Used the clear model for a little over 4 months on an Evans emad. I use the plastic side of the beater, have somewhat of a heavy foot and I tend to dig in to the head, I dont expect patches to last for ever. This didn't look impressive at first but I cleaned the head applied it and had no problems with it staying on. The feel of this patch I loved and it improved attack on my kick. I used to use power centers from old heads that I cut into squares as patches but they affected the feel of the head and attack was minimal. After 4 months I inspected the patch and it was about to wear through, but the way I play I don't consider that bad. I was able to peel the patch off reclean the head and reposition it to hit a different spot and expect to get another 4 months easily before I have to use the second patch. (i'm also cheap) If you use a felt beater or don't dig into the head it should last considerably longer I would think. This felt the most like playing on a naked head with out ruining your head.

Not sure how drummers are breaking this thing in a few weeks, or what was different in my patch than other reviews, but my black patch was a good quality woven nylon looking thing, not the plastic as it is described here. maybe the clear patches are just the plastic ones *shrug* My patch has protected my head for months now and I'm a heavy metal hitter. What makes this patch a terrible buy is the adhesive, my beaters get pretty warm by the end of my sets, and the patches over time just fall off. Then of course the head is ruined because the adhesive is still stuck to the head, not the patch, and affixing another patch is a waste of time because it too will fall and much sooner than the last one.

Great Patches!

By MattieDrummin

from Charlotte, NC

See all my reviews

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

They stick fine to the kick head (when following directions) and they last a long time (when you know how to play). Good techniques is part of being a musician. Playing/kicking harder isn't going to make it sound better. It's only going to cost you more $$$. To all the people interested in a drum patch, this one is perfect. I have used others and to me this one is best.

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

These are GREAT! I have had them on my Evans Hydrolic head for over 3 YEARS and not ONE dimple (and I am a HARD & HEAVY kicker). Won't mess with the sound or feel of the head and absolutely prolongs the life of it. If you don't have one....GET ONE!!!!!!!! (actually, you're getting two. lol)

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

This is a great patch, not sure why people don't seem to like it. Maybe they forgot to read the directions and put some rubbing alcohol on the bass drum head before putting it on. All in all, this thing sticks.

Just Perfect

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

I've almost 4 years with the same patch on my bass drum, I switched to wood beaters, I don't hit too hard, but after a year hitting almost every day with wood batters, there is no sign of harm, besides that GAVIN HARRISON uses it! (but please don't tell the remo guys..)Just buy it!

Good Patch

By ThtAtlasFallDrummer08

from North Judson, IN

See all my reviews

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

I've had two patches on two different heads. My first one, I wore through the patch after about a year and a half, or so, but that was because I was using the plastic side of a rather cheap beater, and that wore it down. The head underneath actually broke, but I didn't know till I took off the head because of the worn out patch. My second one has shown no signs of wear and works great. I put the patch straight on a new head, and it hasn't ever come off. This is a good buy, cause it's cheap and very effective.

Works Great

By Matthew Benyamin

from Mesa, AZ

See all my reviews

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

great for the price and definitely saved my electronic bass drum. the rubber was starting to mess up from playing so much and this totally solves that.
sticks great with no problems even on my electronic drums it sticks great.
definitely made out of a tough material.
comes with two durable double bass patches just in case. they probably won't wear out any time soon.

This Is Great! People Just Have Bad Technique

By Ministry Surround Drumorama

from Portland, OR

See all my reviews

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

This is a great bass drum patch. Maybe people don't read the directions where it says to wipe the area you are covering with alcohol to get rid of things that would alter the adhesive. Sticks strongly to the head when applied CORRECTLY!!! I am surprised people wear through these. If you hit hard enough to smash through these then you must go through bass drum heads like crazy. Awesome patch good technique makes it last forever.

EQ Double Bass Badge - not good with mesh heads

By Daniel Vachon

from Arvada, Co.

Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

I bought this to apply to an expensive mesh head, but it only stuck for about 30 seconds then flew off. I was told it would work on mesh heads but to no avail. I think it would be fine on a standard acoustic mylar/plastic head, but don't get this if you plan to apply it to a mesh head.

              I have used a black double patch for 10+ years. They save your head and improve you sound. I would use this for the sound difference even if it did not save the head but thank goodness it does both. I use a hard mallet on my bass drum and I have changed heads from old age, peel off the badge and take a look at the head and it shows little sign of wear by the wear pattern on the badge. Nice job!

                    this was a great product and i love how it makes you bass drum feel more durable. this thing is pretty much a second ply for a bass drum!!! now, the clear one says that it does not change sound. i think it does just a bit, but i actualy like the sound better than when it is off. it adds more of a low end *tick* you dont get with coated heads. BUY THIS PRODUCT!! its worth your time and money!
