The Evans 22" EQ3 Resonant Black bass drumhead, featuring an internal overtone control ring that delivers a warm, punchy bass drum sound with a short, controlled decay ideal for both live performance and recording. This innovative 10-mil, single-ply Evans drumhead provides unparalleled tone-shaping capabilities for your bass drum. The offset 5" hole streamlines microphone placement while the plastic sleeve protects the port and focuses pitch.

Overtone Control Ring Tames Unwanted Overtones

The Evans EQ3 Resonant Black bass drumhead incorporates an internal overtone control ring that effectively eliminates unwanted overtones, producing a focused bass drum sound with a controlled decay. This allows you to achieve a balanced, professional bass drum tone that sits perfectly in your overall drum mix.

10-mil Film Provides Ideal Thickness

At 10-mil thick, the single-ply film construction of the Evans EQ3 Resonant Black bass drumhead provides an ideal thickness for controlling bass drum resonance without sacrificing punch or low-end. The result is a bass drum tone with a balanced attack, body and decay that translates equally well on recordings and on stage.

Offset 5" Hole Simplifies Microphone Placement

The Evans EQ3 Resonant Black bass drumhead features an offset 5" hole that provides convenient access for microphone placement while maintaining the structural integrity of the drumhead. The offset position helps capture the balanced, toneful sound of your bass drum while keeping the microphone out of the way during performance.
