Durability ranges from Average to Extended depending on ply count, thickness, or added dot patches.
I’m interested in the Evans Hydraulic series for my kit. Is there any significance between colors?
Yes there is. Ply thickness is defined by color:
Black 6.5mil + 7mil
Red & Blue 7mil + 7mil
Glass 6.5mil + 6.5mil
A thicker ply provides you with more durability, volume/body, decreased sensitivity, and increased attack. A thinner ply provides you with with less durability, volume, and attack, but an increase in sensitivity.
For many, drumhead tuning can be a frustrating, time-consuming experience. Thankfully, the Evans Hydraulic series heads take much of the guesswork out of the dark art of tuning, all while giving you the fattest and roundest sounding tone. For those who would rather spend their time playing, the ease of tuning provided by Hydraulic heads’ unique oil injected two-ply construction allows them to do just that.
Level 360 Technology extends the level playing surface of the drumhead 360 degrees around the drum. The vertically enhanced collar design guarantees even contact with the edge of the drum shell, creating a perfectly level fit.
