OVERVIEW

The Evans EC2 Clear Drumhead delivers low-end punch while keeping a lid on overtones!

The Evans EC2 Clear Batter Drumhead is a 2-ply tom head with an Edge Control ring that isolates and dampens higher overtones, enhances low-end and attack, and enables broader tuning and dynamic ranges. Unlike conventionally damped heads, the EC2 will not choke at higher tuning ranges, or lose its full-bodied presence when tuned low.

FEATURES
  • 2-ply tom head
  • Edge Control ring dampens overtones

I tried these new EC2 heads at the EVANS booth during the 2006 NAMM Show. I have used EVANS Hydraulics in the past. But I did not want that particular "dead" sound on my kit. When I tried the new EC2 heads on their kit, I was amazed at the "FAT" full bodied sound they projected without any extra tape or moongel. I ordered a set of these heads for my large studio kit. They sound fantastic on the high end 8" tom and equally wonderful on the 18" floor tom (and all toms in between). I use single ply bottom heads tuned slightly lower than the top. If you want a fat round sound that is full...these are the heads for you. If you like that annoying "boing-boing" ringing overtone...then buy something else. There is still a lot of action in the rebound of the stick and I have not put any dents into the heads after 4 months of daily use. I play fairly hard, and usually would have a bunch of surface dents by now. The two-ply does not have oil in between, and the ring control is adhered to the underside, not in between the plys. They stay in tune fairly well. I have NOT tried these heads on my snare. If you are not sure....buy one head...try it out...then make your own decision.

I have owned these heads for quite some time. At first, say for the first few months, they are decent. The sound I wanted was a low and somewhat muffled one, which is what the man at the music store told me I would get. They were a new type of head then so I thought , "What the heck, I'll try them." The low and slightly muffled sound was NOT what I got though. I had to tune hi and bright, which was not good for live and mic playing. After about a month, my floor tom cracked on the top head, and I don't tune very tight or play hard at all. I think I'm gonna go to the Vintage Emperor next, a tested and tried and true head, unlike the EC2 which still needs some bugs worked out of it.

Stoked on these!

By GY8aGQCdC

Comments about Evans EC2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

Just bought these heads last week for my 12" and 16" toms. I put them on the other night and there was a huge difference! Before I had evans g2 clear heads. They were good, but I couldn't get a clear deep lowend sound out of them. These new heads gives me that nice deep lowend sound I have been looking for. I have envans glass resonant heads on the toms as well. So far I am very pleased!

Comments about Evans EC2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

I have used these heads for 2-3 years. I recently tried Aqarian performance 2 heads. The ec2s have a great tone, tough construction and all around great drum head. They don't provide a low end thump like the performance 2 heads. I would definently recomend these heads. When my performance 2 heads wear out I will be buying them again.

Good on a basic set too!

By jaxdrummer

Comments about Evans EC2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

I've got them on a my Mapex set that is not a pro set, just your average $500 5 pc set up. I love these heads, makes it sound so much more professional than it used to. well worth the buy, I've had them for a while and they take pretty good abuse, but I don't hit like I used to when I thought that you ahd to hit hard to play good.Great for just about anyone. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone. I put a set of evans drum rings on to really bring out the tonal qualities as well, they sound as close to pro as you can get w/o pro money, thats what I am all about.

Best ive played

By ddrummer-Vfbwf

from rochester MI

Comments about Evans EC2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

these are the best tom heads around. They take out all overtones, while letting the toms true sound resonate. they have a punchier sound with a little bit less sustain if tuned low, and a less punchy sound with a little bit more sustain if tuned high. They sound great on my birch ddrum kit, im positive they'll sound good on your kit too.

Comments about Evans EC2 Clear Batter Drumhead:

I have been using these heads for 2 years and I Iam very happy with them.After 40+ years of playing I found a head I can tune and forget. Miked up they sound great. No dents very little wear and seems to stay in tune longer than most heads I've used.
