Okay...Let's get started with the "battering." (No pun intended...Chuckle...Chuckle.) These heads were everything that I have ever dreamed of until I actually bought them. I put these heads on a couple of days ago and to my dismay...I have heard better tonal quality from a dead carp than from these heads. I am a big fan of Evans' products but these Hydraulics are a bit disappointing. The product reviews regarding Evans Blue Hydraulic heads were fairly convincing and favorable in relation to the sound I was attempting to achieve. However, the sound produced is dead, non-sustaining, and virtually inapplicable to any live setting that I will ever encounter. The good part is that I will transfer these heads to my studio kit and use EQ to get the desired recorded sound. In short, I would have to say that the live sound is dead and if you want that "warm" focused sound, go with the G2 Coated heads for the live stuff and use these Blue Hydraulics for the studio work.

A personalized sound

By Simao

Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

Swapped my Aquarian 2's out for these and was much impressed with the Hydraulics' warm, bloomy sound. However, I was much impressed ONLY AFTER I HAD TUNED THEM CORRECTLY. Unless I matched them up with the EC Resonant heads and tuned each drum to the note I wanted, the heads sounded muffled and cardboardy. Once I had them tuned, though, they opened up and gave me a large, fatty tone. You'll have to tune these accurately, but they do offer a beautiful sound if you take the time.

    Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

    I have been playing for 48 years, have never come across a drum head like an Evans. I have an Evans head on my bass drum and on my 12" tom. What a sound quality it produces !! I need one now for my 13" tom to improve my sets sound. When my 16" goes, I will definetly get an Evans!

      Best Head

      By Devon Lowman

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

      Easily the best head I have ever used. I've tried: Evans G2, Remo Ambassador/AmbX, Remo Pinstripe, Remo Black Suede, Evans G1, Aquarian II, Remo Renaisannce, and a few others. The Hydraulic head provides a deep, punching, yet resonant tone. It's honestly the tone i've been looking for ever since i started drummer. Also, it doesnt require muffling rings or moon gels. Phenomenal drum head. Please just buy this head, I don't know how else to convince you.

      Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

      A great sounding head for toms.I put the Evans EC Resonant on the bottom and a great sound became better. Tension these heads tight on the top and bottom and you still get a low sound with a very short sustain. Tuning is a breeze and the sound is a must have.

          If you're after a funky full natural sound these are the heads to use. The venues I use them in are horn band funk, jazz, and fusion. I've been using these heads since the 70's. I've tried many other styles of drum heads, still my favorite.

          I tried these heads our on my very high end Mapex kit and they made a great kit sound even better. They are easy to tune, have very minimal ring, even on the 8 inch tom, and they have a really nice deep tone. They are just awesome..wish I would have tried them earlier.

          I've been using Evans alot longer than I care to think about there quality and sound are something I can awalys count on. I have never had a head failure and the sound for tom toms is unsurpassed. No fifteen inch head though, I have to go to the competiors pinstripe head for the sound of a oiled two ply head.

          This is a first time for me using Evans hydraulic heads. I saw them around 35 years ago, and I shouldn't have waiting that long to try them. They make your lower toms sound like cannons. They do eliminate alot of the overtones, but I use some extra moongels on my 10 12 & 14 toms. I replaced all 9 of my drums with these. They sound great and look awesome. I also added a clear evans patch for my bass drum to help the head last longer from my double bass pedal. Don't wait as long as I did to try them!

          Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

          Nice sound: muted, but with just the right amount of tone left whether tuned high or low. However, despite Evans' claims that the Hydros are their most durable heads, the top layer of my snare batter head is already tearing away after only about a month of use. I'm not a frequent player, or a heavy player, so there's no excuse for these heads to be breaking so soon. Good sounding heads, but the lack of durability is very disappointing.

          I have played on these heads for fifteen years and I love them. I wanted to go to Pin stipes but my bass player won't let me. I think he loves the sound better than I do. The sound is so warm and natural. I think i'll stick with a proven winner.

          I first used these Blue Hydralic heads back in the 70s playing with The Molly Cribb Band in Jersey with tight drum miking and never had a problem, Got away from them for awhile but just bought them again and I am so glad. Once you tune them in they sing to you without the ring and they make your drums sound a mile deep. I will never use another drum head. You will love them.

          These are the quietest heads I have ever used, but this is a good thing because you can play with greater velocity and be at the same volume, and playing at higher velocities makes you look cooler when you play. and looking cooler gets you the girls. So basically these heads will get you girls. I was at first frustrated with these heads because the oil is unevenly dispersed and constantly moves, which makes the sweet spot of the drum very small and constantly moving, but after 15 seconds of really playing I found out that playing the sweet spot is of little importance with these heads because the whole head sounds great.
