Years of playing on the famous coated white heads have made me come to appreciate what a great sound it is. What I found when I tried out the G1 with the Power Center is that I get that solid punch in the center without extra overtones that can drive mix engineers mad. When you start to play off center, you get that familiar ring and all of the tone your shell gives off for a bombastic tone perfect for that big brass snare sound.
WHAT I NEEDED!!
I have a vintage Ludwig aluminum snare I haven't been able get isounding very good. I've always used 2 ply heads on my snares but went shopping for a single ply head after some advice from a friend. This was perfect. I like Evans heads so I didn't think I could go wrong with any. This head worked better than I could hope. It really lets the shell resonate more and brought out the character of the drum. It is definitely louder as well. Pairs well with the hazy 300 on bottom.
Finally found it!!!
I have been looking for a batter head to compliment my Tama SLP 14" x 5.5" Steel Snare. I had previously tried the Evans ST, HD, and Genera Dry heads but they were all too dry for my taste. I also tried several Remo heads but couldn't get the feel and sound I was looking for. I recently bought the Power Center Reverse Dot and as soon as I got the head up to tune, I new this was the one. I use 1/4 piece of a moon gel right in the middle of the Evans logo, and I have the sound and feel that I have been looking for. My snare sounds incredible now!!!
