OVERVIEW

The EC Resonant tom head is the first bottom head to promote the natural tone and body of any tom by means of frequency "tweaking." The EC Resonant tom head is constructed from a single ply of 10 mil ultra-clear film augmented with the Evans EC ring. It attenuates unwanted overtones and centers pitch, while delivering a desirable mid-range frequency bump. It's the first head to have the capacity to control and correct the tuning inconsistencies of bottom heads, a long-standing roadblock to perfect tuning for many drummers. The result is a more resonant, fatter tom that projects a truer pitch, irrespective of volume levels.

Evans made a quantum leap with the EC Resonant. This head should stun drummers accustomed to attributing better tom sounds only to batter head selection. They'll be shocked to discover that their dream tom sound was laying in wait: the EC Resonant releases it.


Evans brings EC (Edge Control) technology to resonant heads.

Excellent quality as always with Evans. But...I've been playing a l-o-n-g time and realize that most everyone is recording everything all the time nowadays and miking the drums...but these along with my favorite G2 clear batter muddied the sound of the 18x14 floor tom on my DW set to the point it was almost subsonic (unheard) playing live unmiked with the rest of the toms having 1-ply clear resonant heads. Technology makes it so you can beat cardboard boxes and not know the difference with the drums in most current popular music so these would fit the bill especially with the popular combo of EC2 batters (IMHO).

        Comments about Evans EC Resonant Drumhead:

        These Evans resonant heads replaced Remo resonant heads on my Gretsch kit, and the sonic difference is substantial. The tone has pronounced weight and depth. I experimented with an Evans resonant head on my 13" snare, which produced an unusually thick, excessively dry snare sound that I might use every third or forth blue moon on a recording. There are terrific resonant heads. They deliver the goods from lower to higher pitched tunings. If you prefer an anemic pasteboard sound, don't buy these. Cheers.

Classic ",...with a " Fresh Pop "

                  I've never really considered my resonate snare head as being that important. This new head greatly reduced some un-wanted tones I was getting on my Yamaha snare. Should've replaced it long ago.

                  Comments about Evans EC Resonant Drumhead:

                  I was worried these might be overkill and choke out my drums, but they still leave a full rich sustain... they definitely help to tame down any weird overtones to a certain degree, but won't leave you totally dead sounding like a hydraulic head might. I would never put these on my more "focused-sounding" birch kit, but I have a set of Maple shell ludwigs that had a lot of ringing and weird overtones. G2's on top and these on the bottom gave a great mix. Just needed a bit of duck tape on the batters to get a great recording sound in the studio.

                  Set sounds and looks better

                  from In the U.S.

                  Comments about Evans EC Resonant Drumhead:

                  It took me awhile to get these tuned the way I like it, but the time was worth it. I had the resonant head too loose at first and was trying to adjust the batter (top) head. Once I tighted the resonant down a little more it made a world of difference. My 10" finally has that stand out tone I was looking for. Great combo with the EC2's. They just look good too.
                  Being a resonant head, it should last for the life of the kit.

                  This is the best resonant head on the market, it changes your tom sound from papery and thin, to focused and defined.
