Bought to 'cure' a cheap snare
27.06.2016
This is more about the 'features' of this drum head which does actually do exactly what it is supposed to do, but I didn't get on with it in the end, it was an experiment.

Yes, it dampens and deadens a ringing steel snare, but then maybe don't use a steel snare or get a better one with a middle ring or a little more mass to it? Yes it is durable and allows you a better tuning range for a drum which usually would ring when taken to high, but at the loss of other qualities which other heads preserve.

Basically I had to tune up to get the musicality and responsiveness out of it to counteract the dead character it introduces which defeats the point somewhat. A bit of a gimmick/one trick pony maybe for me, others may love it though.

Looks and sounds great.
06.08.2015
I have always played with a power centre snare head for the increased attack and availability of different tones but this head actually packs an equally strong attack. It was bought purely for aesthetic reasons and has turned out to actually sound superb and is very very durable too. When playing more aggressively the head does not mark unless you have poor technique or you are hitting it ridiculously hard. I like my snare to be more open (slight ring) and this suits very well indeed. I haven't needed to dampen the head at all. It also brings a degree of warmth to your drum, a well rounded sound that comes from the hydraulic range. I would highly recommend this snare head, I bought it purely because it looked cool, but it has certainly surprised me.

Great head for this application...
Myles, 12.08.2015
Volume is ofetn a problem in smaller venues, and while I recognise this was not the application Evans had in mind when they launched this - but it does in fact work very well here. I have thge head on Gretcsh 14"x5.5" snare and have it slightly de-tunned. I don't use any other dampeneing, and it has a great resonat sound but isn't so agressive that it blots the sound landscape. I've recommended to other drummers, and they've had the same experience.

Effect but too thick
ViktorM, 30.03.2016
It is very nice color and catchy look, but it is simply too thick.
In low tuning is quite heavy to obtain clean sound since it can't resonate as thinner drumhead. In other tuning seems too dull, without charachter. I would say it was try and error, but it ended as error. It may be good only for heavy hitters because this could laste for some time, but easier playing could not benefit at all.
