Because of the feel and sound of the Strata heads, many Concert snare drummers have found them to be adaptable for wide usage. They are extremely articulate and hold their tuning well. The "Staccato 700" version has been especially popular.
The clear Evans EMAD Bass Batter is a very popular dark, low pitched head. It is single ply with lots of punch. The external dampening system on the head is adjustable for attack and focus. Excellent Rock and R&B quality.
