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.

      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.

      Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

      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!

          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.

            This drum heads are amazing they work great for hardcore,death metal music. They are really muffed so if you want something loud this is not for you but if your into muffed/Dark drums this is for you.

            A personalized sound

            By Simao

            from Saint Louis

            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.
