The Evans Hydraulic Black tom drumhead features two plies sandwiching a thin layer of oil, giving the head an especially fat, deep, and short sound made famous by early-70s rock. The oil decreases sustain, while enhancing attack and low end. Plus, Evans Hydraulic Black drumheads are famously easy to tune, so they're a great choice for troublesome drums or beginning players wanting instant access to great sound.
Evans has been in the music industry for more than 40 years and pioneered the plastic drumhead in 1956. These weatherproof heads changed the drum world forever. Their state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Farmingdale, New York, produce heads that are unparalleled in consistency, durability, and sound quality. Evans is looking to the present and future needs of drummers worldwide.
