The Evans EC series is Evans' most popular new technology, loudly heralded by the drum industry.
Denoting edge control, the 2-ply, 7-mil EC2 heads incorporate a proprietary design on the underside circumference that tweaks desired overtones and eliminates unwanted ones. Not merely a blanket pre-muffling system, the EC-treated head is fine-tuned to retain a focused fundamental while retaining contemporary ambience, sustain, and sensitivity.
An Edge Control ring isolates and dampens higher overtones, enhances low-end and attack, and enables broader tuning and dynamic ranges. Unlike conventionally damped heads, the EC2 will not choke at higher tuning ranges, or loose its full-bodied presence when tuned low.
The EC2 Coated heads feature a translucent frosted coating that provides warm tone and additional focus. The EC concept is really a contemporary alternative. It's not a haphazard muffling system but a true, targeted tone enhancement. Its twin-ply with 7mil layers makes it the same as Evans clear EC2 head, but the translucent coating answers a call from drummers for a coated EC2, makes an amazing tonal difference, and simply looks great.
The Coated Snare Drum Head with Reverse Dot is a futuristic innovation in drumhead and overall drum sound. EC Snare heads combine two-plies of film (6.5mil external, 10mil internal) with Evan's Edge Control technology to produce a controlled sound while retaining resonance and sensitivity at all tuning and dynamic ranges. The addition of a specially designed patch on the Reverse Dot model lends extra durability, focus, and attack in the center.
At its heart, says Evans Product Manager Michael Robinson, the EC head is not damped. It's treated around the edges to tweak the overtones and response. For snare drums it's particularly effective and yields a pre-EQ'd sound that will please both player and sound engineer.
Get 3 drum heads in a convenient package with the EC2 Fusion and EC2 Standard Packages. The Fusion includes 10 inch, 12 inch, and 14 inch heads, while the Standard includes 12 inch, 13 inch, and 16 inch heads.
