Evans at PASIC 2010

Evans Drumheads is pleased to announce its success at this year’s Percussive Arts Society International Convention.

PASIC is the world’s largest percussion event, featuring over 120 concerts, clinics, master classes, labs, workshops, panels and presentations and took place from November 10 – 13 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. The program showcases all areas of percussion, including drum set, marching, keyboard, symphonic, world, recreational, education, music technology, and much more.

The Evans booth showcased drum set replicas of setups for Peter Erskine, Jojo Mayer, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez and Jerry Gaskill. Evans also featured various artist clinics and concerts, including performances by Chris Coleman, Thomas Pridgen, Dom Famularo, Marcus Santos, Jeff Queen, and many more.

In addition, Evans debuted the Hybrid-S Marching Snare Head as well as the System Blue Tenor Head. Inspired from the design of the award-winning Hybrid batter series, the Hybrid-S (Hybrid-Soft) Marching Snare Batter features two unique fibers that, when blended together, deliver a soft and sensitive feel with superior snare response desired by the world’s top marching ensembles. The System Blue tenor head was designed in cooperation with the Blue Devils percussion staff, the head is a 2-ply design with 7mil top-ply and 7.5mil bottom. This combination delivers tonal clarity and projection while increasing durability and pitch stability, reducing the need for frequent tuning.

This year marked the arrival of the first ever Puresound Custom Pro Challenge. Contestants were to change a set of Puresound Custom Pro snare wires as fast as they could. Over $2,000 in prizes was given away to various participants and the Custom Pro Champion, Caleb Pickering, won the challenge with a final time of 24.2 seconds!
