Great tone and durability...

These heads are the best I have ever played. They have a great warm tone and sustain. They last longer than any other skins I have used in the past. A great value!

I like Evans heads, don't get me wrong. But these are SO SO SO dead sounding... more dead sounding than Pinstripes. If you want every last bit of resonance taken out of your toms, these are the heads for you! You are left with this weird dead mid-range "tone" (if you want to call it that). I tried these heads on oak, maple, and composite (REMO) shells and they pretty much sounded equally disappointing on them all. Kind of like putting 10 pieces of Moon Gel on tom head. On a positive note, these are cool looking and really durable.

Sweet Sounds

By Nuju

from Chapel Hill, NC

Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

These heads are frickin' AWESOME! I first tried them a year ago, and the sound just blew me away. They have a very wet, musical tone with a short sustain. But they don't fade so fast as to sound dead. They're just right there in that sweet spot. Evans has really hit their stride with these babies. These are the Pinstripe's biggest competition right now. If you're an Evans man, pick these up!

excellent heads for the money.

By Frederick Lukens

from Croydon,Pa.

Comments about Evans Hydraulic Blue Tom Batter:

I have these exact blue heads on my drums-I did'nt know they head 'em in clear or black or I would have gotten them.I have had them for at least 14 years and they have'nt damaged yet.Anyways,these drums sound like thunder on the low toms and really give the small toms pronunciation and overall improve your sound.I have felt strips on all my drums,which are Ludwig classics,and I use 2 felt strips on the batter side of the floor toms and one felt strip on the toms.For the bass drums,I use these heads on the batter and my original ludwig resonant heads and use one felt strip on each of the bass heads,and these heads sound so boomy and heavy,which is good.I have a small room so it helps if you're in a large studio or playing them in a large hall.Only bad part is if they would add Ludwigs' headlock system to it,it would be perfect because these things change tune and crack like crazy along teh water.but if you want great sounding heads that are durable and full of resonance,get em.You can tension 'em up high and they will sound lie you are in a concert hall.
