First of all, look beyond Remo and Evans. Try Aquarian (http://www.aquariandrumheads.com) which are really good quality and Texture Coated are pretty good.

Hope this helps.

Can't go wrong with a standard Coated ambassador.

Any of the Evans Genera coated heads with a Hazy 300 reso head will get you a pretty sensitive sound. Just keep those snare wires loose.

Sensitive for the low notes, but needs to have good pop when laid into.

Sounds like an Evans Power Center Reverse Dot would work for you.

The Remo Coated Ambassador is the classic sound and would work well for what you have described. If you are a hard hitter though, you may want to look at the Remo Coated CS.

Default Re: I need a new snare batter

When I had my sonor 3003, unfortunately the snare was the weakest link. Just lots of ring. I tried an Evans Genera Dry (definitely not for people who like ring), but it took out all of the unwanted overtones in that snare for me.

I am yet to bust one of them, and I hit pretty hard, so they seem durable to me. All 3 of my snares have them on there now.

But, like I said, it takes out any bad, and good overtones. So, unless you like a dry as a desert snare, it might not be for you.
