The EMAD comes with 2 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.
In the past, 16” bass drums have been considered quite unconventional, often being made from an extra 16” floor tom with conversion kit hardware. In recent years, 16” bass drums have become more common in factory configurations. Kits such as the Ludwig “Breakbeat” have been met with overwhelming interest.
This drum head is made to fit on standard bass drum hoops. Evans 16” bass drum heads provide a variety of sonic and aesthetic options so you don’t need to sacrifice your tonal preferences with a smaller drum. Made in the USA
