      Evans

      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

        I love these drumheads...I had tried these type of heads when they had the silver "metal" rings inserted for control of overtones and wasn't entirely impressed so I switched back to my reliable clear G2's. I like to tune my toms higher than what many would consider for rock type playing because I like the sticking I do to really standout when playing the larger toms. So as previously stated I tried Attack 2-ply's; while they provided a controlled sound and accentuated lower frequencies, they just didn't have the durability. I then decided to give these heads another try and I am very glad I did; they give the control of overtones I would expect yet offer a very wide tuning range. My smallest tom, the 6 inch, has plenty of attack that one would expect from a drum that size while my largest tom, the 14 inch, has the bottom end I enjoy hearing yet any overtones are quickly controlled. I highly recommend giving these heads a shot.
        These heads control overtones and yet allow the drum not sound muted. These heads feature an ink ring that goes around the edge of the head as opposed to the "metal" ring that was used prior. By using ink to create the ring, this allows Evans to control the thickness of the ink depending on the size of the head. It also allows the ink to "stretch" with the head when tuned on the drum.
        These drumheads can take a pounding; I am a fairly hard hitter and these heads will withstand a great deal of punishment. I previously was using Attack 2-ply heads because I wanted to try something different. The Attack drumheads just didn't have the durability and within a few playing sessions, the plastic began showing wear and tear I would have expected from a drumhead after, quite frankly, several months of playing. These heads are definitely holding up against my percussive onslaught.
        Excellent value that you would expect from Evans.

        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.

            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!

                    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.

                          I have had these heads for about half a year and they sound great BUT! they muffling on the side falls off. It gets pretty messy and its not fun to clean out of your head. I suggest the G2 clear batter head.

                            These are wonderfully durable heads with a great sound for loud/projection music. They fit their description of being very defined and punchy with short sustain. I will continue to use them on my toms.

                            Overall, fantastic heads. No muffling required. Even my snare's vibrate less now, because of the controlled sustain. I'll only use EC2 SST tom heads from now on. Get your own, you won't be disappointed!
                            These heads have more attack than the coated G2's I was using before. Which is better for the music that I play.
                            High quality all the way.
                            There a little expensive, but well worn it.

                            I love these drumheads...I had tried these type of heads when they had the silver "metal" rings inserted for control of overtones and wasn't entirely impressed so I switched back to my reliable clear G2's. I like to tune my toms higher than what many would consider for rock type playing because I like the sticking I do to really standout when playing the larger toms. So as previously stated I tried Attack 2-ply's; while they provided a controlled sound and accentuated lower frequencies, they just didn't have the durability. I then decided to give these heads another try and I am very glad I did; they give the control of overtones I would expect yet offer a very wide tuning range. My smallest tom, the 6 inch, has plenty of attack that one would expect from a drum that size while my largest tom, the 14 inch, has the bottom end I enjoy hearing yet any overtones are quickly controlled. I highly recommend giving these heads a shot.
                            These heads control overtones and yet allow the drum not sound muted. These heads feature an ink ring that goes around the edge of the head as opposed to the "metal" ring that was used prior. By using ink to create the ring, this allows Evans to control the thickness of the ink depending on the size of the head. It also allows the ink to "stretch" with the head when tuned on the drum.
                            These drumheads can take a pounding; I am a fairly hard hitter and these heads will withstand a great deal of punishment. I previously was using Attack 2-ply heads because I wanted to try something different. The Attack drumheads just didn't have the durability and within a few playing sessions, the plastic began showing wear and tear I would have expected from a drumhead after, quite frankly, several months of playing. These heads are definitely holding up against my percussive onslaught.
                            Excellent value that you would expect from Evans.
