Product Description

Evans Calftone drumheads have a synthetic coating that gives the look and sound of calfskin. Warm, responsive, and open, these drumheads are a great choice for low and medium volume live playing, and studio recording.

A single ply bass drumhead, made with one 12mil ply and a special synthetic fiber top layer. The Evans Calftone is designed to have the look and sound of calfskin, with an added boost to the midrange and low-end frequencies. This drumhead has a warmer sound than other 12mil heads, while still giving a little brightness to the attack. The construction makes this drumhead responsive to lighter touches, and allows for a moderate amount of sustain. The synthetic fiber coating also helps to reduce overtones, making tuning easier.

Note: this is the Bass Drum version of the Calftone. Slightly thinner snare and tom versions are available.
Note: Evans lists the thickness as 12mil, however the addition of the synthetic fiber means this drumhead is slightly thicker.
