Evans EC1 Reverse Dot combines the responsiveness of a 1-ply drumhead with the durability, control and focus of thicker options.
A single ply of 14mil film means this drumhead will be more sensitive than 2-ply drumheads, while being warmer and more controlled than thinner heads. The addition of control rings help to reduce unwanted overtones and provide more attack. The center control dot pushes this even further, focusing the sound when struck in the center. While this drumhead has a little more sustain than the 2-ply version, it is still very focused – without any unwanted overtones interfering with tuning. It can handle heavier hitting, but will also respond when lighter playing is needed. The control dot is on the underside of the drumhead, meaning it won’t get in the way of brushes and won’t affect responsiveness too much when used with sticks.
