different than the emad

By ed-POKju

from Lake Villa IL

Comments about Evans GMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

How much difference can you make by going 10ml to 12ml? A lot. Got the 22 on my Mapex Birch kit with a ported Aquarian Regulator on the front. The sound is thick- and heavy. Which is good- maybe really good as I get used to it. I was used to a good amount of boom from the Emad and the Gmad is more like a solid thuwump. Best to describe it is a studio/mic ready- no muffling needed powerhouse. I also had to tune it a bit higher than my previous emad to get some resonance out of it- but it's a really interesting sound. I can't figure out what they did to "improve" the muffling ring (unless they changed the glue or plastic that holds the foam ring to the head) everything else looks the same. If you're looking for a power house, deep, round sound, thwump bass drum. This is a real surpise. This head would be fantastic for rock/metal/country/pop/funk.... not jazz or blues though..

Excellent for heavy music

By Cameron-LHQDg

from Fort Collins, CO

See all my reviews

Comments about Evans GMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

I'm not entirely sure if there's that big of a difference between this and the original emad, but this head is very nice regardless. I think the new design produces a slightly deeper resonance. I have the thick dampening ring on, with an aquarian regulator resonant head, and a large flat piece of egg crate foam layed flat in the drum to reduce the mid range resonance. This setup on my Tama Rockstar kick with a heavy falam patch and the plastic side of a DW beater produces a massive sound for hardcore and metal music, it hardly requires any EQ at all! Tons of lows and a perfect click. This is definately a worthy investment for and heavy drummer.

      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.

      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.

            I have been drumming for 43 years. Simply the best I have ever used. A bit pricey but they are durable and I have a HEAVY foot. I play with wood faced swivel head beaters and they are hard on my bass heads. Definitely get the HQ stickers the head will go dead before ever breaking :)

            Comments about Evans GMAD Clear Batter Bass Drumhead:

            There are a few different kick drum heads that I've come to like over the years, some sound better than others depending on which shell it's used on, and how it's used (open, ported, muffled...). I find the GMAD to have the best of all worlds. The thick 12 mil single ply repels the beater nicely for a great feel. The attack sound is easily controlled by the type of beater being used. The deep resonance of the GMAD is the best part. Oomph, Thud, Boom, Thunder, Whatever you call it, you hear it, and so does the audience!

                  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.

                        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.
