Default Re: Best snare heads for sharp/cutting sound?

I own a 5 1/2"x13" Black Panther maple snare and it cracks like a whip with any head that I put on it. It is a cutting drum with a lot of Pop! I have played it at large venues and it was heard real well in the recordings.

I like Aquarian Focus-X coated
Evans G1 coated
Remo Ambassador and Ambassador X coated.
Those are my go to heads for all of my snares.

A heavy Chrome Over Brass snare with die cast hoops will have more bite than a wooden snare as a rule.
I kind of like old drums:)
