    FOUND THEM: Calf or Goat Heads

    I was expecting some goatskin earthiness, but that fell through. I am looking preferably for goat, but will take calf Earthtones or another pre-mounted brand:

    Ya don't see these for sale used too often. Get some new ones, use them for awhile and then PM me when you're done with em.

    Be careful - used 14" heads are often stretched out, since lots of them have been on snare drums. If they're tucked, not crimped, they can be retucked, eliminating the problem. Crimped heads, like Earthtone are one and done.

    I'll take a guess here and say one way to tell if your crimped Earthtone has expired would be to take it off the drum and look carefully to see if it still has even tention across the surface.

    Actually, Sinc, I have used and sold quite a few of their heads, but after experiencing some issues with some recent calf from them I have been trying to find their goat—though I’ll take either now!

    How can you see or tell if the tension on the head is uneven or stretched too far?

    I may have some new and near new Earthtone (goat, I think) and could possibly sell. Will take a look possibly this Sunday and let you know.
