It's hard to believe that the Evans EQ system bass drum heads have been around for over 3 decades. Originally starting out with paired EQ1, EQ2 and EQ3 systems offering revolutionary venting, internal dampening and resonance control - these heads quickly became the go to for the best bass drum sounds imaginable.
The EQ resonant series heads play as big a part as the batter sides with incredible amounts of low end tone, punch and presence enhancing properties. These are recommended to be used in conjunction with EQ and EMAD batter heads delivering the complete experience.
The EQ series has progressed with the times, now available in a Calftone choice.
Calftone is made using a 12mil Mylar base blended with unique materials to produce warm, full, and rich tones. As an EQ4, a fixed internal overtone control ring helps focus the tonal response of the drum. Can be be used as both a batter and resonant head.
Sounds exactly like natural calfskin.
Can be used as both a batter and resonant head.
Available in separate sizes: 16, 18, 20, 22, 24 & 26
