See All Evans Individual Drum Heads
      OVERVIEW

      Heads that are warm, dense, focused, and with a clear attack in all tuning and dynamic ranges.

      The Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead offers an edge control ring mounted under 2 plies of 7-mil film. The EC2 drumhead controls vibration instead of eliminating it. It also dampens higher overtones, enhances low-end attack, and supports a broader tuning range.

      Evans EC2 Sound Shaping Technology (SST)

      Evans improved EC2 drumheads contain Evans' exclusive Sound Shaping Technology (SST). Sound Shaping Technology allows the drumheads to be fully optimized for each individual size by varying the thickness and density of the damping material, ensuring greatly improved performance and tone across the entire kit. Unlike other heads that lack SST, Evans EC2s contain the ability to balance attack and tone for each size. The result is a drumhead series fine-tuned for attack, tone, length of sustain, and ease of tuning. Packed with a more balanced and pre-EQ'd sound across the full kit, the vans EC2 with SST will make your toms sound better than you ever thought possible.

      Here is what the pros are saying:

      "So I just gave the new EC2s a test run overseas. They sound great!! I used them on a Mapex Orion kit. The new muffling rings are nice! After pounding these for a few shows they stayed focused."
      -Chris Pennie

      "The new EC2s are so incredible! The attack and tone has somehow been magnified, when I'm playing these heads the feel, definition and tone that I'm able to draw out of them is amazing and is so sweet to the ear."
      -Camille Grainer

      "The new Evans EC2 SSTs are amazing. My toms sound so warm and lush. These drum heads bring out the true sound of the drums."
      -Dean Butterworth

      "The best just got better - the new EC2 SST drumheads are incredible!"
      -Preston Heyman - The Wolfmen and U.K. Session Supremo

      It has been a year and these heads are still holding up, haven't had to tune them often as they are durable! With Evans G1's on the bottom they give off a nice deep sound with no overtones.

      I would recommend this product to all drummers who are looking for easy heads to tune and want a sound that is always perfect!

      Bought these heads 9/09 and placed them on my DW stutio kit. They sounded very good. About 6 weeks later the sound control ring on the 14 inch head started to deteriorate and flake off falling inside the tom. I called and emailed Evans and have not received any response. Evans is now owned by D'Addario and I guess they are just another giant company that does not give a crap. For an example of great customer service...I emailed DW about an air lift throne that was giving me troulbe and they actually called me that day, sent me a free UPS shipping label and replaced the throne. I also contacted Tama via phone regarding a older Iron Cobra pedal that was wobbling and they repaired it for free even though it was way out of warranty. Thats great customer service and the way it should be for us drummers. I spend thousands of dollars each year on drums and supplies because I am a professional musician, however Evans will not be on my X-mas list this year. Too bad cause these heads do sound very good.

                Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

                I've been using Evans G2's for years and years thinking they were the best head. I was wrong, at least for my drumset. I still play a bass and tom setup from 1996 and these heads just made these toms sing like they were different drums. The controlled muffling is just the right amount to make my drums sing. YMMV. If you want a strong attack, a round tone, and need to eliminate overtones, these heads are the best. I love them for my personal application, which is hard rock with one band and fusion/mathrock/postrock with the other.

                Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

                I found out about the new Level 360 technology and thought I might as well give it a go, because no drummer likes seating the drum head and having to wait for it to form to the shell and then re-tune
                and everything.

                I formerly (well, maybe not for long) used Remo pinstripes and bought the EC2's because they're 2 ply and have an outer ring for tone control, oh, and they're cheaper.

                I love everything about the EC2's except for the durability: I play my kit maybe 18 hours a week plus gigs once or twice a month, and these just don't hold up.

                I am a hard hitter, but not the "beat the life out of my drums" hard, and the 14" on my floor tom is already pitting, and I've only had the head on for 10 days and didn't even play everyday at that.

                I love the 360 technology (and kind of wish Remo would have done it already) but they need to be more durable.

                  I use EC2 SST drumheads on my rack toms and Evans Hydraulic heads on my floor toms. My snare uses an evans reverse dot. My Yamaha Recording Customs are very rich in tone with a deep foucused resonance. So I was loooking for heads that wouldn't reduce the tone quality but allow them to ring. Honestly, you could put these heads on any kit and make them sound like a high end kit.

                        I bought one of these for my 16" floor tom to bass drum conversion.

                        I tune it low and my coated, Remo ambassador resonant head high... and I'm getting a nice rock/jazz thump with some tone to it too instead of just a "cardboard box" sounding thud like my old 22" bass drum.

                        I'm really impressed and love the sound!

                          The new Evans "360" style makes these heads very easy to tune. I use these heads for all the types of music I play. You can get a wide range of tones out of them.

                                I initially bought an 18" head to accompany a floor tom that i purchased. when I got the head on and tuned and played it with my drums, I was amazed. this drum head truly delivers. Its not hard to tune, it has great tone, has good attack, but still sings with the natural tone of the drum without that infernal ringing. no need for moon gel, duck tape, or any means of muffling. the drum heads are the real deal. the rest of my toms were hydraulics. I love my hydraulics, but I wanted some more tone. they were muffling the tone of the drums too much, and not letting them express themselves enough. shortly after buying my first ec2 I replaced all my drum heads with them. including the resonant heads, and all I can saw is wow! These drum heads make your drums THUNDEROUS. The drums sing beautifully but retain there attack, tone, articulation, and dynamics. Evans did it again. I definitely recommend this drum head to anyone looking for the perfect tone for pretty much any musical setting. Good job Evans, you did it again.

                                    I have an EC2 head on each tom in my kit, and I plan to keep it that way. These heads are great for providing presence at live shows with a punchy and centered sound. I recommend getting the matching resonant head for the full effect.
