      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.

      BIG orchestral/doom sound

      By Scott

      from undisclosed

      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).

          Due to my unique drum set this head fit sloppy and loose. The only head that I found that could work is the Evans EMAD. The rim surrounding the drum head is thicker than this head. There was no recommendation as to what brand of drum heads would be best when the set was purchased.
