OVERVIEW

First-of-their-kind coated drum heads cured with ultraviolet light.

This Evans drum head is a result of years of research, testing and product development. Featuring the latest innovation from D’Addario, this drum head is the very first to market with patented UV cured coating. It is the most consistently applied coating ever seen on a drumhead.

These heads are an extremely durable alternative in comparison to other traditional coatings. This is a great solution for drummers who are tired of flaked, chipped, and worn out coating. It has the added benefit of increased surface texture making it extremely responsive and sensitive for brush playing.

Best for harder playing

By StudioDrumTracks

from Austin, TX

See all my reviews

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • loud!
  • no chipping or flaking of the coating
  • seems durable

Cons

  • Not sensitive enough for jazz players

Best Uses

  • Rock, or something where you are hitting harder

Comments about Evans UV1 Coated Drum Head:

ok, so initially I tried one on a wooden snare that I use for jazz gigs. I want something that is sensitive for brushes and lighter playing but also has some tone (i.e. not thick and dead). The feel of the coating was nice for brushes, but the sensitivity is not there. Normally I use a suede ambassador (hard to find) or a J1 etched (not very durable). Even a regular coated ambassador or G1 has more feel. Evans says this is a 10mil head but it just feels thicker, or sort of like its muted-but at the same time its loud when you really hit it. So I moved it to a Ludwig Supraphonic 5x14 that I keep tight for a zydeco band and it works nicely there. It can really pop. It still has a good tone, even when tight. I have not noticed any chipping or unusual wear in the coating either yet.

UV1 batter heads. Live up to the hype.

Comments about Evans UV1 Coated Drum Head:

I put these on my walnut semi solid drums. I had g12's on and the difference 2 mil in head plies made a huge difference. I think the thing I like best about them beaides their overall tone is how they feel to play. They were instantly pleasing to my ear and sticks.

    Comments about Evans UV1 Coated Drum Head:

    Using this UV-1 head on my Black Magic 15" snare. I'm trying single ply coated on my metal drums, kinda of getting away from the Genera dry heads, haven't used a reverse dot in ages... Great feel for brushes. I'm trying it now with Masshoff tuning, and can get it very dry. Can not yet speak to durability, but it hasn't transferred to my cymbals that I can see, nylon and wood tips. Have been using Aquarian and Evans single ply coated heads for my snare drums for years. I have a 14" head waiting to go on the Black Beauty Clone that I built, but waiting for the cast hoops before I put it on. I have one on my Taye Studio Birch snare, which I haven't really cared much for, but this head seems to have perked it up. Maybe this head is worth the slight bump in price...

      An excellent innovation by Evans. The UV1 heads give snare drums ofvany size a warmer, less "tingly" sound. They convey a smooth and definitive sound when using brishesband appear to remain exactly as tuned, even after extensive use.

              Comments about Evans UV1 Coated Drum Head:

              I had never even heard of the UV1 heads, but I've tried everything else, so I figured why not. It's a one ply head, just like a g1, but seems to have an extra something. Also, I like the look, it's got a cool logo and the coating ends right at the edge of the drumhead. I used this for a 7x13 Pork Pie Patina snare, and with this head it's a funk machine. Clean, clear crack and pop, great snare response, easy to tune. I have it tuned pretty high for a classic funk sound and man does it sound good! These are supposed to be super-durable, so if you like the g1 but want a longer lasting coating this may be the ticket.

                Comments about Evans UV1 Coated Drum Head:

                I had just about given up. Then I saw this head in the new musician,s friend catalog. Thought I'd give it one more try. I've been trying to get this sound for years. Had been using G1 and G2 coated with a combination of moon gels. I don't need them any more. It sounds great with no damping required. By the way, it's on a Gretsch hand hammer brass snare with cast hoops. Tunes up real easy and stays in tune.
