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.

    So nice to not need any pillows in the bass drum. This head improves the sound of my cheap old kit as well as my new DW kit. Highly recommend!

      Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

      I am not a drummer, but I own the kit that our group uses in my room. Have a pearl export kit that was showing signs of normal use after a year of jamming weekly. I decided to replace the stock demo heads with a complete set of evans heads. What a difference! To me, the kit always sounded adequate for our amateur group, but with the new heads, it sounds like a more expensive kit to me. It has even inspired me to pick up the sticks every once in a while. As for the Emad bass drum head, it made the 22" drum sound heavier and more thumpy, also it seems to be more durable than the stock head. I left the stock reso head on the other side and still heard an improvement in the bass. I was also able to remove the pillows I had inside and gained a little more volume without the drum getting ring. Fast forward to jam night, the drummer tried em out, and loved them. He said he will probably be getting the Emad if not a whole set for his own kit. The removable tone ring is also a nice component for tweaking your sound a bit.

      Comments about EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

      awesome - this head sounds great. tone is excellent. i had a demo power stroke - -which was fine but the dampening ring started to come of. while these have 2 rings for different degrees of dampening, i chose to use neither as the head made my 22"DW bass drum sing. other guys in the band noticed immediately - the boom, the tone - EVANS all the way.

      Put it on the PDP Kit at church and used larger damping ring for a quitter tight sound. The original head was on and would not adjust so this head was a great replacement and with Evans you can't go wrong in my opinion. Thanks Musicians Friend for an awesome choice selection. Always a pleasure!

      Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

      The emad 2 made my bass drum sound the best it's ever been. I put this on my PDP 22x18 and my bass drum sounds phenomenal, it has a great attack and a nice low. In my opinion this drum head can be used for all types of different music, it can be tuned higher for a jazzy sound or reggae sound and tuned low for rock/metal sound. It's super durable. Highly recommended

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        All I can say is wow.... I recently jumped off the Remo bandwagon, for several reasons. I just was growing tired of the sound I was getting and needed a change. The kicks didn't have the sound I was looking for in my head and neither did the snares. Toms were lackluster and so on. I've never heard a bad word against Evans, so when I decided to re head my expansive kit this time around I chose Evans. And man let me tell ya, I'm never going back.
        These heads bring out tones I didn't know my kicks had! I'm running 2 22x18 Pearl Vision 6 ply Birch kick drums and honestly they sound better to me now than some of the reference kick drums which are arguably the best kick shells ever made. I use the small foam ring and a Evans AF patch because I'm using Vater Percussion wood beaters. There is plenty of punch, low end but it's all well defined and not muddy. I'm sure some people will frown upon this, but I sometimes, depending on the environment add some click with triggers. I struggled with figuring out how to go about this with this particular head because the DDRUM pro triggers rest where the plastic ring of the eMad is glued to the head. Luckily I was able to get a hold of Evans, which by the way have some of the best customer support I've ever encountered, and we got it taken care of. All you have to do is very gently with a hobby knife cut a square out of the ring, slightly bigger than the triggers piezo element so it works correctly and then gaffer tape over the trigger to add stability to the foam ring which also has to be cut. He also a included a picture he got from a tech out on the road doing the same thing, I will include this if I can. All in all you can't go wrong with this head, so quite reading all these reviews and get kickin!
