OVERVIEW

An undersized resonant kick head for a floor-kick tom conversion or a jazz kit kick drum.

For over 40 years, Evans has been a pioneer of drum head manufacturing and design. Known for innovative designs such as EMAD, EC2S, and the Hydraulic series, Evans drum heads are made in the USA in a state of the art manufacturing facility. Acquired in 1996 by DAddario and Company, the global leader in musical instrument accessories, the Evans brand is synonymous with quality and consistency.

Evans EQ3 resonant no-port series features a single ply of 10mil film with a 10mil internal overtone control ring. The series delivers a warm and punchy sound with a controlled, short decay popular for both players and engineers. This version features a tom hoop to accommodate metal flange counter hoops.

    Comments about Evans EQ3 Resonant Black Tom Drumhead for Floor Tom Conversion:

    Provides good dampening control on a 16 floor. I'm using it on a floor tom that I converted to a kick drum, but I could see it being good for reso side control when the tom is legged and played as intended.

        Comments about Evans EQ3 Resonant Black Tom Drumhead for Floor Tom Conversion:

        I have been using a 16" floor tom as my primary kick drum for about 10 years (progressive/funk/fusion). Up to now, I have used a Remo Ebony Emperor batter head and had moderate results (having to use more dampening inside the shell than I would like.)

        Enter the Evans EMAD bass drum batter and EQ3 reso heads specifically designed for use on 16" floor tom/kick drum conversions. This combination results in the perfect sound I have been looking for. With the smaller of the 2 dampening rings on the EMAD batter, I am able to get just the right tone and resonance with no additional muffling inside the shell. Tight attack and full of dark tone. The interchangeable exterior muffle rings give you options to tweek the overall sound as you like.

        A word about the Evans Level 360 head design: It is probably the single most significant change to drumhead design since the use of synthetic materials. Particularly with bass drum heads, I have always had to tune them higher than I liked just to get the wrinkles out. With the Level 360 heads, it is already wrinkle-free by virtue of sitting perfectly flat on the bearing edge. This allows tuning the head lose while still able to produce a good full tone.

            Comments about Evans EQ3 Resonant Black Tom Drumhead for Floor Tom Conversion:

            Perfect balance of attack and resonance. With excellent head seating, I can tune the drum very easily. I can tune it low enough that my 16" bass drum sounded much bigger than it looks. Wonderful!
