I took the challenge from the guys at Evans. I swapped out my trusted single ply coated head favorite for this head and was instantly smiling. The range of tuning on the Genera Dry snare head is great, the coating is durable, and the drum sounds great.
This makes an amazing difference. I used it to replace a stock snare head, which I had damped with Moongel and still wasn't happy with. (The gel did its job, but I still didn't like the tone, and there were overtones I didn't like, either.) This made an immediate difference. It tuned up perfectly and seems to hold its tune well, and it is perfectly damped. The tone is snappy and powerful, and to me, the amount of ringing and overtones (very little) is perfect. The head responds well to stick dynamics and just sounds great. Also looks cool.
