The Evans J1 etched is an extremely sensitive drumhead, perfect for brushes.
Made with a single ply of 10mil film, the coating is etched onto the drumhead rather than applied, meaning it will not chip away, and will respond excellently to the lightest touch. This drumhead is perfect for brushes, and is also perfect if you need to hear every small accent and ghost note with drumsticks. The Evans J1 etched drumhead provides a lot of tone, sustain, and character – leave it open to hear a full sound with a long sustain, or dampen it to create a more controlled fatter sound that keeps the responsiveness. This drumhead is great for low and moderate volume playing.
The Evans J1 Etched is available for snare drums and 12″ to 16″ toms.
