      I had always play Remo- exclusively. I took a chance and bought the EMAD system (batter and resonant) for my kick drum and I couldn't be happier. I use the wider of the two rings supplied with nothing else for dampening. I did not port the resonant head, although I think I might someday jst for fun. I play a 22"X20" maple shell kick and the EMAD plus the extra depth gives a sound that I've never been able to get to this point in 30+ years pf playing. Keep bass drums heads in perspective please- shell material. drum size, and the person on the throne account for 90% of the drum sound equation. Heads are the remaining 10%.
      Love the two provided foam rings. It's all you need to get be up and running in about 10 minutes. No more experimenting with duct tape, paper towels, and other junk.
      Evans, you've come a long way...
      All drum heads seem overpriced. This is no exception. Not horrible though

      I thought this head would solve my problems. I had an Evans EQ3, which I absolutely loved. The hole cracked from the microphone bumping the edge, and I eventually blew a hole threw the head. I thought the EMAD would be the way to go, but I was wrong. It is the same thickness as the EQ3, but it produces extra overtones, which I hate. I never had to throw a blanket in my bass drum, but now I do. In addition to that, the pads are horrible. I put them on properly, never tearing them, and they both ripped after one use. I'm not a heavy hitter by any means. I should have read the reviews before I bought this head. Save a few extra bucks and get the EQ3 if you are an Evans fan, because this one is not worth it.

                I'm a heavy hitter and like a wide open sound as well as a deep controlled sound. That is usually tough to achieve. Evans Emad systems have really made that possible. The addition of the resonant head to the Emad system is the last piece of the puzzle. I feel like I have total control now of the tone I get. Well
                Done Evans! Highly recommend!

                  I like Evens Heads. I needed a Resonant Head with a hole so i could mic the bass drum. Works great. The hole has a plastic ring around the hole for added support. I didn't notice much sound difference, maybe a little deeper. I'm going to get the Evens Batter Head soon. That's where i hope to hear a difference from the stock head.

                    Let me start by saying I have always had good luck with Evans products. This ported bass drum head simply did not fit the drum. It was so oversized, I could slip my finger between the rim and the shell. I sent if back. A second head came and had exactly the same "defect." Finally, after going through this twice, I asked if they would switch to another brand. I received a Aquarian resonant, ported head and it fits perfectly. I don't know if this was just a bad batch of heads, but I might be hesitant to order an Evans bass drum head again. I am curious if anyone else has had this experience.

                      This head with integrated microphone hole works extremely well. In the past, I had cut my own mic holes but the way Evans integrated the hole into this head is just perfect. The placement is right where it needs to be and the soft foam material around the opening provides a look and feel of quality far beyond what my heads looked like with DIY holes. Highly recommend this.

                        I put this head on my 18" bass drum and it sounds great and it makes a small bass drum sound much tighter and louder than most other heads. If youre going for a pro sound, this is what you need.
