Drive the Bus With a Lead Foot on Evans' New, Super-Durable Drumhead Offerings
Evans launch its most durable film-based drumheads yet, the EMAD Heavyweight bass drum head and the Heavyweight snare batter head. With EMAD Heavyweight's two plies of 10mil film, a total thickness of 20 mils, drummers don't have to worry about putting the kick through the head. The new Heavyweight Snare batter employs two plies of 10mil film plus a 3mil reverse dot, for a total thickness of 23 mils in the playing area. Drummers can perform with as much force as needed without concern.

Both the EMAD Heavyweight bass drum head and Heavyweight snare batter feature the new Level 360 Technology which ensures better fit, easier tuning, and a wider tonal range. For the EMAD Heavyweight, Level 360 provides a startling punch of low frequencies. Along with excellent dynamic response and a wide tonal range, these new heads are perfect for the heavy hitter with finesse, providing maximum durability without feeling unplayable.

"Just when you thought you couldn't get more 'boom' from your bass drum, the EMAD Heavyweight delivers," comments Ben O'Brien Smith, Evans Product Specialist. "At the same time, the Heavyweight snare batter head is durable, focused, and dynamic. Heavyweight durability doesn't have to mean a heavily weighted feel."
