I acquired this head for free from a friend who didn't like it, but I'd imagine it would retail for around $12-14
I usually have a coated G1 on my snare, and it's definitely a head to swear by. But I was genuinely impressed when I slapped this head on my 14x5.5" Pearl Session Custom snare and cranked it up. With a head like this, who needs to play rimshots?! I'm in love with the sheer power of the sound and the nice, meaty "crack" that the head gives when you smack it in the center. The muffle ring and dry vents around the perimeter equalize the head just right, eliminating only the harsh, extraneous overtones. Ghost notes articulate wonderfully, with an even response from edge to center.
Nothing! This is one of the best snare heads on the market, in my opinion. The only thing that some people might not like is that the wires of brushes can get easily caught in the dry vents.
The head is made from two plies and has a muffle ring and dry vents (holes) around the perimeter. It has a very solid feel, especially when tuned high.
If you want to get more out of your snare drum, buy this head! I have confidence that this head can breathe life into any snare drum!It's also a good choice for players like me who want more power without having to play stick-breaking rimshots! The bottom line: BUY IT!
I just bought the Genera HD Dry for my Starclassic Performer BB to replace the Genera G1 coated original, and I admit that there is no picture!
Before the change, I could not get sound (rather dry without resonance but precise). for having tried Ambassador that I wanted to test other models from Evans and I really believe you have found the snare sound so important.
I also replaced my original patch by Puresound 16EQ avoiding any buzz from the toms when the patch is minimal tension so that they do not have a snare sound too dry.

Parasite54's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
With Evans heads on my drums and as I wanted to replace my skin Remo Ambassador I decided to take a Snare Evans. And I can tell you that I did well! This skin is exactly my expectations and my steel snare. (It really brings out the attack on the steel, all its power and high)
The skin produces a dry (very) and I find it even adds a little treble. It thus has a powerful attack dry without harmonics (there really is not at all). It therefore represents a powerful play like rock, alternative, progressive, neo metal ... To me it sound ideal, but beware! ... I saw on the forum baguetterie particular that many people disliked him. They have blamed their lack of harmonics, because it really is not and that's what I like (among others). It does not correspond at all to jazz, country, or any other music that needs a snare with good sustain, harmonics, and an attack in the midrange.
Furthermore it seems very durable hat, at least she got la'aire good handle shocks, compared to the ambassador who loses gift sanding at high speeds (in the middle of the snare).
It's been about two weeks that I use, I find its value for normal price ... Finally, it is more expensive than average skins (17 euro 50 on the internet) but it is good quality and it is a double ply sanded which explains this.
In any case with the experience that I would do on that choice. No doubt Evans is widely Remo, I really like their skins. on the other hand I would really test the Aquarians, because they are reputable.
Ps: look carefully at the photo above, she is pierced all around do not be surprised! But at the geule (I think)
