OVERVIEW

Hear your drum's true pitch, control overtones, and tune easily.

Evans E-Rings are an easy way to control overtones from your drumhead. Overlay them on top of the drum and they flatten and round out the drum's sound making it easier to tune. Save time in the studio and get killer snare sound. A great value too, because they're reusable.

The E-Rings are available in two configurations. The fusion pack consists of 10", 12" and two 14" rings, while the standard pack offers 12", 13", 14" and 16" rings.


Pure tone and value. Let your true sound come through.

Evans E-Rings do precisely what they claim; to rid your drums whether it be a snare or tom, of unwanted sustain and overtones. I have a Mapex Pro-M Maple Studio double bass kit that sounds awsome, but the sustain and overtone is too much. Yes I've tried various tuning, and have bought and tried many different ressonant and batter heads claiming to cure the problem...trust me, don't waiste any money! Heres what to do! Stay with your loyal brand of heads, Buy some E-Rings, and tune your heads this way, if you want your kit to sound totally awsome!! Step#1. Tune each drum to its "sweetspot". This is where you'll hear the fullest tonal pitch and sustain. Generally both top and bottom heads will be at the same tension. I use a Drum-Dial for this, and usually wind up at around 75. When you have all your toms sounding their fullest and in good pitch with each other, go to step 2.Step#2. Drop an E-Ring on each drum, play each drum to focus on the characteristic of the sound. You'll notice a true deadning effect and also a big drop in tonal quallity...don't freak out!, this is where everyone goes wrong. This next step is a secret I'm about to bless all of you with, and I've got around 50 hrs perfecting it! Ok, the final step.Step#3.This step will separate the men from the boys! Now that all the E-Rings are in place, and your almost happy, start increasing the tension on the lug screws on the batter head only, about a 1/16th of a turn, and do so in a tuning sequence. Lightly tap the head with a stick and listen for the nice tonal quallity to come back. Keep tightening ever so gently until you hear your drum sound like a $10,000 drum that is miked and gated through a studio mixer!!! When using any kind of drum head muting device, remember this... anything touching a drumhead changes the harmonic frequency within the head itself, so you have to compensate by changing the tension to bring back the frequency desired, but at a muted level. The bottom line is this...YES, you DO have to tune your drums with the E-Rings on, but in proper sequence! Enjoy your E-Rings, Quallity Sound, and my secret.

I got these when I replaced my stock heads. They make your drums sound great......if you're just practicing on your own. If you plan to record your drums, I would take them off. They make your drums sound too dead when you record them.If you have bad overtones or whatever, you should just use a little tape. But again, if you are just practicing, they are great.

    E Rings eliminate drum ringing!

    Comments about E-Rings Pack:

    I have a rather low end, although well built 5 -drum kit. I bought it used and am still using the inexpensive heads that came with this kit. Added the Evans E-rings and it took all the unwanted overtones out of each drum. These now sound like new drums with new drum heads. Super product and a very inexpensive solution to an irritating problem. Good invention and product Evans!

    Rings rock...made 100% improvement in the sound of my kit...

    Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

    These rings arrived via UPS just when expected. They have made a tremendous difference in the sound of my rather low end-kit with the heads that came on the drums. They fit exactly right and all of the high end shrill "ring" is gone! And without losing any of the tone of each drum. I have them on my snare, two shell toms and my floor tom I took them right out of the bag and put them on. Not trimming or any other adjustment necessary. Within minutes my drums sounded like a completely different set. I am more than pleased. Thank you Musician's Friend...Ed< ><

      Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

      These e-rings are great for practicing as they kill any excessive overtones or sustain coming from the drums. Like others have mentioned, take these off if you're playing live so you can allow your drums to put out more sustain. But for at-home use, these are awesome, easy to use, and make the drums sound great.

      I needed something to reduce overtones and sustain but still wanted some of the natural tone. E-Rings did the trick. So easy to use. I re-tuned my drums and applied the E-Rings and was ready to rock!

          Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

          I am a lifelong percussionist. I like a nice fat sound without all the overtones. I tried moon gels but they're so messy and sticky to work with. For the money, although they're inexpensive, gels don't last very long. They tear easily. But Evans is the brand of heads I use, so I decided to try the E-Rings. They do not disappoint. They're durable and they make my kit sound great. Considering I've had the same heads for 12 years I know I can count on these to last a long time.

            I'm mainly a keyboardist and I'm also the recording engineer for my band. I've been recording bands for almost 20 years, and a good drum recording I feel starts with a tight sound. We all know about pillows and blankets in kick drums. If you come across a drummer that is inexperienced at tuning, these will help reduce the ringing overtones on the toms. They don't replace proper tuning, but they do help, and on a well tuned kit, the sound is tight and punchy.

              I have been playing drums for 21 years and I am very particular about the sound of my drums. My current setup for the past few years has been a Gretsch Renown Maple. These rings, although simple in concept, drastically improve the sound of my drums. They make my desired tom sound easily-attainable. I know some people simply lay them down and never think about it again, but my approach is a bit different. I apply one, then seat them using one small MoonGel. This combination gives me the exact sound I am looking for. My tom sound if "fattened" quite a bit, they have excellent attack, but any unwanted overtones and/or "ring" are eliminated. Overall, an incredibly simple and cost-effective way to enhance your drum sound. Highly-recommended.
