Featuring the internationally award-winning EMAD (Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping) system, the Evans EMAD Bass Drum Heads are unique drum heads perfect for any drummer!
Evans EMAD Clear bass drum head.
The 10-mil, 1 ply Evans EMAD Clear Bass Drum Head comes with two dampening rings, each of which affects the head's sound and pedal response. This external system not only maximizes natural attack characteristics and offers tremendous dynamic range (even at low dynamic levels where other damping systems fall short), it also allows quick, easy adjustments, without having to remove the head from the drum. This unique feature is extremely valuable, especially during recording sessions.
The Evans EMAD2 is a two-ply version of the popular original.
The combination of a 7mil outer ply and 10mil inner ply offer extreme durability,while the two interchangeable damping rings allow the player to adjust sustain and feel. Together, they offer control, low-end, and articulation.
Evans EMAD Onyx Bass drum head.
Utilizing a single ply of 10-mil black film, the Evans EMAD Onyx Bass Drum Head is a unique drum head that packs a punch! A micro-clear coat that produces an extra dark sound while delivering additional punch.
Evans EMAD Resonant Bass drum head.
The Evans EMAD Resonant Bass Head allows drummers to toggle between three different levels of attack and sustain. It utilizes a 7-mil, single ply head with a fixed internal ring. The head features two interchangeable foam rings that dampen overtones around the edge of the 5 inch offset port, focusing the pitch and enhancing attack. The port is positioned higher up on the head for easier microphone placement.
The firmer of the two foam rings (darker color) delivers enhanced attack, controlled sustain, and focused low-end for a quick, articulate thump. The softer foam ring (lighter color) allows for a more round tone and moderately controlled sustain especially useful for smaller drums and high tuning. Together, the EMAD batter and resonant heads complete a system that gives drummers the adjustability, low-end, attack, and focus they dream about.
