Evans Calftone Heads Now Available in UK

Evans new Calftone heads are now available in the UK. Designed to mimic the sound, look, and feel of natural calfskin, Calftone heads are said to optimise the sonic properties of vintage drums while giving newer ones a distinctly classic tone: “Big, warm, boomy bass drum sounds, and full, round tone from toms,” Evans claims.

Part of Evans’ ’56 series, named in honour of Chick Evans’ 1956 founding of the company to produce synthetic drumheads, the company says it developed Calftone to offer players the warm sound and classic look of calfskin drumheads without sacrificing the consistency and durability of a synthetic.

“The new Evans ’56 Calftone heads have just arrived and let me just say, they are superb!” says Evans artist Mark Kelso. “For any drummer searching for the warm sound and cushiony feel of a vintage head then the “56 Calftone is for you. The rebound response is excellent and the sound is pure tone. Love that slick new logo as well. The ‘56’ Calftone is welcome new/old addition to the already fine line of Evans drumheads.”
