Evans™ Calftone drumheads are a synthetic alternative to traditional calfskin. They embody the look and sound of a natural skin but with the consistency, fit, and tuning range made standard with Level 360 Technology™. These heads bring out the best of a vintage kit and evoke a classic appearance and sound from modern drums.
Calftone is made using a 12mil Mylar base blended with unique materials to produce warm, full, and rich tones. Combined with EMAD features, these heads have the benefit of adjustable damping for added attack and focus.
Jazz, funk, rockabilly, classic country, and any other genre that prizes richness of sound over volume and punch will benefit from Calftone, but if durability under heavy playing is a key factor you may want to look for a different model.
