Thinking about giving these a try on toms and snare. I could only find pretty old threads on these, so hopefully there’s updated feedback.

Thanks!

I have them on my walnut stave kit and they are KILLER. Normally I really don’t like Evans heads, but these are something special. I also have one on a steam bent maple snare, and that snare really came alive with that head.

A little more info…I was using Remo Renaissance Ambassadors on that kit because I like that really dark sound, but I often found them to be a bit too dry. The Strata keep that same dark tone, but with a much more round and even sustain. They also have a softer, bouncier stick feel compared to the Remo heads. I do however use the Renaissance Powerstroke heads on the bass drum for that kit and it’s a perfect match for the Strata on the toms.
