      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:

        this was a great product and i love how it makes you bass drum feel more durable. this thing is pretty much a second ply for a bass drum!!! now, the clear one says that it does not change sound. i think it does just a bit, but i actualy like the sound better than when it is off. it adds more of a low end *tick* you dont get with coated heads. BUY THIS PRODUCT!! its worth your time and money!

            Just opened the package to examine the product. Taping a layer of Saran Wrap on the kick drum head would provide more protection than what Evans is offering by this product! Thin isn't the word. Cheap.. Cheap... CHEAP!

                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.
