EVANS (drum heads)

Larry was using EVANS 'Black Gold' hydraulic drum heads on his drums during the WAR through THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE period.
While even the earliest of his YAMAHA kits were meant to be double headed drums, LARRY did not play them as such. He had the bottom head cut, leaving about an inch of drum head attached and the centers missing, on the underside of his toms. This gave his drums the look of a double headed tom but the tone and feel of his TAMA "Fibre Star" single headed toms.
