Evans Drumheads: EC2 Tom Heads


collapse expand iconDescription

The Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead 8" delivers balanced attack and sustain with ease of tuning. Evans' Sound Shaping Technology provides pre-EQ'd tone for drums of all sizes. Two plies of 7mil film and an Edge Control ring work together to dampen overtones and enhance low-end punch. The EC2 SST series lets drummers shape a broad tonal palette.

Sound Shaping Technology Optimizes Tone

Evans' patented SST tailors the EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead 8" to the dimensions of any drum. Varying the density of the built-in damping ring produces full, resonant tone for each size. Unlike heads lacking SST, the EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead 8" provides balanced attack, sustain and tuning regardless of drum dimensions.

Two-Ply Design Delivers Controlled Resonance

Two plies of 7mil film give the EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead 8" durability and controlled vibration. The film dampens excess overtones while allowing fundamental tone to ring through. Attached to the underside, an Edge Control ring further refines the drumhead's voice by absorbing frequencies that could muddy the overall sound. The result is a drumhead with a broad tuning range and a clear, focused tone.

Versatile and Road-Ready

With optimized attack, sustain and tuning, the EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead 8" suits any musical style or venue. Its two-ply, 7mil film construction also makes it rugged enough for touring drummers. An ideal choice for drummers seeking resonant tone and versatile tuning in a durable drumhead.
