Evans ’56 Calftone Drumheads are a new series of products geared towards drummers seeking a vintage look and sound.
These heads bring out the best of a vintage kit and evoke a classic appearance and sound from modern drums.
Calftone drumheads are a synthetic alternative to traditional calfskin. These heads embody the calfskin look and sound but with the consistency, fit, and tuning range made standard with Level 360 Technology.
Made with a 7mil film base and blended with unique materials, these heads are thinner than our bass heads (12 mil) to help optimize the sound for smaller drums, higher tunings, and greater tonal response. The approach is identical to how natural skins are used across a drum set in which thinner skins are used up top and thicker skins are used down low for increased bass response.
Sizes available are 8-18”.
