Default Re: Anyone ever try calf heads on a modern drum

ive tried kangaroo skin head (made by this fellow: https://www.facebook.com/kentvilledrums) on an evetts 14x6.5 tasmanian blackwood snare.... it has such an amazing tuning range! the head itself when its not a drum sounded a little dead, but as soon as theres a bit of tension it sings at pretty much any tuning, low, medium or high - i never pushed it to stupidly high though (somewhere were you'd probably tune a piccolo is what im talking), i was afraid the skin might not be able to take the tension, and especially since it wasn't MY drum head or even drum i didnt want to risk breaking anything
