A UV cured, extremely durable coating that will resist chipping – The Evans UV1 is versatile, with a bright, open sound.
Like the Evans G1 coated, The UV1 is an incredibly versatile drumhead. Both drumheads give a similar sound, however the UV1’s coating is much stronger and resist the chipping that happens with long-term use. If you need a longer lasting coated drumhead that retains the qualities of a thinner 1-ply drumhead, this is for you. The single ply of 10mil film makes this drumhead extremely responsive, with a bright, open, and resonant sound. Full of character when tuned high, this drumhead can also sound fat if tuned low with some dampening. Great for lower and medium volume playing, the UV1 also has a more textured coating surface, which means it will be extra responsive to brushes and more delicate playing.
If you’re tired of your drumhead coating chipping away, try the Evans UV1.
The UV1 is designed for snare drums.
