Precision-drilled holes around the outside of the drumhead give this head a unique dry sound, reducing overtones and decreasing sustain. The Evans HD is a durable, attacking drumhead with a short focus on mid and low-end tones. Excellent for loud environments.
A 2-ply drumhead with 5mil on top and 7.5mil on the underside, a 2mil floating underside inlay ring, and precision-drilled dry vents around the outside of the drumhead. The sound is similar to the regular evans HD, but with more controlled sustain and overtones. This allows the drum to provide a big attack, without being followed by a ringing sustain. Able to withstand heavier hitting, this is a great option for a controlled, responsive and loud snare drum.
