Thinking of replacing batter head on my Yamaha MCAN 12" tom with an Evans '56 Calfskin. As background re this kit, on my other toms (smaller rack and FT) I 've been using Remo Vintage Emperors, coated and clear respectively, and they're great. I've learned since purchasing this kit new in 2010, that my 8" x 12" has a tendency to get choked with a 2-ply, so have gone with 1-ply, which currently is an Evans G1 coated. It'll soon need replacing. Anyone ever try '56s as tom batters? If so I'd like to hear your reviews. Have one on one of my snares (Pearl Masters Maple) and love it.
