I've been using the hydraulic heads since the late 80's and I just can't say enough good about them. For those that say they make your drums sound like "cardboard boxes" you need your hearing checked. Good tuning skills will make these heads sing and that's really all it takes. No need for Moongels or other ring control devices with these as the oil does that for you. Just fit them on and bang away. It's really that easy.

I've been playing drums over 35 years and have played many brands of drums, heads and so on...
I have played everything from blues to top 40 to hard rock and metal for the most part and was looking for a more controlled sound, not a completely dead thumpy plasticy sound. These heads have got to be the Worst I have ever played! The Only thing they've got going for them is the red color. If Evans were to remove the oil from within the two plies, this would be a great head. But the oil is what ruins them. I just think... WHAT was Evans thinking when they came up with this big FAIL?!!

      Comments about Evans Red Hydraulic Drum Head:

      I tune these as low as they can go to the point just where there are no wrinkles in the top head. Accompanied by EC resonants on bottom tuned a step or two higher than the batter. Wicked fat sound with very little sustain and absolutely no ring. Perfect, fat and thuddy sound. Danny Carey would cut his ear off if he heard my toms! Not for the individual who would like to hear the drum "speak" so to say.

          Comments about Evans Red Hydraulic Drum Head:

          Sounds better than hydraulics I used to use. Sill has some ring and is great as a batter and experiment with different bottom heads. Makes my floor tom fill with tone and then a nice round decay. Also different hoops wil affect the sound as well. I have s-hoops on this drum and it just kills. This is sill has the tubby hydraulic sound with the right amount of zing. Live a little and try one.

                    I've used Evans hydraulic heads for a long time and 100% dismiss any talk that they make your drums sound "like cardboard boxes". If tuned right, they do not. The durability of these is superb and the main reason I use them is I don't need Moon Gels or any other ring suppression device. The oil does that for me. The hydraulics simply work and do what I need of them. That alone is worth the money.

                            I recently changed from Evans blue hydraulic to the new red 360 series. I was not planning to put this series on my small 8x10 tom to keep a difference between it and the rest of my toms. After tuning my other toms in I had to do this one also, wow! I have the tension much tighter on this drum and I have great response, a deep punch yet it is bright, very warm and for the accent sound I have used this tom for the new head is perfect. I feel like I have better response and a defined tone that projects well and I use no dampening of any type, without an uncontrolled over ring.

                              I am an Evan's fan, I have many happy years of using the Blue hydraulic heads. This is bright, rich, a warm tone. It needs less dampening, allows the tone to stay lower while the head is tighter, and a more natural sound. I am very impressed with the new sound and the feel while playing, the appearance. It give a great warm red reflection on the underside of my cymbals.
