I play every style of music, from Funk to Rock to Straight Ahead Jazz to Avant Garde and Evans Drumheads provide me a wide selection of sonic possibilities to fulfill all of these different musical situations. Evans Drumheads feel great, sound great and are impeccably manufactured.

An Evans Drumheads player since 1989.
