Default Best Snare Drum Head Combination (evans)

I want a
fat, low sound with a good attack
with like not much of a sustain..
something good for pop/rock music..
i dont want it to be too crisp either..
The snare drum is a birch wood..
whats the best Evans Snare head combination (both batter and reso) to get?

If you have a sample of the sound of combination of the snare heads please post it.
a link or anything..

It sounds to me like your ordering a meal at a drive through, Achieving a certain drum sound is not analogous to that unless you have the food preparer tuning up that drum.
A certain combination of heads on a drum could sound many different ways, and that comes down to the way the drum is tuned.
I will concede that certain heads will foster that sound better than others however if you are not a seasoned tuner it will not really make a big difference what heads you are using.
My advice would be to try and achieve the sound you are looking for with the heads you have now, it is possible to a certain degree to find what you are looking for with many comb's of heads. Becoming the food preparer in this scenario is key!

Evans Genera HD Dry with a Hazy 300 on the snare side, or A G2 coated tom head with a Hazy 300 snare side. I have a G2 on one snare. The coated cuts the sustain and if tuned low it will sound fat like you wish.

The Remo PS 3 coated with power dot also gives a fat sound. It likes medium tuning a lot.
I don't lock myself into one brand of head. I use heads from several manufacturers.

Definately a great choice.
The frosted EC1 or EC2 reverse dot might be an option as well. I've never tried the 300 Hazy but it is mentioned quite a bit on various forums. The 300 makes sense for the sound you describe.

Hmm on my Black Panther maple snare I used to use a evans ST Dry over a Evans Hazy 300, I reckon that may well get the sound you're after.
