You can clearly distinguish each individual note played regardless of speed, which is great as I utilize the gravity blast technique. With my old snare, doing so would create a loud, blurred together sound. With this head, you can clearly hear 32nd notes within a reasonable tempo, or as fast as I can play anyway. So far, I haven't noticed any wear and tear, let alone marks on the snare since I have had it, which was an unusual surprise for me as I relentlessly beat my drum set when playing it, typically breaking my sticks within a week or two. It seriously looks brand new as it did out of the box. I cannot imagine I will be buying a new head within the year at this rate, something I never would anticipate with any drum head, but this one takes the cake. Overall, perfect, crisp and clear tone, outstanding quality, and it looks good. If I am to break this snare head, I will be back for more.
