EC snare heads each consist of a 7 mil top ply and 10 mil bottom ply for maximum durability, each with the sophisticated edge control system that banishes unwanted overtones. A translucent frosted coating lends a unique, attractive look. Despite the head's relative thickness, it has a forgiving feel; ghost notes project tremendously well; rim shots offer a "tweaked" palette of rich overtones; and center-of-the-head strokes yield fat, focused tones.

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.

No warranty.

I don't care for the new 360 heads in some cases.

Comments about Evans EC Snare Coated Batter Head:

I grew up using REMO heads exclusively. In the 80's I started using Evans because their hoops were just a tad larger making seating and tuning the head easier which in turn produced a better tone. I used the coated EC heads for snares that had ringing problems (It was about that time when internal dampers were taken off and thrown away by many drummers due to the belief that anything inside the drum would interfere with the "air movement"). The new Evans EC is different than the old one as they have changed the control ring composition. And of course it's a level 360 too. I've used the 360's on a number of sets and they worked OK. But the EC model just didn't seat the way the old ones did. As an aside, the Evans head coatings will wash off with water and mild soap (I literally washed the entire coating off of an EC without much elbow grease at all and also took a great deal of the white coating off of a Genera coated head (I use glass cleaner on my REMO's without removing any coating). So don't clean EVAN's heads. I'm disappointed as I've been using EVAN's for years now.

Beefy Beefy!

Comments about Evans EC Snare Coated Batter Head:

Ever wonder: How can I get that fat beefy tone out of my snare drum without having to buy a deeper shelled snare, tune low, or use a lot of dampening? Well folks this is the answer. We got this head to replace an old Ambassador on a DW Craviotto maple snare drum over at the studio the not so long ago. Prior to the dayof replacement, we had recorded a guide track with the old Ambassador head along with a an old Tama dampener. We knew the head had to be replaced because the two plies were separating and making an air bubble on the head. So the guy in charge brought over this head. As son as I changed it out, I decided to go medium tuning. I figured since the Ambassador head sounded fine at medium tuning this one will have the same effect, but I was wrong. It was so deep and responsive, almost sounded like a floor tom with 42 strand snare wires. So I decided to crank it up all the way (figure of speech, I am aware of the concept of damaging a drum due to high tension). The result: A huge cracking attack with a lot of low end. I fell in love when I heard on the play back. The overtones were perfect, we didn't have to dampen the drum at all. This is one great snare drum head. If you're looking for that big fat snare sound without losing response, this is it. And if you have problems with a ringing snare during live situations this head can also work for you. One thing is for sure, I can't wait to get this thing on my 14 x 8 snare drum!
