The Evans EMAD bass drumhead is punchy and extremely versatile – giving you great control over the amount sustain and overtones, and providing a nice deep thud.
Made with a single ply of 10mil coated film, the Evans EMAD coated has good responsiveness and sustain. This drumhead also comes with two different acoustic foam dampening rings (one narrow and one wide), which can be quickly mounted to the front of the drumhead – allowing great control without needing to remove the head. Without the dampening rings, the EMAD gives a nice longer sustain. Add the rings to remove overtones and focus the sustain more towards the mid and deep low-end. With the thickest ring, the sound becomes very short, deep, and punchy.
The coated version has a more subtle attack and a warmer tone than the clear EMAD, great for moderate volume playing.
