      I absolutely love the new Evans EMAD 2 clear drum head, I have a 24" Tama Silverstar birch bass drum, and this head with the included dampining rings have givin my bass such a great sound, also in combination with the Evans EMAD black resonate head, that I have absolutely no internal dampening in my bass drum what so ever! Sounds great acousticlly, miced live, and in the studio. Great sounding and durable product :)

      I was in the market for a new batter skin for my kick drum and saw this puppy. I replaced it with a Remo and noticed the Remo was thicker than this skin. Also I compared sounds from the two and the Remo had more of a thicker sound and very little sustain. Also the ring of the skin fit nicely around the shell and the mount to tighten the skin was nicely fitted. This skin will sound good if properly tuned and has a longer sustain, even with the thickest padding offered. It was a bit of a hassle to put the rings on the skin. I have a 20 inch ddrum and the ring of the skin didn't fit nicely around the drum and when tightening I had to force the ring to place as I tighten to have it evenly flushed to tune it correctly. Overall a good skin but when I need another batter skin for my kick I'll look elsewhere. Now the sound, as I mention if tuned properly it sounds nice. Good attack reasonable sustain and mic'ed up on a concert sounds nice with all the elements working together. If you like tone and sustain on your drums this is for you, if you like more of a "thud" type sound, look elsewhere. I'm sticking to Remo or try the other brands. One more thing... this looks like an average skin but with a pocket glued to it to add the padding.

            Great product. Evans is one of the top players in the game so you know the quality is there. The external muffling makes things easier. Don't hesitate if your thinking about this drum head. I put it on my practice kit, a lower line sonor, and it made a world of difference in the sound.

                  Why it's taken me so long to buy one of these I'll never know! So easy to set up and tune and the dampening ring (choice of 2)makes such a big difference to the sound. The head lets you get that extra projection and is so easy to mike up. Fantastic.

                      Although I'm a new drummer, I can tell you that this is the head you want to buy if you're looking for a durable, inexpensive, and great sounding head. I primarily play metal, rock, hard rock and this head fits the music soooo well. You know those awesome sounding bass drums you hear in most metal music? This is spot on! I am probably one of the worst people at tuning drums but this head was NO problem what so ever, I winged it (making sure all the tension was even) and tried it out and was immediately impressed. If you are looking for a nice drum head for hard rock/metal this is the head for you!

                        Been using the Emad system for about 8 yrs. Use Onyx on two of my kits and began with the original. Find the Emad 2 to be easy to use and versatile. Took all of 5 mins. to dial it in. By changing beaters or standard patch to Kevlar patches.You Can easily cover warm softer tones to biting quick foot work of Metal and Hard Rock. Like I said ..Idiot proof.

                        The Evans EMAD 2 is amazing. It pairs up awesome with the Evans EC2 Clear heads for the toms. I use the larger dampening ring in the EMAD it realy gives it a great low end punch. Throw away the pillow. This is by far the best bass head I have ever played.

                            Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

                            There is just none other than the Evans EMAD 2 ... as a professional studio musician, the integrity, resilience, and tonal quality of this head--nevermind it's near-perfect attenuation, requiring very little (if any) internal dampening--leaves no other choice among other kick heads on the market. You will NOT be disappointed.
