The most durable drumhead available – if you’re a heavy hitter that needs a loud snare drum, this is for you. It can handle the very hardest playing and will allow you to cut through a mix at any volume. If you break this drumhead, you need to quit drumming.
The Evans Hybrid is made from an extremely strong weave of two unique fibers, allowing it to withstand the heaviest playing under all conditions. Tuned medium or high, it will allow huge cracking rimshots and will cut through any mix with a crisp and clear attack; perfect for loud, fast, and heavy music. When tuned low it will be completely fat and dead, for a big ballad rock sound. Quite responsive and versatile for such a heavy duty drumhead, the textured top also allows sensitive playing and brushwork. The solid construction reduces overtones and sustain, meaning the focus is on the initial attack.
The Evans Hybrid is more expensive than other drumheads, but if you’re constantly damaging heads due to heavy hitting, this will end up saving you a lot of money in the long run. Originally designed for marching band snare drums, this drumhead can withstand long-term abuse and any weather conditions.
