        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.

                    Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drumhead:

                    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.

                    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.

                        Bought 10, 12 , and 14 inch heads for a Yamaha Stage Custom kit that has been through heck and back. Replaced my old Genera's with these heads and my toms sound like toms again. I was a bit skeptical at first because of the matte finish, but, was impressed once I put them on.

                        I bought these for looks and sound, and couldn't be happier (unless they were free :)
                        I use them on my Yamaha Stage kit unfinished maple shells and it looks so classy.
                        I play in a folk-rock band and I like the fat, classic sound these have on the toms. Very pronounced lows on my bigger toms.
                        Gets rid of loose high freq ring that seems to occur too often when gigging and changing weather conditions.
                        I am betting they can take a beating too - no dents or big scratches as with less quality clear heads so far (few weeks of play time)

                        GET 'EM!

                        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.
