There are numerous suggestions that could be made, and all of them are equally correct. Playing in a cover band doesn't necessarily dictate one over the other, or any in particular. That being said, MY personal preference for snare heads is usually a Remo coated ambassador with reinforcing dot on the underside for the batter, and a hazy snare-side Ambassador on the resonant. Allows for a fair amount of range in tuning, etc. STILL... That being said, the shell itself wll have a far greater impact on the sound you get out of the drum, as will the tuning.
i'm playing in a cover band and need to get heads for my pearl sensitone brass shell drum. What bottom and top heads would you use?

YES! !!!! Hazy 300 under a Genera HD Dry,a winning combo
I've had a lot of good luck with Evans Genra HD Dry batter heads and Hazy 300 reso side. Every snare I own gets that treatment. They have sounded good on every snare I have put them on from the old Acrolite to a Maple snare

This is what I do too. The heads are durable and sound good at a variety of tunings.
I'm using an Evans Power Center Reverse Dot (the Evans version of what kmart described) on my batter and a hazy 300 on the reso.

i use an evans G2 coated on top and a hazy 300 on the bottom on all my snares. i've tried some of the other more "snare targeted" batters, but i always wind up going back to just a good ol G2 coated.
