The Evans EMAD ’56 Calftone bass drumhead is tailor-made for drummers who crave a vintage look and sound. Made from synthetic calfskin, this head looks and sounds like the real deal but boasts incredible tuning consistency and tonal range, courtesy of Evans’ groundbreaking Level 360 Technology.
Like other EMAD heads, this ’56 Calftone features adjustable damping for maximum tonal control of your drum. Warm, full, and incredibly rich sounding, this drumhead brings vintage kits to life and injects modern drums with classic looks and sonic coloration.
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.
