These are selection of heads that we think suit snare drums either on the resonant or batter side. Of course there is no hard and fast rules and you can always experiment with other drum heads.
Snare drum heads being the part of the drum that is actually struck and creates the vibrations could be argued to be the most important factor on how a drum ultimately sounds.
Remo are the leading name in snare drum heads. Their Coated Ambassador head has become the standard go to snare head. They are not unrivalled though.
Evans have developed a huge loyal following of drummers who trust in their level 360 technology to provide an easier and more accurate tuning across the drum. Their Genera and Genera dry ranges include built in dampening rings that help create a drier sound with less ring.
Most drummers change their snare heads whenever the coating on the head starts to come off or dents appear but this is actually a poor measurement of the life left in a head as they are often over stretched long before this. The Evans UV1 Coated heads actually won’t lose their coating ever! We recommend changing your heads at least every 6 months but this of course varies with frequency of use.
