Evans drumheads is pleased to introduce the new Power Center Tom Heads, offering vintage sound through contemporary design. Compared to other single-ply heads, Evans’ Power Center Tom Heads offer a full-bodied tone with great attack, increased durability, and impeccable focus. These heads are ideal for players who prefer that classic 70’s sound but require modern consistency and quality.
Evans’ Power Center Tom Heads feature graduated film thickness (10-mil film for heads sized from 6” – 12” and 12-mil film on 13” – 18”) and graduated dot sizes to create a balanced sound across the kit. Like Evans’ popular EC Snare heads, the Power Center Tom Heads utilize the same stress-relieved metalized dot on the underside allowing the head to flex and vibrate more naturally for an unchoked resonance.
“The new Evans Power Center single-ply tom heads are perfect for players looking for an old-school, vintage tone,” says Mike Robinson, Evans Senior Product Manager. “These heads are great for players who crave the response of a one-ply head but don’t want to forfeit strength, tone, or consistency.”
Available January 1, 2010, the heads will retail from $26.00 to $48.00.
