You forgot EC2 and EC1 but I have tried every single head on that list and I'd say HD dry.

I'm currently useing Genera HD over Hazy 300

The G2 coated over the Hazy 300 is a good combo also but i agree the HD dry over Hazy 300 sounds the best

HD Dry and ST Dry over Hazy 300 are what I always used when I using Evans. With an 8" deep snare you might wanna use a Glass 500.

I have the Evans Power Center Reverse Dot batters on most of my snares. If I know that I'll be doing a lot of brush work, I'll change it to an Evans G1 coated for a bit more sensitivity.

I just bought an EC reverse dot hazy with a hazy 300 on the reso and I like it alot. I didn't vote because I use different heads on different snares. I have a Genera dry hd on my 12. not sure what I 'm putting on my 14, prolly a G-plus. Drum heads are like women, they all act different, yet the same.

modern vintage medium weight on the 58 slingerland ply, new orleans special on the supra

EDIT: oh, missed the big EVANS in the title. I don't like their heads. They sound good for a while, then go dead quicker than lightning.

I threw a slightly used Genera HD on my 14x5.5 Tama Artwood maple over the stock Hazy 300 and it turned out pretty nice.

My favorite Evans snare head is the Genera Dry. Not the HD (double ply) version, just the single ply one.

Sounds great.

Evans J1 Etched on the snare. Over an Ambassador weight Snare side.

I have them on a 5x14 COB, 6.5x14 maple dynasonic, and an 8x14 Superten. Very open. Very responsive.
