OVERVIEW

Targeted tone enhancement rather than haphazard muffling.

Evans broke new ground by developing the EC2 batter head that removes unwanted drum overtones, focuses pitch, and enhances attack without inhibiting dynamic range as other damped heads do. The EC2 features an "Edge-Control" ring mounted underneath two plies of 7mil film. By controlling, instead of eliminating, edge vibration, the ring isolates and damps higher overtones, enhancing low-end and attack, and enabling a broader tuning range.

The EC2 coated tom head has a fine, translucent frosted coating. The result is a warm tone and additional focus.

Right off the bat: The Evans EC2 coated drumheads are AMAZING! I tried to find all the info I could on these heads, after all, who wants to spend money on something that isn't right for them? I needn't have worried! These heads are AMAZING for warm loud projecting tone! I went for the coated ones because they are a bit warmer than the clear ones, and I am VERY HAPPY with these heads. So is my band! They couldn't get over how warm and fat these heads make my drums sound. (My guitar player said it best when he said my toms sound "monstrous" now! Another nice thing is that these heads tune up VERY easily! I play a Tama Granstar double bass kit with deep shell toms (13", 14", 16") and these heads have given me the sound I've wanted from my toms all my life. I play heavy rock, and I highly recommend them. I've been playing 35 years now, and I really don't think there is a better head out there for warmth, power, and projection. Hats off to Evans for making such a stellar line of drumheads!

Durable is the word to use here.

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

I've been playing drums for quite some time and ive gone through a lot of different types of heads. These heads are the ones I have found the most success with so far. I used evans 0-rings on each tom with these heads however. I didnt like the sound without the rings. These heads tend to echo if you dont add something else to them. These heads, once I got them all hooked up with the rings, lasted forever! Plastic tips leave a little bit of a mark after a lot of use but they last forever. They dont seem to change their tones once you get them the way you want them.

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

This is by far the best snare drum head that I have ever owned. It adds a ton of warm crack to any snare. The durability is outstanding. This head is a little pricey, but they kick butt. I own a metal Tama snare and it sounds like Joey Jordison's snare on 9.0 Live with this head.

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

These are some good heads that are wirth the few extra bucks. They make my cheap drums sound pretty nice. I used to have studio rings on my stock heads but i thought they were too much, these still let the drums ring just enough with no mad overtones. real nice and focused and warm. I say try them.

Evans EC2 Coated

By BaselineDriveRocks

from Garrett, IN

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

These heads are outstanding. It took me quite a while to find the right heads for my style. I have an Pearl EXR Fusion set and I first put on Evans g2 coated heads and they sounded pretty good but I wanted a warmer and a little more focused sound so I bought remo pinstripes and those were almost perfect but then I found these and they were perfect. These heads have a short sustain but are not dead in any way. The ring on the underside of the head gives the heads a low end sound perfect for rock. They are extremly warm and sound like you are playing a maple set. They are very close to Remos Powerstroke 3's if you prefer remo but I liked these better. If you are looking for an extremely warm head with just the right amount of sustain I would buy these right now. Add some Evans g1 clears on the bottom and you'll get an even better sound. Evans EC2 Coated heads are amazing an off the charts.

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

I have these in 8, 10, 12, and 14. They make the drums sound bigger than they actually are. They also kill unwanted overtones which is sweet. I don't care for the coating, I prefer just solid white, but the sound outweighs the looks. These heads are really durrable and will hopefully hold up a long time. They aren't too expensive, either.

Just the amount of resonance

By ZFDrummer

from Tulsa OK

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

I was looking for heads that would produce a nice warm tone without ringing for ever. These EC2 Coated heads were perfect. I use them for live performance and in the rehearsal studio on 2 different kits. They stay in tune (but that is probably due more to my hardware than the heads themselves). They are punchy, warm, with a quick decay. I have had many compliments on the sound of my drumkit from other drummers and I always give a lot of the credit to these heads.

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

I just installed the Evans EC2 Coated heads on my snare, rack and floor toms. I play a Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage kit, that had stock heads on it. My kit now has the most warm but punchy sound of any kit I have ever played. They have just the right amount of attack but with a beautiful warm decay. I love these heads, best I have ever owned. Thank You Evans!

Better than my Coated Emperors!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Evans EC2 Coated Batter Head:

I was searching for the right heads, these where the ones that went overpast my Coated Emperors that I have been playing for one year and five months. I recommend these just like the sales guy told me. plus they have that cool looking edge that looks like the pinstripes.
