Reviews around product (5.00 of 5)

  • Overall this is a very good product that delivers that umph that you might be looking for.
  • If you add an Evans EQ Nylon Patch to it, you'll have even more protection from the beaters, increasing the longevity of this already amazing product!
  • This is by far the best product you can buy especially at this price
  • It's a good product has a nice sound not the thump I was looking for but has a good deep tone.
  • I might put the outer ring that comes with it on it just to deaden the power of this great product

Reviews around punch (5.00 of 5)

  • I've always been looking for that sound that works well mic'd or with an acoustic band: a nice solid punch with a little bit of roundness to the sound
  • Excellent punch, deep tone both acoustically and miced (Shure Beta 91A, on a little rubber mat about 6" from batter head- nothing else inside the drum)

Reviews around response (5.00 of 5)

  • Every drummer likes their drums to "feel" right and straight out of the box the EMAD 2 has an amazing feel and response.
  • But, you get a good vibration, good response, short, powerful
  • easy to tune, stays in tune, and has great low end response
  • Awesome sound , once I got it tuned, not much response when trying to tune with tuning lugs loose, but when I tightened it up, it sounded like a canon!
  • He really likes the response to his double kick and the sound is definitely what he is looking for with his genre of music

Reviews around thump (5.00 of 5)

  • It's a good product has a nice sound not the thump I was looking for but has a good deep tone.
  • This head really projects well and gives a solid thump with rich harmonics
  • But this head gives a clear concise low thump thats exactly what I was looking for

Reviews around remo (5.00 of 5)

  • I personally prefer the Remo Powersonic which was the head I had on before the EMAD2
  • This "O" ring is used to hold one of two soft foam "O" ring that dampens the over tones.
  • But if you like Remo, stick with REMO.Good luck, hope it helps.

Reviews around drum head (4.50 of 5)

  • The Evans EMAD2 Clear Bass Drum Head offers a sound you simply can't achieve with most other drum heads, without, of course, putting pillow after pillow or blanket after blanket inside of your drum and ruining the sound
  • Wow this Drum Head really delivers, I used the thicker foam that was supplied with the skin for a deep and healthy tone from the Bass Drum
  • well worth the price, no doubt the best bass drum head out there
  • Wow, Buy this drum head, and also any other Evans heads for the rest of your toms
  • I thought the sound might improve as I broke it in, but it did not and still sounds like I have stuffed my bass drum full of pillows when it is empty

Reviews around kick (3.42 of 5)

  • What can i say... best product for kick drum dynamics control
  • The Evans EMAD2 is a great solution for making an inepensive little kick drum sound just as good as the other band's setup (much more expensive kit!).If you're having difficulty finding a nice fat kick sound give this drum head a try!
  • Can make even a crappy kick sound nice, tight & thumpy.
  • These heads give your kick a fat sound and I like the option of using different dampening rings.
  • I am in love with the elegant concept of achieving a good kick sound without stuffing anything inside of it
