Evans Drumheads: EMAD Bass Heads


collapse expand iconDescription

The Evans EMAD Heavyweight Clear Batter Bass Drum Head 18" is double-ply, built to withstand the hardest-hitting players. Featuring two 10-mil plies for unparalleled strength, the EMAD Heavyweight provides a compressed yet wide-open tone with serious oomph. Evans' renowned Level 360 collar allows for easy tuning and seating, ensuring studio-ready sound in an instant.

Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping for Total Control

The EMAD Heavyweight includes Evans' patented Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping system with two interchangeable damping rings that enable drummers to adjust attack and focus without removing the head or reaching inside the drum. The thinner ring maximizes resonance and punch, while the wider ring boosts low end and shortens sustain for maximum power. Either way, drummers get iconic EMAD tone with the flexibility to shape it to their exact needs.

Punch and Power Without Compromise

Two plies of Evans' premium 10-mil film provide the EMAD Heavyweight with an ideal balance of punch, depth and durability for players who demand volume and power. The double-ply construction withstands even the hardest hits while producing a fat, compressed tone that cuts through loud stage volumes and dense mixes. For drummers seeking maximum volume and projection, the EMAD Heavyweight delivers like no other.

Level 360 Seating for Quick, Perfect Tuning

Evans' revolutionary Level 360 technology makes the heavyweight EMAD incredibly easy to tune and provides a wider tonal range than ever before. The Level 360 collar allows the head to seat properly, enabling fast, accurate tuning for a punchy, studio-ready sound right out of the box. Once tuned, the Level 360 collar helps the head hold its shape through hours of heavy playing. For demanding players, the combination of maximum durability and tuning ease makes the EMAD Heavyweight an ideal choice.
