Evens makes quality drum heads. I have used them along with others. They measure up to the standards set by Remo. Remo has been there forever. I played Remo heads when I was a kid. Evens heads give a viable alternative to Remo in that they are durable, the tune easily, and they produce good sound without a lot of extra work. That make them a great competitor to Remo and competition is always good because it makes both products better. So try the Evens heads but try Remo and Aquarian and see what works best for your taste.
I buy the best product for the money. Usually, I find that I get what I want while saving a few sheckles. Practice hard and become a great drummer and all these companies will give you this stuff for free so they can say you use their stuff so stop messing around and get good.
Anyone who complains of over-ring does not fully understand the tuning process. Hydraulic heads by nature dampen the sound of the drum because the oil and two ply heads decrease the vibration of the batter head. That annoying ring is caused by the differential between the batter and resonant head. I have been playing professionally for 41 years and have used all kinds of heads. The heads don't matter that much!! I know, some of you just choked on your energy drink but the only things that really matter in tuning is even tension and the relationship between top and bottom heads.
Any evenly tensioned head, tuned correctly in relation to its counterpart resonant head, will provide that great sound. Its easier to tune hydraulics to get that fat low end sound. But you can get the same sound, with more effort, from other kinds of heads. Do the work! Spend time tuning in quarter turns and get what you really want. Try different tensions between the heads. Always tune each head to moderate tension then set the drum on the carpet and do CPR to break the head over the bearing edges. Once that is accomplished, find the sweet spot with regard to tension. Get to know how each drum likes to be tuned. Each drum will perform for you if you learn how to get what you want out of it.
All head makers have dud heads that crack or seperate. Its the nature of drum heads. We beat the hell out of them. Buy quality heads then try a different set next time. Don't settle!! Professionals don't settle. Playing the same head for years may give you the sound you like but believe me, guitar players change strings because they sound dead, drummers change heads for the same reason. Otherwise play trash cans.
I've played almost every kind of music live on stages all over the country. Finding your sound doesn't matter as much as learning stick control. If you can't control the sticks, you can't use "your sound" to benefit anyone. Rudiments are the key to being the drummer you really want to be. There is no beat or fill you can possibly do that does not contain rudiments. Get a drum pad, go to vicfirth.com/education and practice, practice, practice. An hour a day minimum. Soon you will forget about the hype of who makes the best heads, sticks, blah, blah, blah.
The major drum and accessories makers all produce a pretty even product. You may have your favorites, I have mine. Find what works for you.
Just because something is expensive doesn't mean its the best. Don't buy something because its the most expensive. Buy things that work for you.

Where Does the Sound Go?

Into the oil, dude. These heads sound really cool once they break in, and they're great for quieter situations but i can't place enough emphasis on the fact that they're Dead As Crap And they are very, very difficult to tune as comparable to other two-ply heads. The 13 inch head i ordered was defective, sent it back, got another defective one- not too happy about that. Never buying these again. You'd think these would at least be good for miking since they're dead but they sometimes have some ugly overtones that are a pain to get rid of. They don't really hold their tune, but as i said they break in pretty nicely after like 5 sessions and they are super focused, definitely don't need extra-muffling (you might as well just play underwater) I'd say they are loud enough for small churches and for practicing and that's it. For dead heads, PII's mike up alot better and give more back when you hit harder. Hydraulics just swallow up every decible they can get their greasy hands on.

    Comments about Evans Hydraulic Black Tom Batter Drumhead:

    These fit the bill perfectly on my lower-end Ludwig Accent kit & I really love 'em on my Pearl PTE concert-tom kit. They are not for every drumset (or drummer) out there, but they certainly do a great job for me, depending on which kit I use them on. Just another tool in the toolbox. I prefer the Evans EC2's on my maple-shelled Mapex & clear Vistalite kits, but they can work wonders on an overly-ringy, unruly snare as well. Great to have options & Evans delivers big time!

    Rock drumming in a practice room. Deep, dark sound with very little overtones. I have a young drummer that wants to sound like all his metal heroes and this does the trick.

              It's common knowledge that Evans Hydrolics are a good choice to get a fat, classic rock kind of sound. I bought a set to fix up a little First Act kids drumset. It was a Christmas gift for the neighbor kid but it improved the sound sufficiently that those drums would be fine for an open mic or other little quick gig

                    These are definitely as advertised. Very heavy with a quick decay and a thunderous boom. I would say they are indestructible and you feel like you can beat the heck out of them. I still prefer the remo pinstripes for recording as they have a very light overtone. These are great for rock or heavy metal and especially great for live music.

                      Wanted heads that sounded great but also allowed my neighbor's some respite. Got my kit set up in my upstairs bedroom for practice/fun. These heads really did the job of getting my 72 Slingerland Champagne Sparkle set in perfect condition for reliving some great memories.
