      OVERVIEW

      Extremely durable heads for torrid metal and progressive drummers.

      With big drum kits comes big responsibility. High toms need to sound punchy and robust, not small and weak. Low toms need to sound articulate and clear, not muddy or muffled. Black Chrome heads have got you covered. The unique design accentuates the mid-to-low-end frequencies that small drums need to sound rich and deep to match the rest of your kit. Precise articulation and tight sustain let your low toms and floor toms sound naturally thunderous, clear and periscope-deep at any tension - no tape, rings or sticky messes required.

      On stage and in the studio, Black Chrome heads really come alive. They are the tom microphones' best friends, requiring significantly less EQ'ing and tweaking than similar heads. So you can work less and play more with the deep tom sound you want.

      Designed to satisfy the heaviest of hitters, Black Chrome heads restore the mid-to-low-end frequencies that vanish when your tree-trunk sticks deliver crushing blows to your toms. With a 7mil clear top over a 7.5mil black bottom, the sleek and unique 2-ply design adds plenty of body and deep tone to support the natural high-frequency attack of high-impact drumming.

      The Black Chrome's sexy, black-mirror finish lends serious attitude to your music while its clear top ply keeps any black marks off your drumstick tips, white snare head and cymbals.

      The Evans engineering and design teams were focused on discovering the perfect combination of materials for Black Chrome. They experimented with unique film pairings, custom adhesives and out-of-the-box design concepts to produce a drumhead of superior tone and durability.

      Power drummers no longer have to choose between great sound and long-lasting durability. The unique Black Chrome design does more than just make your toms sound great - it keeps them sounding great long after the heads have been installed. Custom adhesives unify the durable 7mil and 7.5mil films to produce a virtually seamless super-material. Plus, exclusive Roll-over Hoop technology provides extra durability at the widest range of tensions.

      FEATURES
      • 2-Ply construction: 7mil optically clear film over 7.5mil black film
      • Roll-over hoop technology
      • Black, mirror-like appearance

        Played a lot of drum kits with a different drum heads over the years. Did everything like cutting strips of cloth to put under the batter head to dead ringers. If you are the type of drummer that likes a deeper, darker thud sound and still get the bounce back ( I am) then you will love these. If not then you need to experiment and find something else. For me these are a perfect tom head. Have added a photo of my Yamaha set up when they were new (not anymore). This 14" head is for the new 14" tom I added but not in the picture. The heads do not look that "pretty" since being played but they still sound great. A drum head that has a lot of smudge marks is a good thing! A drum head with deep dents...not so much...know what I mean.

        i recently bought this head and it looked great at first. after playing on it for a few days it didnt look so good any more. it also doesnt sound good after hitting it kinda hard for a few days. i personally dont like the sound of it when its tuned medium to low but i think it would sound great as my high toms but it isnt that great for low toms. it also has a very high choke point which means it will break before you choke or muffle the head

            I bought these heads after playing a friends kit that had them at a gig, and they are great. Fairley easy to tune and you get a great deep tone out of them that is great for rock, pop, and punk. Extremely pleased with the build quality and the looks on these and will be buying again shortly.

              I am very picky when the sound my drums make. When I read the specs on the heads I thought that's exactly the kind of heads I need, and what it says is what you will get. It has a very warm tone to it. When I got my first head in all I had to do was put it on and with no tuning it had a really great tone to it.

                      Well, these drum heads were not what I expected. They are very beautiful, and you can see your reflection in it clearly. I didn't really want to hit them because of the scuffs, but oh well. Upon hitting them, they have a nice deep tone like they advertised. I have seen so many reviews with people saying that they are muffled and dead, but I have to disagree completely. These heads are just a deeper toned, darker sounding G2 with a little more durability, and they sound amazing. I definitely recommend these heads. If you use G2's give these a try.

                        Purchased 8,10,12,13 and 16 " black chrome heads to replace the pinstripes on my ludwig classics
                        Sounded good right out of the box just a few turns of the drum key was all they needed. They were so easy to tune and they sound great. Just the right amount of ring and a beautiful tone
                        I'm sold

                          I got this head to replace old ones. I was using dead ringers on the old ones and absolutely hated dealing with them. So I wanted a deeper head to eliminate the over ring. I was skeptical because of other reviews saying these were bad heads. I decided to just get them and try them and I glad I did they are the perfect sounding head for my tastes. The sound is punchy and with little sustain, it sounds like a Evans Hydraulics head with a dead ringer. I would recommend these to anyone who likes a deeper "thud."

                          Ever since I first saw these I was curious as to how they would sound. I normally use coated G2s, which I love, but I wanted to give these a try. I find they sound a lot like the the G2s with a little more attack. They look nice, even on a white drum set. The only minor drawback is that they scuff like a clear head, but because of the black ply, it stands out more. Of course that doesn't affect the sound quality at all. I will probably switch all my toms to these (I just switched 2 initially to see how they sounded.)
