OVERVIEW

A synthetic alternative to traditional calfskin drum heads.

Calftone heads have the calfskin look and sound but with the consistency, fit and tuning range made standard with Level 360 Technology. Calftone is made using a 12-mil Mylar base blended with unique materials to produce warm, full and rich tones.

These heads bring out the best of a vintage kit and evoke a classic appearance and sound from modern drums. Can be be used as both a batter and resonant side head.

Not durable; not a great tone either

      Comments about Evans Calftone Drum Head:

      I bought a 14" Evans 56 Calftone head to put on my 5 1/2" deep Pearl Carbonply Mahogany snare. For about a year before that I had been using an Aquarian Modern Vintage Medium Weight Single Ply for my snare. And I thought this would sound similar but with a more authentic calfskin look. What I found was that a) This head did not sound as good as the Aquarian head at any tuning and b) The coating started to separate from the layer underneath after literally 1 hour of playing. I was at a practice for a country band I'm in, not playing obscenely loud (I still have never cracked a cymbal and never broken through a drum head in 17 years of playing)... And I noticed that the top layer of this head was starting to "bubble up." The problem only worsened as the rehearsal continued. So not only did this head not sound as good as the Aquarian Modern Vintage, but it also seemed to be of poor construction quality.

      Bottom line... The Modern Vintage may not look quite as much like real calfskin as this head; but I've tried multiple "vintage" style heads this year from all the major brands, including this one, and Aquarian's Modern Vintage is still the best-sounding and most durable drumhead in this category, in my opinion.

      FYI, as far as drumheads go on my kit... I use Aquarian Modern Vintage Singly-ply on my snare, Evans Hazy 300 snare side, Modern Vintage II on my tom batters and bass reso, Aquarian Superkick II clear on my bass batter, and Aquarian Class Clears on my tom resos. This combination gives me a full, deep tone without sacrificing much in terms of volume. Another head I like to use on my snare batter is a Remo Controlled Sound, clear or coated; both sound great.

        Comments about Evans Calftone Drum Head:

        Ever since calfskin went the way of the do-do, I have missed the lovely round "organic" sound of wood on skin. The harsh transient attack of wood or nylon on Mylar has always gotten in the way of beautiful tone. These new coated heads solve the problem. They sound great. Although we can't yet evaluate the durability of the Calftone 56 coating, fresh out of the box the heads sound quite lovely. The microphone and these old eardrums are in love with the new Evans heads.
