Black Chrome

Designed and produced in the USA, Evans Black Chrome drumheads are engineered to deliver the optimal combination of deep tone, focused sustain and extreme durability you need for hard-hitting progressive and metal drumming.


Evans' engineering and design teams were focused on discovering the perfect combination of materials for Black Chrome. They experimented with unique film pairings, custom adhesives, and out-of-the-box design concepts to produce a drumhead of superior tone and durability. What they found was that pairing a 7mil clear top over a 7.5mil black bottom, the sleek and unique 2-ply design adds plenty of body and deep tone to support the natural high-frequency attack of high-impact drumming. This also results in a black-mirror finish, lending some serious attitude to your music. 

A few artists now using Black Chrome include Tomas Haake of Meshuggah, Jordan Mancino of As I Lay Dying, and Joe Rickard of Red.
