I first played double bass drums in 1989, been playing off and on since then. Just started playing again after 3 year nap from drums/bands/jamming. This drumhead sounded great when functional. In 6 days time I had a crack/tear in drumhead just right of center from top to bottom. I HAVE NEVER PUNCHED THRU OR DAMAGED A BASS DRUM HEAD EVER. So, with no money, not even for gas to get to guitar center where I purchased head, what to do? The only thing sensible, put on the old beaten down original premier drums head and continue rocking til I can afford to go back to guitar center and spend more money for a bass drum head that hopefully lasts a little longer. I would say that this at head at about 44 dollars plus tax is not for me. Must have developed some power in my legs since laying about for the last three years, dang it all to gosh darn heck. (You know what I really wanted to say there) I also bought heads for 10,12,14 inch toms and reverse dot head for snare, no issues with them, probably gonna need bigger sticks to punch thru them. Ha, I make joke. Evans, no more my marine corps va pension money for you... Geeze, just tried to submit review but can not, (being forced to give at least one star rating, yet I DO NOT GIVE THIS A ONE STAR RATING ALTHOUGH I HAVE TO DO SO TO SUBMIT REVIEW), cool cheese guitar center.

EXELLENCE!!!

By Drumualy Active

from Boone, NC

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

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!

The head that counts

By TheTOOLguy

from glen burnie, MD

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

This drum head has been great to me for the past four years of my drumming career. I've used Evans and Evans only when it comes to heads. This EMAD 2 has the biggest punch and leaves enough room for great resonance so no drummer has to stuff a blanket in the drum. With amazing punch; durable build and amazing audible flexability, this head takes your feet to a whole new level. Whether you're just keeping a beat at the local club; or your tearing it up with both feet going as fast as possible; the Evans EMAD 2 bass head is guarenteed to leave you satisfied.

Worth the few extra bucks

By JW_Cleve

from Cleveland OH

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

Had em for 2 years now. They're the best I've ever owned! They sound great! Nice deep low end, great feel and attack, and very durable. The foam rings are easy to install and get rid of unwanted ring and overtone without changing the overall feel and attack of the head. A little pricey, but well worth the few extra bucks

Honestly..

By RoscoeGordo

from -------------

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

I think I've found the drum head I'll be buying for my bass from now on..this thing is great! I've had it for a wihle now, and it has a small dent, but only because of the extremely hard plastic beaters and the amount i use it..and you don't need a dampener either, no pillows or blankets, which is great. One of the best heads our there.

The Best!

By BButler2

from Mesquite, Tx

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

This is by far the best bass drum head I've ever used. It's great for all styles but I play hardcore/hard rock and it holds up wonderfully to my hard hitting. This baby sounds like it is mic'd up all the time, and my drums are in a tiny room with blankets on the walls! I played a 3 hour show with this and it held up beautifully and I got TONS of drummers after the show asking me what bass drum head I was using. This will be the last drum head I ever use! It's simply unbelievable, you just have to buy it for yourself to see! You won't be dissapointed!

EMAD 2 Bass Head

By Pacificdrummer89

from Portland OR

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

This is probably the best drum head out there in my opinion. When My Remo Powerstroke broke, I looked for a head that would give me quality, duability, and a awesome sound. When i put this on my bass drum, I was just blown away with the sound and you can change the sounds with the rings that come with it. I love this head and im sure that you will too.

EMAD2 - I'M SO GLAD TOO

By Tony

from Plano, Il.

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

This is one of the best investments to add a quality deep thumping punch to your bass drum. The foam insert rings really help it alot and you have a couple choices in thicknesses for inserts. The 2ply head gives it the extra strength and durability too. You'll be so glad too. Your bass drum will sound good even without a reso with this one.

Very Disappointed in Durability

By Greg Mitchell

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

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.

      Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

      I have a pretty small bass. And with normal bass heads I would get a lighter sound because of it. But with this it makes it sound like the lowest Bass drum i've heard.

      By gretsch491

      Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

      If you are looking for a new kick drum head definately check an emad2 out. I have always liked the normal emad but i still had to put a small towel or pillow in the kick to make it sound how i like it. Now with the EMAD2 you need absolutely no more dampening and you will get the perfect amount of punch. I dont think ive ever head a kick drum sound as good. I promise you wont regret trying this head out and it will last you a very long time.

      blown away

      By Chris Scheer

      from Reston, VA

      Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

      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.

      Fat bottom end, no anoying overtones!!!

      By Anthony Holcomb

      from Portland Indiana

      Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

      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!!!

        Well Worth every Penny, Pillows take too much punch out of Bass Drums. My Kick Drum now Truly has more punch and attack with a great sense of presence... The External foam rings can be easily changed
        according to your taste.. Thank You Evans!!!

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        this has to be the best bass drum head i have ever used it dampened, my otherwise bright and ringy bassdrum, to the point where i was debating wether or not i should still put a blanket in. (although i still ended up doing so because it was still too ringy for my style of music) i recommend this head to anyone looking for a new head

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        This bass drum head, the emad 2 can turn any kit around. It can take a low end bass drum and add as well as discover the full potential of the bass drum. It does wonders on my tama swingstar, and pearl export. This product is i believe to be essential to all drummers, for not only power and attack but as well as accenting the rest of your kit. Theres only one essential tool to playing drums, drum sticks. Well i just found #2.

        For years I've used the EQ4 Batter with an Evans resonant and 2 of the Evans pillow deals. I decided to switch to the EMAD package. WOW!!! My bass drum has never sounded better. I have a Pearl Masters kit with 4Ply Maple. My bass drum sounds like a subwoofer kickin now. Incredible round bass tone with good attack. GET THIS HEAD SET NOW!

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        I've just recently delved into the fun world of recording drums in my home studio. As a guitarist, I must say that the journey has been an interesting one. To the point, I've learned that heads and tuning are everything to a drum track. Mics are secondary. This head blew me away and I cannot wait until the next session with my drummer. Big, controlled sound right out of the box. Makes me wanna get the reso head for the front.

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        Best head on the market if you want or like a lower end, fat sound with attack and punch. Whether you play with an 18" kick or a 28" kick this head will give a lot of tuning options. I play with a heavy foot and like my kick mixed loud into the overall live and studio mix.
