Bass drum heads won't be until late 2013/early 2014.

I noticed the new 12" I picked up was in fact the new 360 design. But, it seemed to fit the shell no different than the others. But, I did notice how much easier it was to tune. I had to play around with the other size toms just a bit to get the sound I wanted. The 12" went where I wanted it to almost effortlessly compared to the others. I was kinda shocked though that it had the same wobbly play as the non-360 heads.
Chances are that the Onyx heads that you picked up a while back did in fact have the Level 360 collar. As I mentioned, we've had this in production since mid-to-late 2012.
