This has always been the case for their regular coated heads. The UV series is a solution looking for a problem. There is nothing wrong with them except they are a lot more expensive for no real advantage
Who at Evans did you wrong? What happened? hahaThis has always been the case for their regular coated heads. The UV series is a solution looking for a problem. There is nothing wrong with them except they are a lot more expensive for no real advantage
I just ordered 10, 12, 14 for my Renown. Got them on sale from Musicians Friend for $32.00. Not bad $10.00 per head . Will do a review once received.
That's a killer price, hopefully you jumped all over it.I posted yesterday that Musicians Friend had their semi-annual Drum Sale going on, can't find it now, and commented that the 10, 12, 14 chocice of UV2 wasn't available. Well it is, as is 12, 13 and 16, and 10, 12, and 16. Right on time for my budget
Same here, I tried UV1's on all my toms and my snare, and liked them a lot at first, but they're not my first choice anymore. I'm not sure what it is about them, but I feel like they have less overtones than a G1 or Ambassador. I've heard the UV2's in YouTube comparisons and to my ears they don't sound as good as the G2's. Same issue, they seem kind of one-dimensional, not as rich-sounding. Some of my kits have Remo, some Evans, but after experimenting with lots of different heads over the last few years, I'm pretty happy with coated G2/Emperors over clear G1/Ambassadors.I tried the UV1's all around my kit. At first I liked them, then that feeling waned. I took sandpaper to the coating because I felt it was too thick after playing them a few weeks. That coating is tough tough tough! I don't use them anymore. Too stiff or something.
