What seperates Evans from other inferior brands is it's consistant quality & punch.  Even if a drummer is playing an extry level drum set, Evans will compensate with a superior head. On low end drums, the shells are generally thin & low quality.  The head is balanced on something called a "Bearing Edge." All Evans drum heads are maufactured to compensate uneven &  irregular surfaces or "bearing edges".  It's part of Evans "LEVEL 360"  process. 360 gives balanced contact over every single angle of the drum head.  For example, on an Evans EC2 tom batter , the drum head has two piles of 7mil film. The EDGE CONTROL RING helps balance & control the tone, meaning less annoying rings and vibrations and the head rests flat. When it's struck, no vibrations.

Marty's other favorite head, Black Chrome. This is the deepest sounding head I've ever played.  As with all Evans  drum heads, the response is phenomenal.  The tone & projection is out of the park.

Here's my favorite snare BATTER. Evans Hydraulic Blue Coated. Fat, deep, short awesome snare sound.  You hear the REAL snare sound. For closed rolls & rudiments it's like a day at the beach! Very cool for brush work.

Marty plays Evans 300 SNARE SIDE for that hazy, sensitive sound.  Your snare drum will sound better with PURESOUND SNARE WIRES.
