A patented UV-cured coating and breakthrough 10-mil film give the Evans UV1 drumhead the kind of durability that drummers dream of. If you're tired of your coating wearing thin long before your head wears out, Tone Tailors drummers recommend the Evans UV1. Like other leading coated heads, the UV1 is made from a single ply of 10-mil film for a good balance of sensitivity and tone. But it's made tough to resist wear from rimshots, buzzes, and swirls. The Evans UV1 also boasts Evans' Level 360 collar, which seats the head evenly along the bearing edge for better tone and tuning.
