The UV1 Drumheads is the end result of years of research, experimentation, and product development. Its coating provides unmatched durability and consistency of texture.
Designed for durability and versatility, the UV1 Drumheads also features a new 10mil film known for its warmer tonal characteristics while being more resistant to stretching and denting.
Combined with Evans’ Level 360 technology, and debuting a new logo, the UV1 Drumheads promises to be the most versatile and durable 10mil drumhead for the widest range of sonic possibilities and musical applications.
“The UV1 Snare Head gives you a focused, full sound in the centre of the head with a musical balance of usable harmonic overtones (aka ring) at the edge that you don’t have to “tune out” or mute down with tape or gels. It’s the perfect sound right out of the box! Excellent tuning range and feel, great for both studio and live, and they look fantastic too”
Said acclaimed drummer Omar Hakim.
The added benefit of increased surface texture makes the UV1 extremely responsive to brush playing while the UV-cured coating provides unmatched durability.

Evans: “Drum Solos Haven’t Been Cool Since 1969″*
*THAT SEEMS DEBATABLE (AND DrumPerium certainly beg to differ). But one thing isn’t (according to Evans): the 10mil single-ply UV1 Drumheads. 89% of the drummers Evans asked said it gave them the exact same sound they wanted.
The also said it was more versatile and durable than their old heads (thanks to its patented UV-cured coating).
The UV1 series will initially be release in sizes from 10″-16″. Find out more at Evans New UV1 Promo Site.
