Default Evans Genera Dry Question

What is the difference between The HD Genera Dry and the regular Genera Dry? I see they are both are 2 ply but can get in 1 ply but what is the difference?

1 ply is one layer of head material. 2 is.....2. 2 would obviously be more durable. What snare drum are you putting this on? I have a 13x6 maple snare that I put the Genera dry on and did not like the head at all.

I had a regular Genera and that was too much. It was just too dead sounding with that ring. I use G1 Coated heads now, truly beautiful. I think I've tried a drum with a Dry head and it was perhaps the most useless thing I've ever heard--stick a snare on a plastic bowl and you get the same effect. As for an HD Dry....unless you are playing some massive steel snare or something that rings a lot, I would stay clear of it. If you want a dry head look at just the Genera, or Genera Dry, Orchestral Staccato, EC Snare. However, I think you will be most happy with just a G1 Coated head and Moongels or something if you get to a situation where you need dampening.

Same here. The genera dry was just way too dead for me.

Yea the Genera is almost an equivalent to a Remo Coated Powerstroke 3. And the HD Genera is like Powerstroke 4. Those rings on the underside really muffle the drum a little TOO much.

A Coated G2 or G1 would work very nice on a snare.. Or a Coated PC Rev Dot. I use all 3 heads.
