      OVERVIEW

      Evans E-Rings are an easy way to control overtones from your drumhead. Overlay them on top of the drum and they flatten and round out the drum's sound making it easier to tune. Save time in the studio and get killer snare sound. A great value too, because they're reusable.

      The E-Rings are available in two configurations. The fusion pack consists of 10", 12" and two 14" rings, while the standard pack offers 12", 13", 14" and 16" rings.

      Hear your drum's true pitch, control overtones, and tune easily.


      Pure tone and value. Let your true sound come through.

      Evans E-Rings do precisely what they claim; to rid your drums whether it be a snare or tom, of unwanted sustain and overtones. I have a Mapex Pro-M Maple Studio double bass kit that sounds awsome, but the sustain and overtone is too much. Yes I've tried various tuning, and have bought and tried many different ressonant and batter heads claiming to cure the problem...trust me, don't waiste any money! Heres what to do! Stay with your loyal brand of heads, Buy some E-Rings, and tune your heads this way, if you want your kit to sound totally awsome!! Step#1. Tune each drum to its "sweetspot". This is where you'll hear the fullest tonal pitch and sustain. Generally both top and bottom heads will be at the same tension. I use a Drum-Dial for this, and usually wind up at around 75. When you have all your toms sounding their fullest and in good pitch with each other, go to step 2.Step#2. Drop an E-Ring on each drum, play each drum to focus on the characteristic of the sound. You'll notice a true deadning effect and also a big drop in tonal quallity...don't freak out!, this is where everyone goes wrong. This next step is a secret I'm about to bless all of you with, and I've got around 50 hrs perfecting it! Ok, the final step.Step#3.This step will separate the men from the boys! Now that all the E-Rings are in place, and your almost happy, start increasing the tension on the lug screws on the batter head only, about a 1/16th of a turn, and do so in a tuning sequence. Lightly tap the head with a stick and listen for the nice tonal quallity to come back. Keep tightening ever so gently until you hear your drum sound like a $10,000 drum that is miked and gated through a studio mixer!!! When using any kind of drum head muting device, remember this... anything touching a drumhead changes the harmonic frequency within the head itself, so you have to compensate by changing the tension to bring back the frequency desired, but at a muted level. The bottom line is this...YES, you DO have to tune your drums with the E-Rings on, but in proper sequence! Enjoy your E-Rings, Quallity Sound, and my secret.

      I got these when I replaced my stock heads. They make your drums sound great......if you're just practicing on your own. If you plan to record your drums, I would take them off. They make your drums sound too dead when you record them.If you have bad overtones or whatever, you should just use a little tape. But again, if you are just practicing, they are great.

        Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

        I'm mainly a keyboardist and I'm also the recording engineer for my band. I've been recording bands for almost 20 years, and a good drum recording I feel starts with a tight sound. We all know about pillows and blankets in kick drums. If you come across a drummer that is inexperienced at tuning, these will help reduce the ringing overtones on the toms. They don't replace proper tuning, but they do help, and on a well tuned kit, the sound is tight and punchy.

          Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

          I have been playing drums for 21 years and I am very particular about the sound of my drums. My current setup for the past few years has been a Gretsch Renown Maple. These rings, although simple in concept, drastically improve the sound of my drums. They make my desired tom sound easily-attainable. I know some people simply lay them down and never think about it again, but my approach is a bit different. I apply one, then seat them using one small MoonGel. This combination gives me the exact sound I am looking for. My tom sound if "fattened" quite a bit, they have excellent attack, but any unwanted overtones and/or "ring" are eliminated. Overall, an incredibly simple and cost-effective way to enhance your drum sound. Highly-recommended.

                      i have used these rings for many many years to control unmanageable overtones, fatten up my drum sounds, and control excess drum volumes that usually occur in small to very small venues...my favorite rock-a-billy drum set was recovered from the trash years ago. i pealed and redid the shells and flamed em' in hot orange with chartreuse flames...the bottom hoops were missing on all of the drums except the floor tom which i converted to a kick drum...the overall set tone without the rings was and is fairly nasty...but with the addition of the tone rings i get a very phat, full, even ...great sound....to my ears anyway..
                      .in the smaller venues using double rings i stick down and am able to play with as much intensity as i need without pissing bar patrons etc off..all in all i believe these would a great addition to any drummers arsenal, they afford me tonal control, and a nice clean full sound on a very marginal drum set...and they are very easy to use...unlike tape, washcloths, moleskin, moon gel etc....
                      i - like most drummers have a certain drum sound in my head that i seek to achieve...these rings bring that sound closer to my minds ear.....

                      I have used Evans E-Rings for many years, and STILL have my first set from 2006...Like I said before they can crease if you're not careful with their storage.
                      My extended pros list:
                      1. Came quickly, arrived in a box, inside being a undamaged sleeve bag with the Evans seal. Immediately after arrival I checked the fit, spot on. Always check the fit!

                      2. Provide a great dampening effect, and they have the potential to positively transform the sound of your Evans-equipped drums. For those looking for that certain tom sound, or even those who seek dampening for their snare >.>

                      3. Believe me, these things will last you a good while, if not mistreated..

                          all my heads, which did the job, but looked pretty cheesy. Put these on, apply a small amount of clear tape to keep them from going anywhere (if you want )

                            These things have been around for a while, but I tried them only recently. No more duct tape on the head, internal or external mufflers (except on snare). Big difference in quality of sound.
