Re: Evans new Heavyweight snare head.
I just put one on a 6½" Supra, and it sound very much like my favorite Super Tough batter. The reverse dot helps accentuates the harmonics for a surprisingly lively sound, and the response is pretty normal for a 'thick' head. It wouldn't be suited for orchestral or very delicate work, although I was getting some lovely closed rolls from it the other day! (Hear it on Al's new polka medley - due someday soon - which starts and ends with the rolls!)
I look forward to trying it on tour on my Black Beauty.
