I have a Sound Percussion drum set which of course is not a top of the line drum set. It is actually a low class with terrible stock heads. I upgraded to these heads and it completely changed my outlook on my set. It pretty much showed that you dont have to buy an expensive set to have great sound, you just need the right heads and these are them

New drum head/reso combo experiment.

I was looking for a new combination of batters and resos, but the onyx was a bit too muffled even for my liking. Went with coated G2s over coated G1s instead.

Decent Head

By Joe C.

from Connersville, IN

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

I believe Evans was trying to compete with Remo's Black Suedes, but these don't even stack up. These fall out of tune easy and don't have a very satisfying tone. I've had every brand of head on my set and Evans always seems to dissapoint. I think it might be the crimp ring's flexibility.

BEAUTIFUL SOUND, GREAT FEEL

By Alex

from AZ

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

first of all, these heads look awesome but thats not the important part. These heads sound amazing! they really reduce unwanted overtones, they reduce slight ringing and eliminate some of the bad sound from not tuning correctly (sometimes we all get something wrong in the tuning dept) they are deeper/lower/darker sounding but that allows you to tune them tighter so you still get a good tone!!. they also feel GREAT! the rebound is amazing BECAUSE you can tune them tighter. this is what really makes these so great, they dont just sound better, they feel better. people that say they are too low just dont experiment with tuning these properly. a few more twists of your key and these babies sing. HIGHLY recommend these to anyone regardless of genre.

Smooth!

By Anthony

from Hernando, MS

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

I recently replaced my Remo Emperor heads with these. Wow! They made my drums come alive. They have a very nice tone and I love the texture as well. They almost feel like fabric and they are also easy to tune. They have an awesome appearance to boot! Can't say enough good things about these heads!

Why not?

By Joe

from Lincoln, Ne

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

I found that these heads had a quick sharp attack but also a short sustain. If you're playing anything hard these heads will give you that quick tone. But they will be a little muffled.

Black Gold

By Ron

from Mechanicsville, VA

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

These heads sound fantastic! These replaced the stock Pearl heads and are well worth the extra money. Great tone, reduces over tones, excellent responsiveness, and they look great! Highly recommend them!

Boost up your kit by getting the Evans Onyx!

By ZildjianDrummer41

from Buffalo, New York

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

Now, if you think you have bad sounding drums, then you can change that. Get Evans Onyx drumheads. Not only do they have cool looks, but they deliver great tone and emotion. If you want to get your toms to sound high pitched, then make them that way. Now I don't have the best drums out there, so I knew I had to get new heads. At first, I got these because of the looks, but when I put these on and tuned them to the perfect pitch, I knew these were the best drum heads out there. I Highly Reccomend You Buy These Heads!!!

Does the Trick

By Dean Johnsrud

from Northlake, Il.

Comments about Evans Onyx 2-Ply Drum Head:

After 5 years of sound control issues, I finally got the sound contorl I needed with the ONIX line. I can keep the warmth and attack I want while having more control over ressonance and volume on my BIRCH kit. Although, it seems that 14 inch and up are a bit touchier but once you get it where you want it, IT'S GREAT! I've gotten nothing but compliments on ther sound of my kit.
