The Closest Thing to Calfskin
Drummers who swear by calfskin heads for jazz and classic rock have another option in the Evans ’56 Calftone series. These synthetic drumheads have the look, feel, and sound of real calfskin, yet they offer the modern innovations Evans is known for – Level 360 collars for better seating on bearing edges and weather resistance for a stabler tone. And at just 7-mil thick, Evans ’56 Calftone heads are more sensitive than even the thinnest hide heads.
Evans Drumheads: celebrating 60 years of innovation
Evans celebrates its 60th year in the industry with the debut of its ’56 Calftone series. It’s hard to believe that only 60 years ago, drummers had no other options than calfskin and rawhide. But Chick Evans and company helped change modern music forever by making synthetic drumheads available to the masses. These today include the popular G2 and EMAD heads for drum sets and Tri-Center heads for world percussion.
