Nothing Negative Here

By Thomas Ausburn

Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

A valuable upgrade for anyone seeking to improve their Bass Drum sound and performance.
It has a coating on the Head and a Damper Ring attached. You get 2 Foam Rings that go inside the Damper, so you get to customize your sound and attack! A deep thud or a lighter bop-it's all here.
Very durable, well made.
Very good value. You get your money's worth in my opinion.

    Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

    Always had the problem with bass drum heads sounding like a big boom. Even when coming close to the sound I wanted it was not good enough. I wanted to have that definitive click without loosing power like you hear in deathcore, metal, rock, etc. Every other head I tried was too boomy, but not this head. This one has the perfect sound! And it has built in dampeners, 2 different size, that you can put in or leave out for different situations.

    Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

    i really usually dont like evans heads at ALL! but my friend recommended this head so i got it, and man this head is so good! a huge FAT thump is what youll get out of this head. youll never need to put anything in your bass drum anymore if you use the big foam ring. this is the only head i will ever use from evans and it will probably be on my kit for a long time to come.

          I took a chance on this and glad I did! What a thud I am getting from my kicks now. Plus two different size mute rings give me flexibility for any environment I am playing in.

          Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

          I play a lot of death metal (w/ double pedal), and other forms of heavy music, and I find that this is an amazing sounding head. When tuned well, it puts out a sound as good as any electric kit. And with the damper ring on the outside there is almost no need to fill the drum itself with insolation.

          Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

          i bought this head recentley after trying several differant batter heads on my 20x20 ddrum dominion bass drum. i have a aquarian resanator on the front. i have tried a super kick 2, and also a remo powersonic. none of them have come close to the evans onyx emad. this thing came out of the box and is tuned not super tight but medium tight and it made my bass drum extremely punchy. the bass should be the loudest thing on your kit and with this it will be. my bass sounds so amazing with this head. you should give this a try it is worth the money.

          Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

          These drumheads are the best of all the heads that i used... the aquarian superkick III, the remo powerstrokes, brazilian RMV's, And local latin percusion's.. but, the evans don't need a muffling coat or something to kill the harmonics... only put the EMAD ring of your choise... and play!!!

          This bass drum head is nice and punchy, along w/ the remo falam slam patch, it sounds exactly how i wanted it to. it is a bit quiet though, maybe its my drumming or my pedals. idk great overall appearance and sound.

          22", its punchy, it takes a beating and it lets all of the attack come off your beaters. throw a kevlar pad on and you'll have this head for years.

          Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

          I ran sound for multiple bands recently. The first band's drummer had this head on his kick. When mic'd, it sounded amazing. Absolutly great. After they were finished, I had to go up and check it out for myself. Really nice and low. Very pleasing un-mic'd as well. I went to get a 24" by MF doesn't have them or Evans doesn't make them. Maybe another time.
