New Marching Version of Tenor Heads Designed in Response
to the Use of Evans’ EC2S Tom Heads on Marching Tenor Drums

Evans is proud to launch the new Marching EC2 Tenor Heads with Sound Shaping Technology™ as a marching version of the Evans EC2 SST™ heads.  The new tenor heads were designed in response to the use of Evans EC2S tom heads on marching tenor drums.

The MEC2S features the same roll-over hoop design used on all other marching tenor heads for greater durability.  The hoop design is optimal for use with marching tenor drums because it can handle the tension and wear requirements of the marching activity.  The heads are available in sizes 6, 8, 10, 12, 13 and 14”.

The EC2 with Sound Shaping Technology™ feature a unique damping technique that insures optimized performance for each individually sized drumhead.  Ring thickness, and  width are scaled based on drumhead size.  Controlling the placement and mass of the ring allows the drumhead to target select frequencies for attenuation in order to fully optimize the attack, tone, length of sustain, and ease of tuning for each size head, delivering a more balanced sound across the range of drums.

“We’re excited to launch our new line of marching drumheads,” says Dick Markus, Evans Percussion Product Manager.  “The new Marching EC2S tenor heads utilize the same great Sound Shaping Technology™ that our tom heads use while the roll-over hoop design can handle the stress and tension of the marching activity and allow bands to give their best overall performance.”

The MEC2S durmheads range from MSRP $26.00 – $34.00.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
