Overview

With big drum kits comes big responsibility. High toms need to sound punchy and robust, not small and weak. Low toms need to sound articulate and clear, not muddy or muffled. Black Chrome heads have got you covered. The unique design accentuates the mid-to-low-end frequencies that small drums need to sound rich and deep to match the rest of your kit. Precise articulation and tight sustain let your low toms and floor toms sound naturally thunderous, clear and periscope-deep at any tension - no tape, rings or sticky messes required.

On stage and in the studio, Black Chrome heads really come alive. They are the tom microphones' best friends, requiring significantly less EQ'ing and tweaking than similar heads. So you can work less and play more with the deep tom sound you want.

Designed to satisfy the heaviest of hitters, Black Chrome heads restore the mid-to-low-end frequencies that vanish when your tree-trunk sticks deliver crushing blows to your toms. With a 7mil clear top over a 7.5mil black bottom, the sleek and unique 2-ply design adds plenty of body and deep tone to support the natural high-frequency attack of high-impact drumming.

The Black Chrome's sexy, black-mirror finish lends serious attitude to your music while its clear top ply keeps any black marks off your drumstick tips, white snare head and cymbals.

The Evans engineering and design teams were focused on discovering the perfect combination of materials for Black Chrome. They experimented with unique film pairings, custom adhesives and out-of-the-box design concepts to produce a drumhead of superior tone and durability.

Power drummers no longer have to choose between great sound and long-lasting durability. The unique Black Chrome design does more than just make your toms sound great - it keeps them sounding great long after the heads have been installed. Custom adhesives unify the durable 7mil and 7.5mil films to produce a virtually seamless super-material. Plus, exclusive Roll-over Hoop technology provides extra durability at the widest range of tensions.

Features
  • 2-Ply construction: 7mil optically clear film over 7.5mil black film
  • Roll-over hoop technology
  • Black, mirror-like appearance

  • Available in sizes from 6" to 20"

Played a lot of drum kits with a different drum heads over the years. Did everything like cutting strips of cloth to put under the batter head to dead ringers. If you are the type of drummer that likes a deeper, darker thud sound and still get the bounce back ( I am) then you will love these. If not then you need to experiment and find something else. For me these are a perfect tom head. Have added a photo of my Yamaha set up when they were new (not anymore). This 14" head is for the new 14" tom I added but not in the picture. The heads do not look that "pretty" since being played but they still sound great. A drum head that has a lot of smudge marks is a good thing! A drum head with deep dents...not so much...know what I mean.

I play a Gretsch set and I've primarily used Evans and Aquarian heads. I realize that rating these is very subjective and largely a matter of taste. I'm sure these are decent heads, but here are a few reasons I won't be getting them again. (1) Unlike other black heads I've used, these have a gloss finish. Overhead lights will produce a fairly irritating glare in your eyes if your kit is angled in such a way to reflect them. (2) Unlike other Evans heads I've used, I had a difficult time tuning these on all 3 of my toms. If it had just been one, I would've chalked it up to my ineptitude, but when all 3 of them were trouble, I had to wonder. (3) I'm not crazy about the tone. To my ears, these sound more ringy than thumpy. Not the effect I'm shooting for.

Clearly, your mileage may vary. But if I were to buy black heads again, I'd be more likely to buy the Aquarian Response 2 heads with which I've had good luck in the past.

      Was amazed that GC didn't have them in store. Granted not that much on demand, but if you show you sell it, why not have at least a couple in stock. Over all a good buy for your money!

                Comments about Evans Black Chrome Tom Batter Drumhead:

                I have always use the Evans EC2 clear drum heads on my kit during live performances and studio work, the black chrome heads sound more deeper and darker than the EC2, for me that is a good sound. The drawback is the head does have a little overtone on it during studio work
