The Heavyweight snare batter head is the thickest, most durable film-based drumhead in the Evans product line. Designed with the “heavy hitter” in mind, the Heavyweight is 23mil thick at the center of the head. While thicker heads often “choke out” due to extreme mass, the Heavyweight reverse dot patch flexes and allows for a wider dynamic range.  Heavweight durability doesn't have to mean a heavily weighted feel!

Key Features and Benefits

  • Construction: 10mil + 10mil + 3mil reverse dot patch
  • 23mil thickness provides maximum durability for the heaviest of hitters
  • Film combination creates compressed attack and a short sustain
  • Level 360 collar prevents head from choking out due to thickness
