Evans 16" Calftone Tom Drum Head
Evans 16" Calftone Drum Head
It looks like a calfskin! It sounds like a calfskin! And it feels like a calfskin! But it's not calfskin, it's Evans '56 Calftone. Manufactured in New York from advanced synthetic materials, and fitted with D'Addario's Level 360 Technology™ to serve up the warm, familiar sound you love with the quality and consistency a moderndrummer demands.
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 to help optimize the sound for smaller drums, higher tunings, and greater tonal response.
Introducing Level 360 — the revolutionary new drumhead technology that's staking a claim for the freedom of drummers everywhere. Freedom to spend more time playing not tuning, jamming not cramming, and expressing themselves with tonal range like never before. From here on out, Evans drumheads will be leading the charge across the board into a new era of innovation & superior performance all-around — 360 degrees to be exact.
For over 40 years, Evans has been a pioneer of drum head manufacturing and design. Known for innovative designs such as EMAD, EC2S, and the Hydraulic series, Evans drum heads are made in the USA in a state of the art manufacturing facility. Acquired in 1996 by D’Addario and Company, the global leader in musical instrument accessories, the Evans brand is synonymous with quality and consistency.
