        EMAD/GMAD are the deepest and best sounding bass drum batter heads I have ever used. If you want deep, punch and slap this is the one.

        Comments about Evans GMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

        I have the 24 inch GMad. The muffling rings will fall completly out if not secured with a few pieces of tape. The retainer is not broken, it just doesn't provide enough grip to hold the ring in place or the rings are just not rigid enough, so they collapse and fall out. I like the sound of this head. To my ear it has more fundimental than the other *mad heads. The GMad would rate an enthusiastic 5 stars were it not for the disfunctional muffling system.

            I've played on an Aquarian Super Kick 3 head and it really doesn't even compare to this bass drum head! This is extremely responsive! And really accents when the beater hits the head. This is the BEST bass drum head I've ever purchased and I'll never get another type of bass drum head except this one

                This is the sound I have been searching for. I put it on, let it seat for a few days, re-tune and, wow thunder. When I play my bass softly the response is perfect. The attack is just right , no matter what style of music I am playing. I know I can always count on Evans heads to come through.

                      this is a great head. i use it on my 22" mapex saturn and there's plenty of resonant projection along with a thuddy punch. of course, you can change the tone with their patented emad system. great quality. if anything it might be a little too flat sounding, but there's so much definition that way. great mic'ed, ideal for just about any style.

                      GMAD Kicks!

                      By Matthew Grulick

                      from USA

                      Comments about Evans GMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

                      I couldn't be happier. I have already strongly recommended the GMAD kick batter head to other drummers. It sounds great un-mic'd. I haven't had a chance to play it yet live with a mic, but I have no doubt from the natural sound that it will mic up perfectly and save me lots of time messing with EQ during sound check.
                      I wouldn't normally expect to rate features on a drum head, but the GMAD kick drum batter head actually has features in the insertable dampening rings. And, I can say that they do exactly what Evans advertises. They also throw in a reinforcing patch for the batter head. Nice touch.
                      Well made, no question.
                      A few dollars more than a standard head, but worth every penny when it comes to getting great sound quickly and easily.
