Superior Snare

Recently I switched from REMO Coated Emperors to the EVANS Level 360 heads on my brass Carmine Appice signature snare. According to the EVANS website, Level 360 is a revolutionary new drumhead technology that’s staking a claim for the freedom of drummers everywhere. EVANS goes on to boast that Level 360 drumheads will be leading the charge across the board into a new era of innovation and superior performance all-around. These heads have four main intentions: 1) Ensure balanced contact with the critical bearing edge of the drum shell. 2) Provide strength and stability without altering performance. 3) Increase ease of tuning and enhance the quality of sound. 4) Widen tuning options resulting in higher levels of responsiveness and resonance. The particular Level 360 head that I am using also has tiny vent holes completely around the edge of the head. This allows the drum to breath. Overall this head has more attack and better response than other snare brands that I have tried. I still use REMO pinstripes on my toms, but for the time being EVANS Level 360 will be the head of choice for my snare drum. (For video examples visit:
