  • LOVE IT.

    As reviewed by Jagged on 12/9/2010

    Been playing for years on almost exclusively Evans EQ3 kick drum batters and always liked the wet, deep thud I could get out of them, especially in the studio. Then two years ago, I purchased a 6 piece GMS kit with the EMAD installed and was quickly reminded how important SINGLE PLY drumheads are for a drummer, especially in terms of response. The Powerstroke and EQ4 always left something (for me) to be desired and now I think I know why. The Evans GMAD/EMAD utilize the external dampening ring as opposed to internal. What this does is control the attack of the beater as soon as it strikes the head. With the internal muffling, it's all inertia and intial force onto the head, then through the damening rings and then finally to the front head. Your inital strike is essentially going through a wall of insulation and as we know, this will deplete volume. The GMAD feels better too. Quick doubles and triples with my Trick Pro V are EFFORTLESS and the attack and boom are nothing I've heard from other single ply heads, even the EMAD (thinner at 10mil). I had been using the large Falams pad on my kicks and I eventually learned what many others have found actually "diminishes" the punch and attack. Thankfully, Remo is making them thinner now, with a plastic coating so the smaller dots and doubles now do as advertised. What really sets it apart is the can actually "hear" it when you strike the head. EQ3 and others, yeah I could, standing in front of the subs. I want to hear and feel it behind the kit and it delivers. No, you don't need extra internal muffling with this head but to erase that kickball on the concrete "ping" picked up by fine studio kick drum mics, it is best to lay SOMETHING inside your kick, just maybe not touching the front and back heads. It will absorb that high frequency. I'm right about this. Anyway, very impressive and that's coming from a Remo Ambassador guy all the way around the rest of his kits.

  • Great Bass Drum Sound

    As reviewed by Matt on 4/2/2015

    I visited a guitar center and asked if I could get a gmad head after doing some research online and wanting to try it. I had an emad years ago and now have a different kit which came with a power stroke 3. My local guitar center did not have it in stock, but they said they could order it and have it shipped to my home. It came and I noticed it has the new level 360 technology which was cool. I took the head and the included beater patch out and installed this baby. It took a little tuning to get it to sound just right (very loose resonant power stroke 3 with no sound hole) and just slight tension on this batter head. I used the smaller dampening ring and wow! This thing sounds great! Better than I expected. I would recommend this head. It has some sustain, very low bass note, and good attack. I believe the extra thickness over the original emad gives it better sound rather than that "knocking on a door" type sound. I'm more than happy.

  • Nice Punchy Sound

    As reviewed by Dave on 4/7/2011

    I have purchased a Gretsch Catalina Ash 6 piece set with cheap crappy heads but except the bass drum which was pre-installed with the Evans Gmad. Overall I love the sound of the this head it truly gives the thunderous punchy sound compared same to the Emad batter heads. The quality is good especially when it's a single ply heads that is alot thinner and most likely to get dents on it. But I am very impressed with the Gmad because although the head is a single ply it has the sound and feel of a double ply head and it's great for hard hitters like me it been over a year since I had this head on it's still going strong.
