I'd go with either the Genera Dry over a Hazy 300 snare side, or the HD Dry if you're a hard hitter.

I use a Power Center Reversed Dot over a Hazy 300 on my snare. With a little dampening (one moongel), it gives me the exact sound you're describing. I've also played a snare that's the same model as mine (Pork Pie Big Black Brass) with a Genera Dry batter head, and it sounds great as well, though it may suck out a little too much of the overtones for your liking. Hope this helps!

Check out the Hazy 300. Good all around reso head.

The HD Dry and Hazy 300 are a good combo. I currently use that. Though I must admit, it is quite dry, very short sustain. Personally I am considering the ST Dry next, for a little more drum voice.

Forgot about the ST. It's a little too loud for my tastes, but for the sound you're going for I would definitely consider it (just don't use it for jazz!)

I really like the EC Reverse Dot batter head over a Hazy 300 snare-side head. That is what I have on both my snares. Or you could always get a coated G1 and "muffle to taste". Peace and goodwill.

I have used three combos' all with the hazy 300.
For Batters I have use dht Genera HD Dry, the Genera ST Dry, and am currently using a EC2 SST. That is a tom head per se but if you don't use brushes this super thick clear head is great.

Can anyone describe the tone/sound between the ST Dry and HD Dry?
