The Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead offers an edge control ring mounted under 2 plies of 7-mil film. The EC2S coated drumheads control vibration instead of eliminating it. It also dampens higher overtones, enhances low-end attack, and supports a broader tuning range.

Evans EC2 Sound Shaping Technology (SST)
Evans improved EC2S drumheads contain Evans' exclusive Sound Shaping Technology (SST). Sound Shaping Technology allows the drumheads to be fully optimized for each individual size by varying the thickness and density of the damping material, ensuring greatly improved performance and tone across the entire kit. Unlike other heads that lack SST, Evans EC2Ss contain the ability to balance attack and tone for each size. The result is a drumhead series fine-tuned for attack, tone, length of sustain, and ease of tuning. Packed with a more balanced and pre-EQ'd sound across the full kit, the vans EC2S with SST will make your toms sound better than you ever thought possible.

Here is what the pros are saying:
"So I just gave the new EC2s a test run overseas. They sound great!! I used them on a Mapex Orion kit. The new muffling rings are nice! After pounding these for a few shows they stayed focused."
-Chris Pennie

"The new EC2s are so incredible! The attack and tone has somehow been magnified, when I'm playing these heads the feel, definition and tone that I'm able to draw out of them is amazing and is so sweet to the ear."
-Camille Grainer

"The new Evans EC2 SSTs are amazing. My toms sound so warm and lush. These drum heads bring out the true sound of the drums."
-Dean Butterworth

"The best just got better - the new EC2 SST drumheads are incredible!"
-Preston Heyman - The Wolfmen and U.K. Session Supremo

For years I've been around trying different heads looking to find "my" sound. I've been a REMO guy from most of my life but I finally decided to give EVANS a try. I seriously got to say that I made one switch and I'm never going back! I got these SST's about a week ago and I finally got that deep, resonant, warm, and quick sound I've always been looking for! They are very easy to tune and I could immediately tell the difference from the Pinstripes I had on my set. No need for any muffling or anything the muffling ring on the head suprisingly works great. For me, best heads so far... :)

I've had these heads on my DW Collector's kit for about 6 months now. I find that while they don't sound terrible, they tend to choke alot of the sustain of the drums. To a point where they sound almost dead. I prefer to tune low, so maybe these heads work better at higher tunings but they just don't do it for me personally. Also, the dampening material starts to flake off inside the drum after some time, leaving little black flakes all over the inside of the shell. Doing a head change tomorrow and while the may not effect the drum in an audible way, those loose flakes still bug me and will have to be cleaned out of the shell. Eh, they are still a decent alternative to pinstripes, but not for me.

Evans really hit it on the money

By 

from Vacaville, CA

Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

I have a Tama Starclassic B/B kit and I just changed the heads on my toms (12" rack, 14" & 16" floor)from clear Remo Pinstripes to these. I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of these heads. Aesthetically, the heads look fantastic. They are relatively easy to tune, they produce very warm, clear, articulate sounds and have a great feel on the hands which for me is soft but with good rebound. The coated version of these heads noticeably cut down on overtones and although I was expecting there to be less projection from my toms than I got from the clear pinstripes I had, I was pleasantly surprised to find that projection was not noticeably affected. The first day of playing with them in a live setting I got glowing compliments from my sound engineer on how the kit sounded. In short, BUY THESE HEADS and you won't regret it.

ec2 coated

By 

from Leverett Ma.

Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

Just recieved some coated ec2's by (my) mistake, but to my suprise, they sounded great. I always use clear heads on my live kit and didn't think they would sound the way I wanted, but if anything, they seemed a little brighter than the clear set I have in my studio. I also swapped out the remo resonant heads for some evans at the same time and that also made a huge differance for the better.

Evans for Life!!!

By 

from Redlands CA

Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

These EC2 SST Coated heads are sick. I cant believe I overlooked Evans for Remo Pinstripes all these years. I got a snare head 4 months ago. This head made this the best sounding snare I've ever had. And the head still looks brand new, Stays in tune too. This is the perfect tone for me. Ive been looking for this for years. Warm tone with a quick attack. Plus it looks cool. Gonna try some tom heads real soon.

One of my favorites

By 

from Durham, NC

Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

These are my "go to" heads for great sounding toms right out of the box. Punchy, but not obnoxious. Knowing how to tune your toms is still the most important, factor, but these make it easy. They work well under live sound mics, too. Just the right amount of overtones. I used them on a contemporary Gretsch USA maple kit (10,12,14) and a mid-1960's Ludwig kit (12,13,14) and they both sounded great.

!

By 

from NC

Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

These drum heads are amazing, they are durable, and they bring out the true tone of the drum, while still giving it a punchy attack. I had the EC2 clears, but I didn't like the sound so I thought I would try a coated head for a slightly muted sound. The SST rings are what muffles it to bring out the tone. Besides all of the sound, they look amazing, and don't dent, or get marks on them even from my black snare head. Definitely 5 stars out of me!

Excellent Sound

By 

from New York

Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

My band-mates bought me a full set of the EC2 SST Coated heads for my birthday. They sound amazing and they are very durable. Surprisingly they don't scuff too easily either. They still look relatively new since I got them 3 months ago. I would definitely recommend these.
