It’s A Colorful World

By Andrew Lentz Published November 3, 2009

The days of dull bass drum reso heads are over. The Inked system from Evans drum heads lets your imagination run wild as your kit turns heads like never before.

Inked allows drummers to print a large, color graphic on bass drumheads with Evans’ new high-resolution printing system. The “Inked by Evans” offers multiple options for drumhead customization:

Showcase: Licensed designs by well-known musicians and graphic designers including Alchemy Gothic™, Lethal Threat™, Al McWhite, and Woodstock artwork.

Gallery: Interesting textures, nature scenes, abstract photography and clever graphics.

Custom: Users upload their own graphics and/or type in custom text over Evans’ “Gallery” designs.

“Style speaks for itself both musically and visually; ‘Inked by Evans’ gives drummers their own voice,” says Mike Robinson, Evans Senior Product Manager. “This new program allows players to express their style with some amazing designs or even promote their band with a high-quality, customized head. The possibilities are endless.”
