Default Re: Evans new Level 360 drum heads

Honestly, I don't even understand the point of the collar. I tried a Remo snare side ambassador without the collar once, and as soon as it was on, it stretched - and thus, a perfectly fitting collar was born. I feel like a deeper collar might work really well for some drums, but be awful for anything with a edge different from the standard 45. I've never tried a thicker batter head without a collar, but I would love to. Perhaps it would be too thick to stretch, but it sounds like a plausible idea in my head.
Either way, props to Evans for pushing technology forward, even though I don't use any of their products. Good marketing, too. That's always been their forte IMHO :).
