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.
Made with a 7mil film base and blended with unique materials, these heads are thinner than our bass heads to help optimize the sound for smaller drums, higher tunings, and greater tonal response.
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.
