I absolutely love the new Evans EMAD 2 clear drum head, I have a 24" Tama Silverstar birch bass drum, and this head with the included dampining rings have givin my bass such a great sound, also in combination with the Evans EMAD black resonate head, that I have absolutely no internal dampening in my bass drum what so ever! Sounds great acousticlly, miced live, and in the studio. Great sounding and durable product :)

I was in the market for a new batter skin for my kick drum and saw this puppy. I replaced it with a Remo and noticed the Remo was thicker than this skin. Also I compared sounds from the two and the Remo had more of a thicker sound and very little sustain. Also the ring of the skin fit nicely around the shell and the mount to tighten the skin was nicely fitted. This skin will sound good if properly tuned and has a longer sustain, even with the thickest padding offered. It was a bit of a hassle to put the rings on the skin. I have a 20 inch ddrum and the ring of the skin didn't fit nicely around the drum and when tightening I had to force the ring to place as I tighten to have it evenly flushed to tune it correctly. Overall a good skin but when I need another batter skin for my kick I'll look elsewhere. Now the sound, as I mention if tuned properly it sounds nice. Good attack reasonable sustain and mic'ed up on a concert sounds nice with all the elements working together. If you like tone and sustain on your drums this is for you, if you like more of a "thud" type sound, look elsewhere. I'm sticking to Remo or try the other brands. One more thing... this looks like an average skin but with a pocket glued to it to add the padding.

      Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

      I Bought Two Emad 2 Bass Drum Head's over a year ago, i play on my kit all the time, also my son also plays on it. I do mainly single Bass beats , but my son plays Double Pedal, and its all done on the Emad 2 Head. I have not had one problem with it. I DO recommend this Bass Drum head to everyone i meet that plays drums,its the first thing i ask them, what kind of Bass Drum Head do you use. This is well made, and for the price you can't go wrong.

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        A couple years ago I did an exhaustive search for the right heads. I tried everything. In the end it seemed that I had found the right ones when I started using Aquarian. I still like the Aquarian brand but recently I wanted to try something different and had switched from the Superkick II to the EMAD2 (switched toms to Evans too). I am really glad I did. I love this kick head. It has a great attack sound that works really well for my style of playing. I play rock music infused with elements of punk, sludge, hard, and garage sound.

        I had used the Superkick II for years and one thing that I notice about the EMAD2 is that it does not have the same "boom" projection that can be heard with the Super II. The "boom" from the super II sounds great when playing simple beats but I didn't like how the head sound fast beats or with a double pedal. Also, I find the rebound response of the pedal from EMAD2 to be a much nicer feel.
        In a live NON miked setting the Superkick II might project better and cut through the other instruments but other than practicing all my shows are with a miked setup so that isn't an issue.

        I know all kits sound different so for reference I play on a 22" TAMA Starclassic (Birch).

        Highly recommended!

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        I wasn't satisfied with the head that came on a second hand Yamaha Power V kit I bought, so a friend suggested that I get this EMAD head. In my mind, I thought a head is just a head, could it really make a difference? I was shocked. I have it tuned to just past wrinkled (without the beater sticker) and it thumps. Great low end, no ringing. I can now remove the pillow. Head seems more responsive to the pedal as well. I think this is a fantastic head and I can't waitto thank my friend for the suggestion. Now here is my suggestion to you...get it!!

        Review of EMAD 2 Clear Batter Head

        By ross johnson

        from Louisiana

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        this is the best head i have ever used in over thirty years!

        no pillows and other crap needed to get a good sound.

        i put this head on a kick drum with no hole on the front head, nor any muffling whatsoever....and it rocked! i used the bigger ring for a little more muffle, but the small default one was fine. the stick on slam for the beater really gave it the click i wanted to hear. my bassdrum has that Metallica/Pantera tone before i even mic it!
        built in muffle and slam. no pillow or other stuff needed.
        nice build quality.
        there is no better skin for rock/metal!

            Bought my children the beginners drum set two years ago, just in case I didn't have a drummer in the family - turns out I have two! Never had the money to upgrade the entire set so been doing piece by piece. The double kick finally wore out the batter head, so we sought to replace. This Evans head made that cheap ole kick drum sound a 1000 times better. I mean, wow! Great product! Great price!

              Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

              i got a set of ludwig centennials, and the 20x24 kick was a dissappointment. it came with remo powerstroke III heads, and it just did not have the thunder i knew this drum was capable of. i replaced the reso with an aquarian, and that helped slightly. when i put this emad 2 on, i could not stop laughing. it completely changed the character of the drum. i now have a force of nature for a bassdrum, and i couldn't be happier.
              i haven't had any durability issues at all. i'm a diehard remo user, but this emad 2 is spectacular. i put one on my sonor 16x20 (for jazz gigs), and i can get any sound i want out of it just with tuning and/or damping ring change.

              EMAD 2 Clear Batter Head - Simply the best bass drum head made yet

              By Drew Bogert

              from Tennessee

              Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

              I just now got to writing this review. I've had this head for around 3 months now, and I absolutely love it. The tonal options you have in this head are endless. From low, piuchy rock/ metal sounds, to nice full mid pitched tones for jazz, all of the m come through and come through extremely well. You're tuning options are endless. I've also noticed with evans heads more than any other that they stay "more wet" than most if you know what I mean. Long story short, if you buy this head, you won't be dissapointed.
