        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 :)

        Please allow me to rain on the EMAD's parade. I bought one....once. When it was new, it was everything it is billed as. Within a very short time, it started falling apart. The plastic/nylon ring that holds the felt muffle ring in place rapidly started cracking and coming off. I tried to remedy it's rapid failure with black vinyl tape to no success. Eventually, I had to discard the felt muffle ring and tear off the remaining plastic that once held the ring in place because it was buzzing so badly. All of the damage was only caused by the vibration of the drum head when played - no abnormal conditions. Total life span of the EMAD was less than a year. All of this and it was on a kick drum that is only used about twice per month for shows. For the money, it is a lousy buy. Do like I did, get a regular head, and get some foam weatherstip from the hardware store and use that to muffle your kick drum. It's cheaper and will last much, much longer...I mean really, how often should you have to replace a kick drum head?! Not as often as the manufacturer would like you to!

            Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Head:

            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.

                  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.

                    In 1976 I bought a Ludwig Black Vistalite Power Factory kit. I've been through a lot of drum heads on this kit. I now have the bass drum sound I've been looking for. Right out of the box my 24" bass drum now has the punch and power I've always wanted and I haven't even put it through the PA yet. I put the Emad batter and resonance heads on and man what a difference. I'm sold!!

                      If you want a thump sound, get an Aquarian, if you want a controlled sound, possibly add some lower end to your drum, decrease overtones, get this head. I still have a boomy sound, i personally do not like this, but I'm quite positive this is from the drum itself and resonant head. I have the 22 inch model, and I think its great. For me, it was between this and Remo's Powerstroke 3, I'm very satisfied with my choice.

                          This head instantly improved the sound of my kit. I haven't tried the heavier, thicker dampening ring, but the lighter one seems to work perfectly. No annoying overtones, plenty of attack and depth. A great value at this price for sure.

                              Comments about Evans EMAD 2 Clear Batter Head:

                              these heads are thee best bass drum heads period. i have yet to find any that are more durable or cost effective, they're functionality is spot on w/the control rings (no more pillows/blankets) people tell me i'm the heaviest player they know and my last head lasted 18 months.
