    Default Evans EC Reverse Dot and 500 Snare side

    First time trying out the EC Reverse Dot batter head with a 500 snare side head from Evans. Typically I always play the Genera Dry or the HD Dry with a 300. So far I love the different ranges and sound. I just threw this video together quick of some different tuning options. Let me know what you think and what heads do you use?!

    Noice.

    For me, snare heads are nearly always Remo Coated Ambassador batter with hazy downstairs.

    I've never warmed up to the EC reverse dot heads. They sound too doh-ing gongy to me.

    You should edit the video to just show the hitting of the snare with each tune. By the time you play a bunch, the effect of the other tunes is forgotten, at least in my experience.

    I will say the super high tuning sounded best with that top head, IMHO.

    I agree with Bish, super tight sounds best.
