hazy 300 snare side no question imo.
if you want a dry sound go with a genera hd dry
if you want overtone use the standard genera

i use a genera / hazy 300 on my spaun 13x6 steel

I've been using an Evans Super Tough on a steel 6.5 X 14 lately and it gives a very loud crack with a quick decay. Pretty nice.

I've used most, if not all, of the Evans snare batters and like this head for an aggressive sound.
