      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.

        Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Bass Drum Head:

        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 bring out tones I didn't know my kicks had! I'm running 2 22x18 Pearl Vision 6 ply Birch kick drums and honestly they sound better to me now than some of the reference kick drums which are arguably the best kick shells ever made. I use the small foam ring and a Evans AF patch because I'm using Vater Percussion wood beaters. There is plenty of punch, low end but it's all well defined and not muddy. I'm sure some people will frown upon this, but I sometimes, depending on the environment add some click with triggers. I struggled with figuring out how to go about this with this particular head because the DDRUM pro triggers rest where the plastic ring of the eMad is glued to the head. Luckily I was able to get a hold of Evans, which by the way have some of the best customer support I've ever encountered, and we got it taken care of. All you have to do is very gently with a hobby knife cut a square out of the ring, slightly bigger than the triggers piezo element so it works correctly and then gaffer tape over the trigger to add stability to the foam ring which also has to be cut. He also a included a picture he got from a tech out on the road doing the same thing, I will include this if I can. All in all you can't go wrong with this head, so quite reading all these reviews and get kickin!

                        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.
