Your initial post was about the "fat, schmushed-together lettering" aspect of the logo so that's what I looked at. The point of my post is that the "fat, schmushed-together lettering" really isn't much different than it was a decade ago since that's what you called out @bpaluzzi for.Not to mention losing the oval and adding DRUMHEADS and removing USA. Other than that, nearly the same.
I still have that logo on blue hydraulics, which rest on my 70's Ludwig Stainless Steel kit.Though it no longer exists, here’s a photo from flyover country for you ‘coasters. I remember seeing this painted on a building in Dodge City Kansas, the original home of Evans. A bit has changed since then.
Specifically with the UV1s, I find them easier to tune, more durable, and - to my ears - just sound better than Ambassadors. The coating seems to act like a minimal dampener - maybe like a thicker Ambassador without the weight of an Emperor. I generally have UV1s on all of my snares and I really like how they sound under brushes. I also like the Calftone better than Fiberskyn, though I find both not to be very durable. The Stratas are really nice, too - kind of like the Renaissance. I currently have them on my Craviottos. They’re really dynamic and warm.What do you like better about Evans?
OK THAT does it! I’m banning ALL Evans drumhead products, new logo or not.SEE !?!?!?
I told you so!
Damned Evans boxes behaving just like Evans Boxes! Not gettin’ off yer damn lawn!!!
