Evans glass (clear) Hydraulic two-ply drum head features a thin film of oil between the plies that suppresses unwanted overtones. A classic sound, short in sustain. Tension it tight for a real thump or loose for a more slappy sound.

Evans Hydraulic series features two plies of thin film offering maximum durability, a fat, deep and short sound pioneered by early 70's rock and roll. Hydraulics are famously easy to tune...making them a perfect fix for troublesome drums and younger players looking for instant sound.

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.

Comments about Evans Hydraulic Glass Drum Head, Clear:

My goal has always been to tune my set without having to do any kind of muffling on the heads to get the tone I want. I didn't want to mess with rings, gels, or internal muffling. I heard the theory behind hydraulic heads and decided to try them out, and they gave exactly the tone I wanted. I use these as batter with a single ply resonant head and it gives the perfect blend of dampening overtones and leaving the sustain of the drum.

I used the black hydraulics on my old set, but I just got an acrylic set so I wanted to stick with clear to keep the transparent look. Really killer tone, great look, and I have yet to break one in the 8 years since I switched to hydraulic heads.
