I got a patch with an Evan E-MAD 2 head I bout back in August of 2010. Now it's May of 2011 and I just no notice a small hole in it so I will be buying another one very soon. I play my drums everyday except for Sunday (because of the neighbors) and I'm sort of a hard hitter when it comes to my kcik drum so it may take you a little longer to wear it out if you're not a heavy hitter or don't play frequently. Still it's pretty good if it takes me 9 moths to wear it out.I highly recommend it to any drummer.

        Comments about Evans EQ Bass Drum Patch:

        I have used other pads and I found out the hard way they do not work not even for a back up. They left my, DW 9000's ( I own 3 from Musician's Friend), beaters with residue on then and ripped, split or even fell our but not when I used EVANS. EVANS makes the best in heads so why would you choose anything else? I do not like throwing my money away by buying other bass drum pads so I now only get EVANS. I have over 126 gigs so far for 2014 so I need what works and I have had these bass pads outlast the bass heads.

        This patch sticks to your bass drum and protects it from being damaged, it's especially great for heavy hitters. I like it because it prolongs the life of your bass drum head.

          Comments about Evans EQ Bass Drum Patch:

          I don't use these as kick pads. I use them on my snare drums and have for decades. I use the Fl**m kevlar on my kick drums and I havent kicked thru a drum since. But this little dandy patch goes smack in the middle of my maple custom 14" and pork pie brass snares, both remo coated ambassadors. 3+ decades of the same heads and I just couldnt afford to keep replacing so soon. One day I plopped one of these in the middle(after proper stretch but no strikes) and it has become just a part of replacing heads. I still get the greatest snap when striking center of this little pad, but i get all kinds of tones and snare rattle as I strike and caress outside of the patch. The glue holds firmly and my snare skins are outlasting most of my toms now. The patches always stay put, even as the head stretches during retune, over time. The patch doesnt stretch, but the glue never fails. I can see when its time to replace heads by watching the markings of where the patch began before restretch. It is really quite shocking how much longer snare heads last now. It hasn't killed the overtones, and i still use 1/2 a moon G*L (used to need 1) per skin near edge. However, the patch seems to give me a drier spot to whack. The downside is that it isnt a free patch, and you need to clean before applying. I have applied over a used head and it stuck. Also, brushes tend to catch on it just a little bit. I don't do brush work much, so it didnt bother me. If you use a LOT of brushes, perhaps your results may vary. The writing on the patch disappears LONG before the head needs replaced. If you're a rock drummer that hits with a vengeance, maybe give a shot. I love marching band sounding snares, and this patch gives me that for center strikes. Lotsa pop, lesser damage... worth the price of admission.

                        The EQ Bass Drum patch has proven itself, time and time again for me. I use the clear because, to me, it has a more natural sound to it than the black. Again, just my opinion. Really helps with the Longevity of my Bassdrum head and adds just a little more "Umph" to my kick. A product I can trust to do what it's supposed to do.

                          I've used these for years---I've tried both the Remo Falaam and the Evans AF pads and they're too thick and too prone to change the tone to something boxier than I like. The EQ provides protection for the head without having much of an affect on the sound. Also, now that I'm playing a converted acoustic kit as an e-kit, protecting the head, which isn't cheap, and the beater, which mesh tends to chew up, is easier with the EQ patch.
