I bought a couple of these from a local music store based on an employee's advice. They cost a little more than what I used to buy, but I was hooked as soon as I put them on my toms. They have a nice deep, solid sound. The heads don't have an excessive ring to them (I just HATE that "ping"ing sound). With other heads, I would spend an hour trying to tune out that ring. These went right on and sounded perfect. Heavy hitters like myself will find that there's no other drumhead that's closer to indestructable. As an added bonus, they look awesome on my black drums. You will not find a better drumhead than these.

I'm obviously in the minority here. I like Evans heads. The G12s sound good on the toms for all-around playing (soft to loud), and the EC2 clears are similar to Remo Pinstripes, but a little less harsh, and in my opinion best for really loud or really soft playing, but have a strange "slap" at moderate volumes. I tried the Onyx on a 14" tom - no joy. It did muffle the overtones a bit, but to get it to sound like anything other than a box required tuning it much higher than is required for the ECS's or the G12's. Apparently a lot of people like these, but I'm not one of them. I wanted to like them because they look cool, but I finally had to take the thing off the drum after I just couldn't stand the sound of it any more.

Onyx on Snare

By erick franco

from Texas

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

I used a 13" Evans Onyx on my snare drum for about 4 months; switching out about every two months. They are a great sounding snare head due to the dark tone but bright attack. I recently purchased a Remo Black Suede Emperor for my new Pearl Masters snare drum and it does not compare to the Onyx. The Remo head has NO coating, so it is a smooth black head. That instantly turned me off. Next, the Remo head feels thinner than the Evans version; it almost feels like a 1 ply head. It is also much more difficult to initially tune. I recommend this head over any other type of black heads on the market.

perfect tuning...

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

I've used Evans for years now. I bought the onyx purely for looks but I have always used at least two ply for my toms. Mainly for tuning reasons, its just easier. These heads were surprising. They tune perfectly and quickly and sound almost like a single ply head with all the attack and good warm low end. love em'

    Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

    I purchased these heads for my toms after listening to some samples of how these heads sound on the evans website. I was first made aware of these heads by reading other reviews praising the durability of these drumheads. I will concur that these heads are extremely durable. Though I didn't list any cons, I will say that a downside for some drummers might be that with the extra durability of these heads there is loss resonance and some tone. If you really enjoy the sustain on your toms these may not be the heads for you. I tend to tune my toms rather high (think Neil Peart's sound from the late 80's-mid 90's) so with these heads I found that my higher tuning practice increased attack and gave me a tone which quickly died after the initial hit. This worked well with my playing style (fusion style playing) so I found the sound pleasing to me.

    What I found surprising is how well the heads record. I have a little home studio and upon playback of some recordings I have done, the toms still have a punchy sound to them. With the increased attack, the toms came through well in the mix and the quick little doubles I often like to employ can be clearly heard.

    My personal conclusion would be that these heads work well in a medium to lower tuning range. If you're a drummer looking for durablitiy without giving up a whole lot of sound, try these heads out.

    Amazing

    By ncfc66

    from New Haven, CT

    Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

    The title says it all these heads are amazing. I own a pearl set and I used these heads to replace the generic pearl heads. My drum set instantly sounded like Alex Van Halen or Tommy Lee's set. These heads are simple to tune and deliver that deep punch I was searching for. Buy these heads.

    By Brando-UGEzw

    from Indiana

    Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

    These heads are really nice if you want lots of punch and less resonance, but beware: do not use on your snare. It sounds horrible on snares, but they're really nice for toms. Overall, a rather nice head.

    Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

    i have been playing drums for ten years now, and i have tried every head possible. this one is by far the best. i have mine on a ddrum diatribe 12x9 birch tom, and i must say even paired with the stock ressonant head it sounds amazing. i play in a heavy punk almost metal band and it gives that deep dark tom sound and it will blow minds. buy this tom.

    BIG orchestral/doom sound

    By Scott

    from undisclosed

    See all my reviews

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

    Lacking a sharp attack, hence only 4 of 5 stars, these nonetheless make your toms sound twice as thunderous (my 10" tom sounds like an 18" now) but without added volume. They're actually a little quieter on average than the stock Remo heads on my maple Pearl toms. But the soft-to-loud dynamics are improved with these so you can get loud if you want, but not when you don't want (as with a ballad).

    Great two-ply heads

    By RIneuron

    from RI

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

    Very easy to tune. Made my vintage Ludwigs sound much better than single ply heads---good attack and low sustain, but still full sound. Good for rock or pop in small rooms.
