Overview

The Evans EC2 Clear Batter Drumhead is a 2-ply tom head with an Edge Control ring that isolates and dampens higher overtones, enhances low-end and attack, and enables broader tuning and dynamic ranges. Unlike conventionally damped heads, the EC2 will not choke at higher tuning ranges, or lose its full-bodied presence when tuned low.

I bought EC2 heads because I wanted a focused and very define sound out of my toms without choking them, and they did just that and more! I was amazed at the tuning range that could be achieved with these heads. The dampener ring underneath the 2 plies controls head vibration which creates that dampened sound without making it dead. My highest tom tom doesn't have those annoying overtones anymore and it makes my 14 inch tom sound fat. The head brought the warm tone out of my maple drums and they delivered an increased attack with every strike. It's perfect for the styles of music I play. I haven't even made any dents in it yet, so it must be very durable. It's got a lot of features and quality for a good price. Go Evans!!

drumming for 30 years. Installed the EC2's on my maple shelled kit today.These heads sound awesome on the SMALLER diameter shells(8",10",12")especially the 8 and 10. NOT SO MUCH on the larger diameter shells (13" 14" and 16"). The Remo Pinstripe comparable heads sound much better on these larger shells. I found that these heads CRY OUT FOR YOU TO USE use a thinner resonant (bottom head) such as the Remo Diplimat and not the medium weight heads like you more likely are use to. I ALSO FOUND that these heads sound better when tuned at "HIGHER" tuninings than "LOWER" tunings. THESE HEADS ARE IDEAL FOR BIRCH SHELLS IN MY OPINION. I am not sure at this point if I will buy EC2's again.

Nice tone.

By Nicholas Shelton

from Gulf Coast, AL

I ordered these heads for a Pearl stencil set, 70's Japan. I fixed them up and cleaned them, first heads. I love them, they have that open tone, when tuned in at least a musical interval with the resonant head or in with each other (mine). They require minimal moon gel for unwanted tone or sustain; like half of one piece on the batter for 12/13;" half on top half on bottom for 16." Tuned to A, G, C respectively. The dampening ring off of the bearing edge is excellent, keeps tom sustain, no choke sound.

Great head for the money

By kevin winston

from orland park, illinois

i got these heads about a wek ago and they sound really good! i got the 12" 13" 16" and 18" and put them on my Rogers Usa Holiday edition. they have a bright tone and dont give off much of those nasty overtones. comparing them to the original heads( which were the Rogers Brand name heads from 1960's) is an amazing difference. i never noticed how much ring i had in the old ones until i got these.they resonate for the perfect amount of time. not too short like a bass drum, but not too long. i think its a great head and its great for the money, and id reccomend it to anyone weather they barely play or they play every day.

not so good on larger diameter shells

By Michael Fenton

from Mobile, Alabama

I decided to switch to evans heads after 30 years of drumming. I bought this heads for a Mapex Saturn Pro maple kit. The EC2 heads sound absolutely awesome on the smaller diameter shells. NOT so good in my opinion on diameters of 14" or larger. I put them on 8,10,12,13,&14". I found that YOU HAVE TO TUNE THEM A LITLLE HIGHER THAN YOU ARE PROBABLY USED TO for them to sound thier best.I have Ambassador wieght head on the bottom of the toms. it sounds like EC2's cry out to be used with thinner resonant(bottom) heads.

Great Head(s)!

By Chris

from Brunswick, Ohio

These heads are fantastic! They sound great on my Pearl Masters set. The 2 plies gives the durability I want, and the sound control ring does a great job at controlling over tones without choking/dampening the sound (or the natural tone of the drum). While these heads are a little bit pricier than others, I would highly recommend trying them. I have tried other heads, but always come back to these or the Evans G2 Coated. I recently put then on my kit and then recorded in a studio. The sound of the raw tracks (no EQ) was absolutely amazing! I also used them live the following evening. They were just as good live, too!

Awesome Heads!

By Todd

from Austin, Tx

I just got these heads and they are amazing. I got these to replace the stock heads that came on my new drum set and you could tell right away what a difference these heads make. I was looking for a lower end sound for my toms and these heads deliver. Excellent quality heads, buy these! You will not regret it!

These heads are worth it!

By IDrum4Fun

from Lynnwood, WA

I have been an active drummer for about 10 years now. I can tell you that these are the drum heads that I have grown to love. I like a muffled sound in my toms and these heads give you just that. They dampen those annoying overtones while keeping that rich acoustic sound everyone is looking for. A must for those who are looking for a good tone in there drums.

Great sound. Very full, deep and rich. It goes great with jazz and some styles of rock, from my experience. Overall, a very solid drumhead. 5's across the board.

By KB-BLAST!

I've been addicted to Evans for 3 possibly 4 years...and I've never thought of any other brands....Just like you imagine the sound in your head you hear it on these heads.....and yes even on the lowest quality kits
