Does this mean these dadario guys are going to make changes? I have ordered some heads and I love them so if so, these changes are great especially the level 360 heads. I also ordered some promark sticks and noticed they're a little different than the ones I've always loved. Maybe I got a dud pair or are the winds of dadario change coming and if so, what are they? Very curious.
Hey there! Sorry I'm just seeing this post now.

D'Addario is the largest manufacturer of musical instrument accessories. Though the company started with guitar strings, it has grown to be so much more. In 1995, D'Addario purchased Evans and started making improvements to the manufacturing process. Evans has come a long way since then. The most recent achievement has been the transition to the Level 360 collar design, which was made possible through the D'Addario engineering staff.

D'Addario also purchased Promark Drumsticks in January of 2011 and has been making major improvements to the quality, consistency, and overall manufacturing of the sticks. All of this is in addition to the highest level of customer service that we provide at D'Addario where we believe that everyone should be able to get first-hand help with any of our products. This is just as important to us as the products we make.

You will continue to see improvements from all of the D'Addario brands as we're constantly moving forward. Thanks for noticing!

The Level 360 technology by D'Addario and Evans is a big reason why I love their heads over any other. Absolutely fantastic heads... Can't go wrong in purchasing anyways for any drum if it's Evans in my opinion!

I'd just like to add that we have a fruitful & mutually supportive relationship with D'Addario & Evans, both in the UK & D'Addario in the USA. Evans know just how meticulous we are re: head consistency and our bearing edges.

We only ever use Evan's standard format heads on our drums. With the exception of Emad, & the slight muffle affect of twin ply on toms, we don't need to enter their expansive range of tailored options.

We do see one glaring gap in their range though, & that's an equivalent of Aquarian's Modern Vintage range. It's a tonal palate that Evans don't currently provide, & one we find very attractive on our more jazz/bop/classic vibe configurations. Those heads work especially well on our Origin series drums.

Just ordered a G12 coated for the high tom on my 50's Gretsch and a G14 coated for the floor tom. I am going to use the J1 Etched as reso's. I am using a G1 on the snare.
I can't wait to fit them on the kit this weekend.

Im an Evans guy, so when the new 360 heads came out I bought a set. Yesterday I sat down to practice and noticed that my 14in floor tom sounded dead. Im using G2 coated by theway. When I removed the head I found that the head was very loose and the plys seemed to have seperated. Really upset that I have to plunk down more money for a new head. This one was only a week old. Hope this is random.

That seems odd- not sure what would have caused that. Drop me a message at ben,smith@daddario.com with mailing address and I'll get you a replacement.

The funny thing is, that pretty much all heads have had the same effect as the 360 on my drums simply because they are a little bit less than standard diameter, and the bearing edge always sits on the planar portion of the head, never where it is crimped.

So im not sure if the 360 technology affects the way my drums sound, since my bearing edge have always sat on the flat portion, like the 360.

But hey, it sounds great on my snare! (All ive tried the 360 on)

I've been a Remo guy forever, but I tried a set of Level 360 G2's on my Stagestar kit when GC didn't have any 14" Clear Emperors. I was so impressed with how good my cheap Stagestars sounded that I decided to put clear G2's on my Saturn kit (and a coated G2 on my Sensitone snare). My kit sounded great and tuned up so easily...it really was effortless to get the drums sounding great. Not that I've had issues tuning Remo heads, but it was just so easy to get the drums in tune. The coated G2 on the snare sounded fantastic, and after 2 3-hour shows the head looks barely used. I'm sold on the sound, ease of tuning, and overall quality of the Level 360 heads, nice job Evans!
