            I took a chance on this and glad I did! What a thud I am getting from my kicks now. Plus two different size mute rings give me flexibility for any environment I am playing in.

              Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

              Always had the problem with bass drum heads sounding like a big boom. Even when coming close to the sound I wanted it was not good enough. I wanted to have that definitive click without loosing power like you hear in deathcore, metal, rock, etc. Every other head I tried was too boomy, but not this head. This one has the perfect sound! And it has built in dampeners, 2 different size, that you can put in or leave out for different situations.

              Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

              I play a lot of death metal (w/ double pedal), and other forms of heavy music, and I find that this is an amazing sounding head. When tuned well, it puts out a sound as good as any electric kit. And with the damper ring on the outside there is almost no need to fill the drum itself with insolation.

              Nothing Negative Here

              Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

              A valuable upgrade for anyone seeking to improve their Bass Drum sound and performance.
              It has a coating on the Head and a Damper Ring attached. You get 2 Foam Rings that go inside the Damper, so you get to customize your sound and attack! A deep thud or a lighter bop-it's all here.
              Very durable, well made.
              Very good value. You get your money's worth in my opinion.

              These drumheads are the best of all the heads that i used... the aquarian superkick III, the remo powerstrokes, brazilian RMV's, And local latin percusion's.. but, the evans don't need a muffling coat or something to kill the harmonics... only put the EMAD ring of your choise... and play!!!

              22", its punchy, it takes a beating and it lets all of the attack come off your beaters. throw a kevlar pad on and you'll have this head for years.

              Comments about Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Batter Drumhead:

              i really usually dont like evans heads at ALL! but my friend recommended this head so i got it, and man this head is so good! a huge FAT thump is what youll get out of this head. youll never need to put anything in your bass drum anymore if you use the big foam ring. this is the only head i will ever use from evans and it will probably be on my kit for a long time to come.

              Ok, so i just switched out my heads on all of my drums.. and i ordered this head and when i put tis head on i could tell a HUGE difference.. this head has amazing tone, amazing impact and punch and when you play your whole kit together this head just sounds so solid and so perfect.. I've never played a bass head that sounded this good. I highly recommend this for any drummer. THIS IS AWESOMMEEE!
