          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.

              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 Sandstone

                from Maryland

                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:

                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.

                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.

                All I can say is I cant believe the clarity and deep tone that these beast give out!! They are actually much quieter than other heads but the deep low tone they give is unbeatable, with mics hooked up to them they will be hard to beat!!
