The EMAD Heavyweight series features two plies of film. The combination of two identical plies of 10mil film provides maximum durability and a compressed attack while maintaining a wide dynamic range. The EMAD Heavyweight contains two interchangeable damping rings that maximize attack and low-end without removing the head or reaching inside the drum. The unparalleled industry standard Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping (EMAD) system allows the player to adjust attack and focus.

Great choice for low end thud

Comments about Evans EMAD Heavyweight Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

Pretty awesome , big fat deep thud like advertised, no more blankets in the drum. The damper rings are all you would ever need. We'll see how well it holds up.

    Comments about Evans EMAD Heavyweight Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

    I've been relying on the Evans EMAD heads for probably a decade now. I used to always put a heavy pillow in my kick to muffle some of the resonance and mitigate the sustain but it would also dampen the attack and when recording with good gear the drawbacks came through very clearly.

    The first time I put one of these heads on my drum it was like, "oh, so THAT's how you get a kick drum to sound awesome." Very clean attack, with enough resonance and sustain that it sounds great live, and since you've got 3 options for dampening (none, the thin, or the thick one) you can play anything from jazz to metal to house with the same head.

    I play heavy, so the thicker one is worth it for me; the sound isn't affected too much. My only gripe I guess is that the foam things can be annoying to fit in the groove--you have to fuss with it for a few minutes. Also you have to figure out where to store the foam ring(s) you're not using where they won't get bent or otherwise damaged. But overall, these are the best kick heads I've ever used.

      I use double bass pedals. It's a lot thicker than my first head. Like the option of different thicknesses on the foam rings for the muffle effect

        Comments about Evans EMAD Heavyweight Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        The thickness of the rim made it close to impossible to fit in my BD hardware. I had a gig the next day so it was too late to replace so I made it work. I have an 80's Pearl Export kit so check your hardware to see if it will fit. Has a good sound and I like the additional foam ring options.

          Comments about Evans EMAD Heavyweight Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

          Ended up getting the same brand for the resonance head and the sound really came together more uniformly. I wish they companies manufacturing these heads would offer dual packs at a reasonable price, then we could afford to change heads more often.

            Great punch & attack with awesome durability. No additional muffling required (previously used EQ Pad). Sounds fantastic with the thinner External O Ring installed on a 24" Tama Superstar Drum. Very pleased with this product!

                This is the best bass head Ive ever used. It has great punch and tone without sounding dead like it would if you had the drum stuffed with a blanket or pillow. The foam ring does a great job of controlling the sound. Its heavy weight means you can really put your foot down without really hurting it over time... Which im also happy about.
