      OVERVIEW

      The Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead features a warm, controlled sound with a dynamic tuning range. The 6 drumhead has 2 plies of 7-mm film, an Edge Control Ring, and Sound Shaping Technology.Edge Control Ring Instead of entirely erasing edge vibrations, the Edge Control Ring controls them. It dampens high overtones and contributes to the drum™s overall attack. As a result, low frequency tones are enhanced for a warm, desired sound.Sound Shaping Technology The drumheads in this series are carefully designed with the sound of the entire drum set in mind. They can vary in overall thickness and in the density of the dampening material. Optimized for each drum size, the Sound Shaping Technology promotes a balanced sound and attack for each individual drum and for the blended sound of the whole set. Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumheads are endorsed by many professional drummers including Chris Pennie, Dean Butterworth, Camille Grainer, and Preston Heyman.

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

      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!

      These heads were a major disappointment. High spots and low spots in the heads prevent them from being tensioned evenly, without adjacent lugs being loose. The problem is definitely in the heads, I ruled out the bearing edges and the rims by rotating the heads and rims 180 degrees, individually. The problems stayed in the same spots on the heads. This is after having them mounted for several days and allowed to stretch.I do not recommend buying these heads.

            Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

            Evans set out to develop the perfect head with the SST series; the perfect amount of sustain, attack, punch, depth and warmth. In some ways they succeeded but there is a drawback in that you have to tune them just right. If they are tuned too low the head will not rest on the drum properly (it will flap) and if it tuned too high it sounds a bit chocked. The bottom line is that even tuning to the sweet spot they still flap, but when they work they sound amazing.

                      For me, without a doubt, my favorite drum head. love the low end attack, especially on my 16" Floor Toms. I have put ec2s on all five of my kits, and the sound and response on all the toms are second to none, no overtones and the tuning is effortless.

                          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.
