    I hear, when you cough while wearing it, it actually sounds like the intro to "Hot for Teacher".

    Very smart. I didn't know they made Evans drum heads.

    Hey Guys, as this probably comes at some kind of a cost to D'Addario, and they are doing this to do the right thing, I for one will be buying D'Addario products to help support the company, and I really think that the TGP community should do the same. Let's help support this great company and show them that we appreciate their commitment to helping during this crisis.

    I've been a D'Addario string user pretty much most of my guitar playing life. This just cemented my choice for the rest of it. Kudos to them.

    This will also be useful for when COVID's over and people want to play drums on their face. :aok

    Ron we always use their strings as well. Looks like we will surely continue. Be safe.

    Despite the growing popularity of 'Murica bashing, I've never seen another place where so many in private industry and the citizenry voluntarily engage, often at their own risk or loss, to contribute to a greater cause on behalf of the need of complete strangers. Good on D'Addario.
