Best resonant head yet

By DB-h7H2C

Comments about Evans EQ3 Black Resonant Bass Drumhead:

I've got a closet full of resonant kick heads...all makes and models. And I've tried them all on different drums. A good test of a resonant head is how it sounds when you tap the middle, straight out of the box...unmounted. Most heads just give a dull thump or tight, flappy sound. Some Remos, Aquarians and Evans heads give a decent tone that way, but this one gives a really good low tone when you tap it. It has plenty of material (not tight), with room to flex and has some wobble to it, which is what I want. Hard to get resonance out of a tight, round piece of sealed plastic. Whatever the head sounds like unmounted is a pretty good indication of how it's going to affect your drum's natural resonance. I love it! Price? I don't even remember what I paid...does that really matter if you need pro equipment?

    Comments about Evans EQ3 Black Resonant Bass Drumhead:

    I usually worry more about batter side heads but that will change after trying this head out. I matched it with an Aquarian Super Kick II and a PDP 22x18 bass and it sounds amazing. And it doesn't ring forever but keeps a good tone. I even took out the pillow that PDP ships with bass drums. Beautiful tone!

    Comments about Evans EQ3 Black Resonant Bass Drumhead:

    I just recently purchased this resonant bass drum head to replace the stock on my PDP Z5 series drumset and I have to say that I am utterly impressed with the sound I am now getting! In combination with the EMAD batter head, this is a huge difference of positive sound coming from a low-end bass drum. It was a breeze tuning this head and after letting it set for a good 24 hours, good low-end punch. Good job on pricing MF. a huge thank you for shipping costs, and thank you Evans for this wonderful product! This is a good upgrade to stock resonant heads.

    Comments about Evans EQ3 Black Resonant Bass Drumhead:

    I recently got this drumhead at guitar center, because my stock resonant bass head was worn-out, sounded dead, and looked kinda weird. I really like this head. I still have my stock batter head on the bass drum, and it seems like my bass is missing something. It could only be the eq3 clear batter, of course. This head just sounds downright awesome. Even without anything in the bass, this resonant head sounds great. You should definitely get this drumhead.

    Amazing Quality

    Comments about Evans EQ3 Black Resonant Bass Drumhead:

    I recently sold my Gammon Percussion set and purchased a nice used 5 piece Tama, and replaced all the heads with Evans heads. This particular head is one that i use on my 20" bass drum, and it is amazing! The sound is almost perfect for recording, and the port hole is good for adding to the sound quality and control. I would highly recommend it!

    Comments about Evans EQ3 Black Resonant Bass Drumhead:

    I was debating for a while about having a ported Resonant Bass Drum Head... I took out the stupid pillow my friend had in the bass drum, put on the ported resonant head, and I am never going back. Do your slef a favor and give it a shot!
