Introducing Evans Level 360 - A D'Addario Innovation
We'd like to introduce you to Level 360 — the revolutionary new drumhead technology that's staking a claim for the freedom of drummers everywhere. Freedom to spend more time playing not tuning, jamming not cramming, and expressing themselves with tonal range like never before. From here on out, Evans drumheads will be leading the charge across the board into a new era of innovation & superior performance all-around — 360 degrees to be exact.
Over the next few months, the Percussion Blog will center-focus on Level 360, arming you will all the knowledge and information you need to spread the revolution. We're pretty confident you'll join as well! Be on the lookout for exclusive interviews with Evans artists and Product Specialists, as well as free samples to be had.
So what's this Level 360 all about, you ask?
Evans' proprietary Level 360 Technology (patent pending) collar design extends the level playing surface of the drumhead 360 degrees around the drum. The vertically enhanced collar design ensures balanced contact with the critical bearing edge of the drum shell, resulting in:
- Ease of fit
- Ease of tuning
- Extended tuning range and quality of sound
Evans’ collar solves the age-old dilemma of traditional synthetic heads consistently not fitting a variety of drum shells without using force that subsequently chokes the responsiveness of the head and the drum’s performance. All 6-20" polyester film heads include the Level 360 collar.
