Evans Drumheads: EMAD Bass Heads


collapse expand iconDescription

The Evans EMAD Clear Batter bass drumhead provides drummers the power to shape their ideal bass drum sound. This innovative 10-mil, single-ply drumhead utilizes an externally mounted adjustable damping system with two interchangeable damping rings that allow drummers to adjust attack and focus to best complement their playing style and music.

Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping Provides Custom Sound

The EMAD in this drumhead's name stands for "Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping. This patented system gives drummers unmatched control over their bass drum's sound and response. The two included damping rings—one thinner for punch and one thicker for low end—can be used together or individually to dampen overtones and shape the drumhead's sound. This enables quick and easy tuning adjustments without removing the drumhead, a feature invaluable for studio recording sessions.

Level 360 Technology Improves Tone and Tuning

Evans' revolutionary Level 360 technology is built into this EMAD drumhead, improving both tone and ease of tuning. The Level 360 collar allows the drumhead to seat properly, resulting in a wide tonal range and a head that tunes up fast. This technology, combined with the EMAD system's damping rings, provides a studio-ready, professional level bass drum sound with a single drumhead.

Options for Every Sound and Style

The EMAD series offers drumheads to match any musical style or sonic preference. Options include single-ply heads in 10 to 12 mils and two-ply heads for heavier playing. Both coated and clear versions are available, as well as special Onyx editions. Sizes range from 18" to 24" to fit any bass drum. The Evans EMAD Clear Batter bass drumhead delivers power, control and customization for drummers wanting to shape a signature bass drum sound.
