This drumhead is beyond the rest. No matter what type of shell you drum is, with this head there is never a need to put anything inside the drum. The resonant head together with it makes the bassdrum sound like it's actually miked. The price is amazing for this pro-quality head!

Loved the sound, but have broken through the first ply twice now WAY too easy. The first one was without a pad attached so I bought another WITh a pad. Didn't make a difference - same results. I use felt beaters and consider myself an "average kicker". I play in a rock, pop, and dance cover band only 3-4 times a month so the head isn't getting heavy playing. Will be switching to another brand at this point. Don't want to punch through the second ply at a gig. Can't afford to pay $53 every month or so for a new bass head. That is ridiculous! For those buying this head ~ good luck.

        This head is absolutely unbelievable. Takes away a lot of resonance, which is what I like. But it still brings out the low tones in the drum. Comes with two foam rings, so there is a way to have more of the sound you prefer.

        The Perfect Head

        By 

        from Vicksburg, MI

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        I've never been disappointed with Evans drum heads and after buying this head I don't think I ever will be. This head is perfect for all music genres, I personally play classic rock, hard rock and metal and it sounds great. The head offers three dampening options, that is with or without the two dampening rings. It also includes the little single pedal patch that you put on your bass drum head and it helps to protect the head. It offers the perfect "boom" with just enough sustain that most drummers like, and it's also very durable for those who like to stomp on the pedals instead of tapping. I would highly recommend this drum head to anyone playing any type of music that likes that perfect "boom" from their bass drum.

        Best kick drum head!

        By 

        from Plainfield, CT

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        As a die hard Remo fan since I started playing drums back in elementary school, I probably would have never tried this head had I not bought an SJC kit with this head already on it. I had used nothing but clear powerstroke 3 kick heads, and I'm glad I stumbled across this gem. On my 8 ply maple kick, this head sounds like a dream. Punch and depth are apparent while still maintaining amazing attack and clarity. I'll never go back to another kick drum head. I've been using the same head for a year and a half now, and I don't see it busting anytime soon.

        Blown Away!!

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        My school was sponsored this year by Evans so i figured i'd give their heads a try on my kit, I bought the emad 2 and was simply full of shock... I couldn't believe how much better it sounds!!! I'm insanely happy with this head!! So far i think the durability is good, I'm a pretty hard hitter but i don't play metal. I say get a patch like me and your head should last a veryyyy long time. Worth EVERY cent!! Whats really cool is the 2 foam rings that come with it for extra control!! and easy access to change sound in a gig within seconds! Evans.. You ARE my NEW company... Veryyyyyyyyy Pleased!

        Fat bottom end, no anoying overtones!!!

        By 

        from Portland Indiana

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        This head is awesome!! I got it two days ago and what a difference it made right out of the box. I've played evans heads for a while now and I can say without a doubt that they got it down to a science. I put this head on my Tamma 22x18 imperial star with the smaller of the damp rings with the patch and the stock Tamma resonent head, and no other muffeling at all. It has that deep low tone that hits you right in the chest that I like with non of the ringing you get from other heads. No need to mike this thing for most venues or practice situations. I used an Evans 22 inc hydralic for years and liked the sound from it, but it still had what I call the clunky overtone no matter what I did or how I muffled it. This thing is very smooth, deep, and in your face!!! No clunck at all!!! And I use the heavy plastic type beaters and play pretty hard. When I do play softer stuff like jass or country the head is right there cutting through the mix and sounding awesome!!I would recommend this head for any style of music from jass to heavy rock and everything in between. Evans you did it again!!!

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        I bought this head yesterday. From the moment I put it on, I was amazed by the sound. This head added much more attack to my bass drum, and now it sounds amazing! This is by far the best bass drum head out there. I would definatly recomend this!

        from Reston, VA

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        I just bought this thing yesterday and all I can say is; WHOA! I?m in the process of bring my 80?s Ludwig Rocker set back to life. I?m still on the fence if I should continue the project or buy a new set. Anyway, I bought all new heads (Evans) yesterday for each drum. After doing lots of research I decided to give the EMAD 2 a look. The bass has no front hoop so no reso head. All I have for now is the batter side and no other dampening. Man this bass now sounds like one of those sound systems you hear in the kids cars. BOOM BOOM BOOM? I tried both dampening rings and like the sound of both. Anyway, the sound of this old drum is seriously amazing.
