      This thing is great.I use this with an EQ3 (22") and a Retro screen, and it's the best bass sound I've ever had.It has a lot of attack, it's powerful, and the muffler allows it to boom a little, but not so much where double bass work will be muddy sounding.It's nice to be done with blankets and pillows in my bass drum. With this, you can load and unload and never have to re adjust all of your muffling.It makes you look more professional, it's cheap, and it makes you sound better.The Resonant Gate System is also nice because it muffles the front head a little, even better for double bass playing.

      I really love the idea of this product, a kick pillow that won't flop around during transport, and it's adjustable with in the kick to customize your muffling. Perfect. Well, maybe not. I play a 22" kick, nothing out of the norm, and I simply cannot get this thing to muffle enough of the head, I have it pressed almost completely flush with the head, and it's not enough (keep in mind, I typically prefer a rather compressed kick tone)but I mean still it's not enough muffling, and also I wish it were longer to muffle the reso head a little too. Anyways, to solve my problem, I got some gibralter felt straps (old school method but does wonders in combination with the EQ pad)and played it at a gig the same night and it sounded like a cannon, even got a compliment from the sound guy. I think this may be better suited for 16-18-20 inch drums. If it works for you, great, I might try some other options later after playing with it some more. I wish they made a lager size or perhaps a "fluffier" version for more compresion.

      Just so you know where I'm coming from my specs are pdp x7 22x18 kick (maple) coated emperor (batter) fiberskyn2 (reso) with a kickport, gibralter felts and the eq pad.

      Comments about Evans EQ Pad Bass Drum Muffler:

      I loved this concept. I liked the idea of having internal bass drum muffling that wouldn't shift around and would remain set as I prefer it once I achieved my desired sound. It definitely beats the unsightly pillow trick. The pad remains placed via velcro straps. I tried various placements and ended up placing the pad nearly flush with my batter head. While it did improve my live and recording sound, I do wish they made various sizes/weights, as I believe I would have been better off with a pad that had more heft to it. I like a dry bass sound and I believe that would have been achieved with more weight in the pad. As I've said, it did improve my sound, but did not get me all the way to where I wanted to be.

                It definitely does the job. But I still find myself puttin extra dampening in my kick, mostly up against the batter head. Tried different batter heads with muffling built in and still wasn't quite right. To each his own, but might be better off with just a blanket still; )
