Comments about Evans EQ2 Batter Clear Bass Drumhead:
Used EQ3 and EQ4 and EMADs prior to this EQ2. It was an experiment to buy these and I'm happy. I have a 20" kick drum. This head, along with the factory solid Pearl reso, give my kick drum a good solid, controlled but 'open' sound. Obviously the head alone won't stop all the overtones or ringing, but this head does a great job in controlling the sound and maintaining a good solid tone. I don't have any dampening in my kick drum. The sound I wanted was a controlled, open sound. I didn't want to muffle my drum but didn't want it to ring on and on. This head satisfies my desired sound. I get a good tone, good control, and it's not choked or muffled. This drum head has control rings AND dry air vents. Given the sound I want, and the sound this drum head provides, I say the control rings and dry vents work. Evans makes quality drum heads - you won't go wrong with any choice. Make sure you research the sound you want and select an appropriate drum head. The EMAD drum head I used was a good head except the external mounting ring broke during normal use after a few weeks. Thus, while I got a good sound, it didn't last long. The EQ3 head was similar to this head except both head plies are 6.5mm (vs. 10 and 6.5mm for the EQ2) and no dry vents. The EQ4 is a single ply drum head.
