Default Re: Evans new Level 360 drum heads

I think this is a really good idea and long overdue. My toms' bearing edges are cut at 45s all the way out to the edge - there is no countercut. It's not at all uncommon to lay new heads on and see that they are making contact with the bearing edge on the collar of the head instead of the flat part. How can that *not* adversely affect tuning? I don't see this as gimmicky or just some kind of shortcut to easy tuning - this is the way everyone's heads should've been made all along.
