EVANS LAUNCHES NEW MARCHING LINE OF DRUMHEADS MEC2S
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.
