Head Comparison - Fiberskyn, Calftone 56 and Litik Hide Heads
Dave Bateman took three different heads - the new Evans Calftone 56, the Remo Fiberskyn 3 and a Litik real hide head - put them on the same drum, tuned them to the same tension and recorded the results for a comparison.
This isn't so much a review, more a chance for you to hear and compare the best selling artificial hide copy (Remo), the new kid on the block (Evans) and the real thing (Litik).
The drum had a single ply mahogany shell with rounded bearing edges and die cast hoops.
All were tuned with a Drum Dial set to 80 for the top head and about 78 for the bottom head. Apart from a small eq reduction at about 500hz, there was nothing done to the sound.
