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:

Ive had this head for about six months now and just cant through how amazing it is! I spent about three years looking to stray away from muffling my kit at all, i just dont like it. And i came across this head and good tuning. I LOVE IT! everyone asks how i managed for thunder to come out my bass, i say ive got an emad! I tuned that baby right up with an aquatian regulator and the small ring. AND BAM! its set.

    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.

      Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

      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.

        As a former endorser for Aquarian I have to say this beats the super kick hands down. I changed out all of my bass drums to this head.

        Amazing

        Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        This made my bass drum sound very good. Its very durable, and is the best bass drum head i've used. Buy it, you wont be disapointed. Just put in 1 pillow, with this head, and tune it low, and youll have an amazing bass drum sound.
        The foam ring it has does muffle it, but not enough by itself. I put one pillow in my bass drum and tuned it pretty low and it sounds absolutley AMAZING.
        It's very durable, and I have not had 1 problem with it.

        Amazing sound

        from Georgetown, Oh

        Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        Well, what can I say about this head. It definitely has a killer bass drum sound. Price was nothing to worry about when you get cheered for at gigs about your bass drum sound. I usually play hard rock and metal so double pedals and this head go together perfectly if you do that sort of thing. Personally I would reccomend this head to anybody if they are willing to spend some extra money. I gave it a 9 because I've only had it for a week now and so far so good but then you never can tell.

        Kick a** kick head with one flaw

        By master

        from Snow hill NC

        Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        This is an awesome head the dampening ring helps a lot it reduces the use of pillows and blankets. The only fault is that the dampening ring makes it impossible to tune with a tuner or pressure gage. If you think your good enough by ear go right ahead and get it.

        Nice head, recyclable!

        By Odiethewuff

        from Rio Rancho, New Mexico

        Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        I had this head quite a while back, absolutely loved it. I never had a problem with the plastic ring breaking or cracking, rather the only issue is that it didn't seem to last as long as any of my other bass drum heads. For repairing the plastic ring if it separates from the head, use "Duck" brand window adhesive double-stick tape. It works just as well as the original tape, and I used it to attatch the ring from my broken EMAD onto my EQ4 head!

        excellent head, but needs changing...

        Ask me a question

        Comments about Evans EMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        Anyone buying this head can't go wrong! I like this single ply head over the Emad 2 simply because it has more punch and tone, without the plastic "slappy" attack sounds associated with 2-ply heads. These heads hold up extreemly well when used with a good falam patch such as made by Remo. Over time these heads loose their punch, volume and tone. Don't be fooled...its a gradual thing, and won't be noticed until you find yourself turning up the lows in your bass drum mix. I just replaced them again on my Mapex Maple double kicks and couldnt believe the difference. Rule of thumb...if you gig out alot as I do, change them every 6 months. Just my 2 cents...I use Attack anti-overtone ressonants, both heads just finger tight to get rid of the wrinkles, and the larger foam Emad ring. No pillows needed! This combination really delivers that punch in the chest sound that the subs like to deliver!
