Evans Hybrid Grey Marching Snare Drum Head - Product Information

The Evans Hybrid Grey Marching Snare Drum Head blends two unique high-tensile fibers to achieve only the positive attributes that drum corps, percussion instructors, and players are looking for.

To answer the high-tension requirements demanded by modern drum corps activity, one fiber of the Evans Hybrid Drum Head was chosen for its extreme durability. As a result of its innate strength, this fiber produces the additional benefit of enhanced attack and projection.

The 2nd fiber in the Evans Hybrid Drum Head, however, was chosen for its flexibility and stretch. Its elastic nature allows the hybrid drum head to flex under the impact of drum sticks, producing a significantly softer feel. The inherent "give" in the batter head allows the air column inside the drum to be moved with greater ease, resulting in a more pronounced snare sound, resonance, sensitivity and dynamic range.

High School Head

Comments:

Have these heads on two different size Yamaha drums at two different high schools. These heads have lasted a long time and when put under some quality tension, have a great feel. I did find that at one school the heads are fading faster due to water damage from our indoor season, we get snow, which is to be expected. We will be trying black max heads but will be returning to these if not satisfied with the maxs'.

Great sound, not so great durability

Comments:

I have used the Evans Grey Hybrid heads on my marching lines for close to three years now. They get a beautiful sound, with rich, punchy lows for powerful accents and rimshots and superb articulation to get those technical passages to cut through like a hot knife through butter, but never overpowering to the overall ensemble. They offer a sharp attack regardless of the stick types being presently used, and just generally sound amazing both outdoor and indoor. However, they are also the least durable batter side head I've ever used. I am not exaggerating when I say that every Evans Hybrid Head I have used on my snare section has unseated, popped or developed tearing within 6 months. Our program doesn't have the available funds for this amount of upkeep. Now, I know several reading this review will assume that it's uneven tuning or some other issue. I can assure all of you that I have taken all the necessary care and precautions tuning these drums, double-checking each tension and not cranking the heads too much too early. These heads, for whatever reason, simply don't stand up all that well.

Decent

Comments:

They sounded unique from the max series, but i still prefer the maxes. I found at a low pitch, they weren't as warm as the remo counterpart, but if taken up they sounded pretty good. they felt good but not as amazing as everyone makes it seem, the black max is only a little bit of a harded feel.

evans heads

Comments:

Evans head may "pull" easier, but this is the result of uneven tension. If you tune with even tension around the head they wont pull. Don't crank the heads too much at a time especially the bottom heads evans makes. Great heads though. Great sound.
