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:

          The Evans EMAD 2 is hands down the best kick drum head abailable. I used the Aquarian Super Kick 2 for over ten years but within the last year I've switched to this head. This drum head has a removable/replacable external dampening ring (comes with two different sizes for desired dampening) that sets it apart from the rest. The EMAD 2 is double ply for greater durability and also adds a "thud" that many drummers find desirable. I would recommend this kick drum head, along with their other batter and resonant heads, to every drummer.

              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.

              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!
