      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 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.

      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:

        All I can say is wow.... I recently jumped off the Remo bandwagon, for several reasons. I just was growing tired of the sound I was getting and needed a change. The kicks didn't have the sound I was looking for in my head and neither did the snares. Toms were lackluster and so on. I've never heard a bad word against Evans, so when I decided to re head my expansive kit this time around I chose Evans. And man let me tell ya, I'm never going back! These heads are fantastic, and my setup is crazy enough I've got about all of the sizes.... I have 10,12,13 racks in front, 16,18 floor toms on the right and 14 floor tom on the left. The toms cut really well, plenty of attack and that wet sound we all love about clear heads but the ec2 ring really helps dial back the overtones to very pleasant levels. The floor toms are nice and fay with plenty of low end and punch. I've always struggled making my 18" floor tom more usable than a coffee table but this one is just effortless. I paired them with the G1 series for my resonate side
        By the way Evans, has some of the best customer support I've ever encountered. Treated me like a big name endorse during my brand transition, helping to choose what heads are right for me. All in all you can't go wrong with these heads, so quite reading all these reviews and get some for your kit!

                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.
