OVERVIEW

Heads that are warm, dense, focused, and with a clear attack in all tuning and dynamic ranges.

The Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead offers an edge control ring mounted under 2 plies of 7-mil film. The EC2 drumhead controls vibration instead of eliminating it. It also dampens higher overtones, enhances low-end attack, and supports a broader tuning range.

Evans EC2 Sound Shaping Technology (SST)

Evans improved EC2 drumheads contain Evans' exclusive Sound Shaping Technology (SST). Sound Shaping Technology allows the drumheads to be fully optimized for each individual size by varying the thickness and density of the damping material, ensuring greatly improved performance and tone across the entire kit. Unlike other heads that lack SST, Evans EC2s contain the ability to balance attack and tone for each size. The result is a drumhead series fine-tuned for attack, tone, length of sustain, and ease of tuning. Packed with a more balanced and pre-EQ'd sound across the full kit, the vans EC2 with SST will make your toms sound better than you ever thought possible.

Here is what the pros are saying:

"So I just gave the new EC2s a test run overseas. They sound great!! I used them on a Mapex Orion kit. The new muffling rings are nice! After pounding these for a few shows they stayed focused."
-Chris Pennie

"The new EC2s are so incredible! The attack and tone has somehow been magnified, when I'm playing these heads the feel, definition and tone that I'm able to draw out of them is amazing and is so sweet to the ear."
-Camille Grainer

"The new Evans EC2 SSTs are amazing. My toms sound so warm and lush. These drum heads bring out the true sound of the drums."
-Dean Butterworth

"The best just got better - the new EC2 SST drumheads are incredible!"
-Preston Heyman - The Wolfmen and U.K. Session Supremo

These heads were a major disappointment. High spots and low spots in the heads prevent them from being tensioned evenly, without adjacent lugs being loose. The problem is definitely in the heads, I ruled out the bearing edges and the rims by rotating the heads and rims 180 degrees, individually. The problems stayed in the same spots on the heads. This is after having them mounted for several days and allowed to stretch.I do not recommend buying these heads.

    Best Heads In The World!

    By Dave Rucki

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

    Overall, the Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drum Head is the best clear batter head on the market. It has great durability, fantastic tone, sounds great tuned really low, mid, or high, it tunes easily and looks great too. Buy this drum head, you will not be disappointed!
    The control ring on the head adds something special to these heads which control those funny overtones that you dont want. It also eliminates the need to put on a muffling ring or a moon gel.
    Everything about this drum head is fantastic; the design, the sound, the durability, the tuning range, and how easy it is to tune, it's all so incredible.
    Like I said, amazing.

    Excellent Heads!!

    By Matthew Thomas

    from Greenville, SC

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

    I love these drumheads...I had tried these type of heads when they had the silver "metal" rings inserted for control of overtones and wasn't entirely impressed so I switched back to my reliable clear G2's. I like to tune my toms higher than what many would consider for rock type playing because I like the sticking I do to really standout when playing the larger toms. So as previously stated I tried Attack 2-ply's; while they provided a controlled sound and accentuated lower frequencies, they just didn't have the durability. I then decided to give these heads another try and I am very glad I did; they give the control of overtones I would expect yet offer a very wide tuning range. My smallest tom, the 6 inch, has plenty of attack that one would expect from a drum that size while my largest tom, the 14 inch, has the bottom end I enjoy hearing yet any overtones are quickly controlled. I highly recommend giving these heads a shot.
    These heads control overtones and yet allow the drum not sound muted. These heads feature an ink ring that goes around the edge of the head as opposed to the "metal" ring that was used prior. By using ink to create the ring, this allows Evans to control the thickness of the ink depending on the size of the head. It also allows the ink to "stretch" with the head when tuned on the drum.
    These drumheads can take a pounding; I am a fairly hard hitter and these heads will withstand a great deal of punishment. I previously was using Attack 2-ply heads because I wanted to try something different. The Attack drumheads just didn't have the durability and within a few playing sessions, the plastic began showing wear and tear I would have expected from a drumhead after, quite frankly, several months of playing. These heads are definitely holding up against my percussive onslaught.
    Excellent value that you would expect from Evans.

    Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

    I've played Evans Heads for couple of years now. I tried the EC2 SSTs on my Sonor maple kit. All I can sat is these heads sing. I was a little worried about to much muffling but instead they project great. I've played about 5 gigs with them and they hardly show any wear. Once again Evans has come up with an awsome drumhead.

    Not really what I wanted

    By Kyle Connell

    from Nashville, TN

    Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

    I bought these heads thinking they would open up my sound. I normally play G2 Coated heads. Well, I got more attack with these, but they do kill all the over tones. The floor tom sounds great, but the side toms are so-so. If you want a muted sound these are great, but I like some over tones. I think I'm going to go back to the G2's.

    Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

    I have been using Pinstripes for 25+ years and really just took them for granted as the standard. Only recently I started demanding a bit more from my old cheapo Rockstar DX kit from 1992, and the Pinstripes weren't delivering. I needed more brightness and clarity and definition, despite the fact that their big power toms.

    Looking for a brighter sound, I actually tried the G12 but found it was too "barky" and dented way too easily, so after watching a few product reviews, I settled on the EC2 hoping at least that it would cut down on resonance a bit more than the Pinstripes. Wasn't happy about retaining a darker sounding head, but to me if I could improve definition, then that would be good enough.

    Construction is key: Because of how these heads are made, there is a bit less overhang on outside of the bearing edge than that of the pins (i.e. the opposite of what happens with a tympani head, and that equates to a slightly tighter sound and another unexpected benefit: better tuning (more on that later).

    So the goals I had set were met: more definition, better attack, and surprisingly, the heads are a bit brighter as well. Durability is excellent.

    As for the tuning aspect... because of how these are made, they are a bit harder to tune and are less forgiving than the pinstripes, and in turn, not as wide a tuning range, which may be why some people have complained about them. Simply put, if one tension rod is off, these heads will sound awful, with terrible overtones and zero projection. BUT... once you get all of the rods right... these heads absolutely sing and explode with rich sound and perfectly replicate the drum's fundamental tone and resonance. Pinstripes don't come close.

    Yes, they're hard to tune if you're not finicky or don't have a lot of experience with tuning... or if you have a damaged bearing (make sure your bearing edges are perfect). But that just means you have to apply yourself and learn how to do it.

    You will be rewarded!

      Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

      All I can say is wow.... I recently jumped off the Remo bandwagon, for several reasons. I just was growing tired of the sound I was getting and needed a change. The kicks didn't have the sound I was looking for in my head and neither did the snares. Toms were lackluster and so on. I've never heard a bad word against Evans, so when I decided to re head my expansive kit this time around I chose Evans. And man let me tell ya, I'm never going back! These heads are fantastic, and my setup is crazy enough I've got about all of the sizes.... I have 10,12,13 racks in front, 16,18 floor toms on the right and 14 floor tom on the left. The toms cut really well, plenty of attack and that wet sound we all love about clear heads but the ec2 ring really helps dial back the overtones to very pleasant levels. The floor toms are nice and fay with plenty of low end and punch. I've always struggled making my 18" floor tom more usable than a coffee table but this one is just effortless. I paired them with the G1 series for my resonate side
      By the way Evans, has some of the best customer support I've ever encountered. Treated me like a big name endorse during my brand transition, helping to choose what heads are right for me. All in all you can't go wrong with these heads, so quite reading all these reviews and get some for your kit!

      Excellent heads for rock or metal

      About Me Professional Musician

      Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

      I've been using Evans G2's for years and years thinking they were the best head. I was wrong, at least for my drumset. I still play a bass and tom setup from 1996 and these heads just made these toms sing like they were different drums. The controlled muffling is just the right amount to make my drums sing. YMMV. If you want a strong attack, a round tone, and need to eliminate overtones, these heads are the best. I love them for my personal application, which is hard rock with one band and fusion/mathrock/postrock with the other.

        Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

        The new Evans "360" style makes these heads very easy to tune. I use these heads for all the types of music I play. You can get a wide range of tones out of them.

        Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

        I initially bought an 18" head to accompany a floor tom that i purchased. when I got the head on and tuned and played it with my drums, I was amazed. this drum head truly delivers. Its not hard to tune, it has great tone, has good attack, but still sings with the natural tone of the drum without that infernal ringing. no need for moon gel, duck tape, or any means of muffling. the drum heads are the real deal. the rest of my toms were hydraulics. I love my hydraulics, but I wanted some more tone. they were muffling the tone of the drums too much, and not letting them express themselves enough. shortly after buying my first ec2 I replaced all my drum heads with them. including the resonant heads, and all I can saw is wow! These drum heads make your drums THUNDEROUS. The drums sing beautifully but retain there attack, tone, articulation, and dynamics. Evans did it again. I definitely recommend this drum head to anyone looking for the perfect tone for pretty much any musical setting. Good job Evans, you did it again.

          Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

          After trying the EC 2 clear batter heads on my toms, I feel compelled to share my satisfaction.
          I have tried most others: most all of remo's, aquarian's performance 2s, with dot and without, attack's and others, and they are also top quality, but Evans EC 2 clear heads are the most resonant and loud (some may want to mute them slightly), and satisfactory to my preferences. I am one happy player. Also, the Evans EC 2 coated are really awesome, the coating does mute them a little more than the clear ones so no extra muting, mylar rings, etc. is required, I think I like the clear EC 2s a little better, but both are the best I have tried. They work great on my 2001 Tama Rock Stars and my 2005 Yamaha Tour Customs. They seem to be pretty durable and long wearing too. Very pleased.

          What a surprise

          Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

          I've always been a Remo guy. Coated emps all the way. But my emps where getting worn out so i decided what the heck, why not try something new. When i first took these out the box and flicked them without putting them on the drum, they sounded completely dead. After putting them on the drum, they tuned up very easily and produced tone like drum heads are suppose to, but after i brought it to the kit and played, ehhh.... not for me. They sound very "plasticy". I'll probably never buy these heads again. Remo has my love.

          Not for me

          Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

          Tried these on my PDP Platinums that I sold recently when I got new DWs. Seasoned player of multiple genres. With the new Evans EC Reso as resonant heads, I might as well have been hitting a piece of vinyl, plastic or cardboard. With single ply resonant heads, just a little better...all attack. Maybe these are great with close-field or internal miking but they are not to be heard live. I realize some other raters obviously think they are great but they're not for me.

            I'm a drummer in a Hard Rock / Metal band and am using Evans Ec2's on all of my tom batters and Evans G1's on the resos. It's the perfect formula,I dont think I'll ever change things, because if something isn't broke,don't fix it!

                Evans makes awesome products and it shows with these. These heads are very easy to tune, have a very full and deeper tone, and almost no unwanted ringing. Perfect head in my opinion when paired with Evans G1's as resonants. I would recommend the clear SST's over the frosted.

                  Comments about Evans EC2 SST Clear Batter Drumhead:

                  Though I've only had these heads on my kit for a short time, the improvement in tone was immediate and very pleasing to my ears and I really enjoy the look and feel of these heads. I have owned Evans products in the past and they have always been considered my, "second favorite" brand, but I am enjoying the tone these heads give my toms so much I very likely will purchase these again in the future. These heads are listed as being for a Rock or Gospel type sound but honestly I feel they would fit well with any style of music. Once I had them on the drum they were very easy to tune and I had them ready to play in no time at all with very little stretching, (and I'm a guy who sometimes struggles with getting the tone I'm looking for). The have a nice clear attack and just the right amount of sustain to let the shell ring out in a pleasant way without sounding "wonky" at all. I know everyone has their own idea of how a head should sound, (muffled, open, etc) but I only have one moongel on each head, (split in half and placed a few inches from each side of my mics right on the lines by the rim for better control at the board) and this gives me a great tone that fits what I play perfectly, (Rock/Metal).
