OVERVIEW

Fast bass damping adjustment without head removal.

The Evans EMAD Clear Batter Drumhead comes with 2 damping rings, each of which affects the head's sound and pedal response. EMAD stands for Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping and this external system maximizes natural attack characteristics. It offers tremendous dynamic range (even at low dynamic levels where other systems fall short). The Evans drumhead also allows quick, easy adjustments without having to remove the head from the drum-an especially valuable feature during recording sessions. Evans EMAD bass drumheads come in 18", 20", 22", and 24" sizes.

Best sounding bass drum head ever. It includes two different size dampening rings (depending on your taste) I've tried every other BD head. Remo powerstroke 3, pinstripe and evans EQ 3 and 4. Nothing compares to the EMAD. Gives your bass that perfect THUMP! You could put this head on cardboard box and it would make it sound good

This is truly a nice sounding and feeling head. The features are amazing no internal muffling needed. However I have an issues with it's durability. The great tone you get at first soon fades to a more average tone. Without a patch this head will soon dent or break. I'm not a really heavy hitter so other heads have lasted 2-3 times as long. My main concern is the plastic that holds the Ex Muffling it WILL break defeating the whole purpose. Now you need internal muffling and you have a less then desirable head.

        Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        I just barely got this today, and I am amazed! This bass drum head was a huge improvement from the stock head on my Peavey International 2 kit. My bass doesn't have the previous hollow, plasticky slap anymore. It is deep, full, and sounds like a cannon. My bass is also a lot louder too. This is an amazing drum and I recommend it to anyone!

        Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        Forget stuffing your bass with pillows and sheets. This beater head has awesome sound on its own and the foam resonator rings do the job awesome. I personally run the wider ring but it also comes with a narrower ring. I even run my bass with the EVANS Retro Screen. Highly recommend this for awesome power and sound!

            Great head! provides just the right combination of punch and tone. Sounds killer and is ultra durable. Will last for years and you can kick into it super hard, and the head will withstand it. Buy this head.

              Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

              I gigged around a lot 70s and 80s but just recently got back into playing and had to catch up with the new technology. Using a 20" bass drum these days and experimenting with a number of heads and combinations, I've found that the EMAD (one ply) with the smaller dampening ring and coupled with an Evans EQ3 reso with no port, the drum sounds punchy, low, and full. There is absolutely no need for any internal muffle (ie. a pillow). Get the EMAD and EQ3 and you are GTG.

                I'm a beginner drummer, but my brother is a full time drummer in Austin. I asked his advice on the best kick drum head, and he recommended this one. I could not have been happier with the improvement in sound over the previous head.

                      I always liked the sound I got out of my 22inch silverstar. I had the original Tama head on it for over a year and decided to upgrade to Evans across the set. With the new head, this sounds so much better. I didn't think it could get better. I use one pillow and this emad head. Wow. It's such a solid, prominate punch. I have speed cobras with original beaters and it sounds great with fast double or grooving single bass. Many of my band mates agree that Evans across the set has brought a much sweeter sound to the all birch shells.

                        Tried this with high expectations after all the positive reviews - the head gives very little muffling, even with the wider muffle ring. I found I had to put additional muffling into the kick drum; so what is the point of having this head? The Aquarian Super Kick II is a much better head if you like your kick muffled.
