Used the clear model for a little over 4 months on an Evans emad. I use the plastic side of the beater, have somewhat of a heavy foot and I tend to dig in to the head, I dont expect patches to last for ever. This didn't look impressive at first but I cleaned the head applied it and had no problems with it staying on. The feel of this patch I loved and it improved attack on my kick. I used to use power centers from old heads that I cut into squares as patches but they affected the feel of the head and attack was minimal. After 4 months I inspected the patch and it was about to wear through, but the way I play I don't consider that bad. I was able to peel the patch off reclean the head and reposition it to hit a different spot and expect to get another 4 months easily before I have to use the second patch. (i'm also cheap) If you use a felt beater or don't dig into the head it should last considerably longer I would think. This felt the most like playing on a naked head with out ruining your head.

Not sure how drummers are breaking this thing in a few weeks, or what was different in my patch than other reviews, but my black patch was a good quality woven nylon looking thing, not the plastic as it is described here. maybe the clear patches are just the plastic ones *shrug* My patch has protected my head for months now and I'm a heavy metal hitter. What makes this patch a terrible buy is the adhesive, my beaters get pretty warm by the end of my sets, and the patches over time just fall off. Then of course the head is ruined because the adhesive is still stuck to the head, not the patch, and affixing another patch is a waste of time because it too will fall and much sooner than the last one.

    Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

    I've had this patch on my Remo Powerstroke 3 for I want to say it's been almost 4 YEARS and has gone through a couple dozen gigs and countless practice sessions. I seriously did not think this would last even close to that long.

            Used this patch for about six months on an EMAD before the head split. I was using a wood beater, but I am in no way a heavy hitter, so I expect a patch to last longer than this. I've switched to an EMAD 2 and a Remo Falam Slam patch. I haven't used the EMAD 2 before, but I've never seen a Falam Slam patch split.

            They sent me the wrong color. And I think the CLEAR ones are of different stronger material.

                  Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

                  These are GREAT! I have had them on my Evans Hydrolic head for over 3 YEARS and not ONE dimple (and I am a HARD & HEAVY kicker). Won't mess with the sound or feel of the head and absolutely prolongs the life of it. If you don't have one....GET ONE!!!!!!!! (actually, you're getting two. lol)

                  EQ Double Bass Badge - not good with mesh heads

                  By 

                  from Arvada, Co.

                  Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

                  I bought this to apply to an expensive mesh head, but it only stuck for about 30 seconds then flew off. I was told it would work on mesh heads but to no avail. I think it would be fine on a standard acoustic mylar/plastic head, but don't get this if you plan to apply it to a mesh head.

                  Comments about Evans EQ Double Bass Drum Patch:

                  great for the price and definitely saved my electronic bass drum. the rubber was starting to mess up from playing so much and this totally solves that.
                  sticks great with no problems even on my electronic drums it sticks great.
                  definitely made out of a tough material.
                  comes with two durable double bass patches just in case. they probably won't wear out any time soon.
