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 loves Hydraulic Blue. Not only are they easy to tune, but they sound fat. Perfect for live, perfect for recording! Producers & Sound Engineers love them, no annoying rings. No need for duct tape or moon gel
My students' favorite snare batter, Evans Genera Dry. There's an overtone control ring, & PRECISION DRILLED vents to further reduce overtones & sustain.
