Evans Level 360 Wins Best in Show Award

ALL-NEW LEVEL 360 DRUMHEADS TURN HEADS AS THEY TAKE BEST IN SHOW AT NAMM Evans Wins Best “Accessories and Add-Ons” Category with Revolutionary Level 360 Drumheads Evans is proud to announce that their newest innovation, the Level 360 Technology™ drum head collar design, was named winner of Winter NAMM’s Best in Show “Best Accessories and Add-Ons” Category; Best in Show Awards are part of a NAMM University educational program featuring six panelists who represent single-store operations, small- to mid-sized chains and one of the industry’s top trade magazines. As recipient of the “Best Accessories and Add-Ons” category, Evans’ exclusive Level 360 design delivers ease of tuning, maximum sustain and top performance qualities on the widest variety of modern and vintage drums. The problem with traditional drumheads is due to variations in drum shell diameters, they often tend to lay askew on the drum’s bearing edge, requiring physical force and over-tensioning to ensure the contact with the bearing edge of the shell. The results are frustrating tuning issues, reduced sustain and a narrow tonal range. However, the Evans Level 360 collar’s ease-of-fit allows the drumhead to have constant contact on a level plane all the way around the drum’s bearing edge. Thus, drummers of all styles have a hassle-free experience so they can stay focused on their performance. “We’re thrilled that Level 360 is getting the acclaim it deserves right from the start,” says Dick Markus, Evans Product Manager. “It truly is leading a revolution in drumhead technology for drummers everywhere.”
The panelists offered views on the best companies, products and services they saw during the NAMM Show. Nearly 250 attendees listened as the panelists were asked to discuss their top choices in four categories:
-Best In Show- The best product or service that panelists saw at NAMM.
-Gotta Stock It- A product that retailers want to stock right now, if they haven't already got it.
-Companies to Watch- Exhibitors that have made a difference with trend-setting products or services.
-Best Accessories and Add-ons- Speaks for itself.
This year, the panelists consisted of Mike Guillot, Donovan Bankhead, Brad Boynton, Billy Cuthrell, Ted Eschliman, Alan Friedman, with each telling about their picks in four categories.
