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.

      Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

      I use the EMAD resonant head without anything in the bass drum. The mic port concentrates the sound beautifully for recording. I was previously alternating between no resonant head, & a Remo reso head with a 12" hole in the middle, with various towels or pillows in the drum. The EMAD makes a tremendous difference in the focused depth and power of the recording signal. Superb. Kudos!

      Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

      I love the Evans EMAD bassdrum heads. I used them on my 22" rock bass as well as my 18" jazz/acoustic bass, and I recommend them to all my drumming friends. Both drums sounds amazing with these heads. The EMAD system does a great job of providing just enough dampening without killing the tone. I've never had any quality issues with the foam. In fact, I sometimes use an extra foam ring on my 16" floor tom. Great product!

        Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

        Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head is a high quality drum head that is black, single ply, and has an internal plastic ring permanently attached around the collar to eliminate high overtones. The drum head also features a microphone port with a protector ring and foam insert. The port functions as an access point for sound engineers to properly place a microphone and the protector ring will prevent the head from tearing during the mic placement process. The removable foam insert comes preinstalled around the microphone port protector ring and functions to remove overtones near the mic. Evans patented level 360 collar design ensures that the head sits level on the bearing edge of the drum for easy tuning. This is an all around high quality product that sounds great with minimal effort.

          Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

          I played my Tama Swingstar with a 22 inch kick drum for many years. I had recently purchased a new Gretsch Catalina Club 4 drum kit that comes with the 18" kick drum instead of the 20". At first I was frustrated with the sound of this smaller kick drum so I did some research on suggestions for improvement. Went ahead and purchased the "Evans 360 Resonate drum head". After I installed it and tuned it up, the enhanced effort was nearly jaw dropping. I was very pleased with this product and recommend it to others that have an 18 inch kick drum that needs a little more punch !

            I got this resonant side last week after having the batter EMAD for a while and After putting on the batter side I noticed a big difference, but not half as big as when I put on the resonant side. This resonant head makes the bass drum have no ring at all (firm ring) and makes that thud/click sound that I wanted and sounds just awesome a++.

            Bought this head to replace a factory head and LOVE IT!!! Have been playing on it solid 4 days a week min. for the last 3 weeks and have had no problems. play a gretsch maple 6 ply and it toned down the overtones and gave me more volume. Actually had to back the master on the bass mic down quite a bit. So far so good versus other reviews. will see how it holds out.

            Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

            after owning it for about a month, the softer foam that goes in the port hole has torn and is useless. In live performances, it won't matter much but it looks sloppy as it flaps around. I don't even use the foam now as it still sounds great. I just feel like I wasted some hard earned cash on a product that doesn't last in its entirety.

            Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

            I recently purchased the EMAD resonant head in conjunction with the Evans EMAD batterhead and I couldn't be more pleased. My bass drum sounds very deep with no overtones; very pleasant and professional. I've always used REMO exclusively, but unless someone tips me off on something that trumps them, I'll be sticking with these! Sometimes experimentation pays dividends!
            Nice and effective. More thought put into this head than any other that I'm aware of.
            I have experienced no problems with quality.
            For the sound, the price is not a problem.

              Comments about Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Drum Head:

              The difference may be subtle but YOU will notice it. If not putting a mic on the kick, in a smaller room you'll get will have a much richer, warmer tone. If the kit is being mic'ed, you'll get a drier, less boomy sound, which can be a plus when playing rooms with lots of hard surfaces. The port will make it easier for the sound guy to control what he is putting out into the room, and make you sound better.
