OVERVIEW

Get unique tones with these edge-controlled drumheads.

The Evans EC2 coated drumheads feature an Edge- Control ring mounted underneath two plies of 7mm film. By controlling edge vibration instead of eliminating it, the ring isolates and damps higher overtones, enhancing low end and attack, and enabling a broader tuning range. The coated Evans heads deliver additional warmth, focus, and depth, plus a unique translucent appearance.

FEATURES
  • Replacement drumhead sizes include:
  • Rock: 10", 12", and 16" heads
  • Standard: 12", 13", and 16" heads
  • Fusion: 10", 12", and 14" heads
  • 2 plies of 7mm coated film

Find out why so many drummers prefer EC2s.

Trying out new heads can be an expensive proposition, but for several years I would try new brands or models each time I switched out my heads, to get a better feel for what options were out there. I tried a variety of Remo, Aquarian, and Evans heads, but once I put these Evans EC2 heads on, I've never bothered trying anything else. I can't imagine any way in which another head could improve on them. They sound fantastic, helping to dampen excessive overtones and imparting a rich, deep tone. I typically tune my toms a bit low, but even tightened up these heads sound great. And they really last, even under heavy hitting. I can easily get twice the life out of these that I can out of any other brand I've tried.

Put on a studio drum kit tried theses after using standard G2s with same tuning they just really did not produce the tone. The sustain shortening was the killer for me. For a live kit that gets beat on alot they'd be be fine and durable.

      These heads can instantly improve the sound of any drum. Control unwanted overtones without the use of tape or ugly stick-on dampening devices.

        super tom heads

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Evans EC2 SST Coated Drumhead Pack:

        These are truly wonderful tom heads---my new favorite--replacing Remo coated Ambassadors. Mid and low toms sound awesome. I ended up putting a coated Evans 360 on the high tom, as it wasn't singing properly with the EC2, but honestly I think that's a failure in the tom itself. These have lots of body. I haven't recorded with them yet, but I can't imagine them not sounding good. Now I'm hitting Evans heads all around, and my kit sounds the best it's ever sounded. Well worth your consideration.

            I installed the new Evans 360 on two of my sets. They are setup in two entirely different acoustic settings but both sound great. I'm very pleased with the price and sound.

                Comments about Evans EC2 SST Coated Drumhead Pack:

                I refurbished a Pearl Forum kit (circa 2000) for a friend's studio. The toms (12, 13) are "power toms," deeper than standard toms by an inch (and deeper than "fast toms" by two inches). The kit is pretty cheaply made of bass wood and the toms with worn-out pre-Level 360 G2s rang like gongs. The bottom heads (pre-Level 360 G1s) looked in good shape so I left 'em.

                I meant to order the clear EC2s, but ordered the frosted by accident. After they were tuned up, the drums sound great! I've read some reviews that the EC2s choked the drums out. I've never used them before, but on the old Forums they made the drums sound nice and full, and have a long-ish (but not overly long) sustain.

                Perhaps on punchier drums, the sustain might be too short for some ears, but on this kit they work perfectly.

                I recently got these heads, and I previously played Evans G2s. I much rather these. Many people prefer G2s and then they muffle the heads through their own means. The common complaint is that these sound already too muffled. I like this kind of sound. I definitely don't think it's too muffled. I love the sound, my new favorite heads.

                  Comments about Evans EC2 SST Coated Drumhead Pack:

                  I purchased a set of Evans EC-2 coated tom heads along with a kick and snare head. All arrived in good order. I replaced the heads on my studio kit and all sounded terrific! A few days later when I arrived at the studio I noticed the 13 inch tom head looked odd. When I struck it, it sounded terrible. It looked as if the oil layer had picked up water. Quite colorful, but detrimental. I called MF and they dispatched a replacement head out-- no cost to me! That's service.

                  The replacement head arrived a couple of days later, but alas, it was not the same type. They had sent me an EC-2 360 clear head. Well, time was short so I decided to just use it. As it happens, the sound was still very much like the coated heads. I use a clear snare head so it's sort of a "salt and pepper" look to the kit. Overall, I'm pleased.

                    I have a gretsch catalina(birch) that had g2 clears on the toms at first. the toms were a little too bright for my taste and they kinda had too much slap on them, which is bad when you play in small venues like i do. so i bought these based on the reviews and i couldn't be more pleased. as soon as i put them on the toms and tuned them up, i fell in love with the sounds they let out. great warm, beefy sound with great stick definition too. i would recommend these heads to anyone that asks.
