I had always play Remo- exclusively. I took a chance and bought the EMAD system (batter and resonant) for my kick drum and I couldn't be happier. I use the wider of the two rings supplied with nothing else for dampening. I did not port the resonant head, although I think I might someday jst for fun. I play a 22"X20" maple shell kick and the EMAD plus the extra depth gives a sound that I've never been able to get to this point in 30+ years pf playing. Keep bass drums heads in perspective please- shell material. drum size, and the person on the throne account for 90% of the drum sound equation. Heads are the remaining 10%.
Love the two provided foam rings. It's all you need to get be up and running in about 10 minutes. No more experimenting with duct tape, paper towels, and other junk.
Evans, you've come a long way...
All drum heads seem overpriced. This is no exception. Not horrible though

I thought this head would solve my problems. I had an Evans EQ3, which I absolutely loved. The hole cracked from the microphone bumping the edge, and I eventually blew a hole threw the head. I thought the EMAD would be the way to go, but I was wrong. It is the same thickness as the EQ3, but it produces extra overtones, which I hate. I never had to throw a blanket in my bass drum, but now I do. In addition to that, the pads are horrible. I put them on properly, never tearing them, and they both ripped after one use. I'm not a heavy hitter by any means. I should have read the reviews before I bought this head. Save a few extra bucks and get the EQ3 if you are an Evans fan, because this one is not worth it.

                  I use the EMAD resonant head without anything in the bass drum. The mic port concentrates the sound beautifully for recording. I was previously alternating between no resonant head, & a Remo reso head with a 12" hole in the middle, with various towels or pillows in the drum. The EMAD makes a tremendous difference in the focused depth and power of the recording signal. Superb. Kudos!

                      Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

                      I'm a heavy hitter and like a wide open sound as well as a deep controlled sound. That is usually tough to achieve. Evans Emad systems have really made that possible. The addition of the resonant head to the Emad system is the last piece of the puzzle. I feel like I have total control now of the tone I get. Well
                      Done Evans! Highly recommend!
