The Evans EMAD Heavyweight clear bass drumhead is extremely durable and quite versatile – giving you control over the sound and providing a powerful deep thud.
A very thick drumhead, with two plies of 10mil clear film, the Evans EMAD Heavyweight is extremely durable and is built for long-term heavy hitting. This drumhead comes with two different acoustic foam dampening rings (one thin and one thick), which can be quickly mounted to the front of the drumhead – allowing great control without needing to remove the head. Even without the dampening rings, the EMAD Heavyweight gives a shorter sustain due to the thick construction. Add the rings to remove overtones and reduce the sustain even more, creating a deep sound with very focused mid-range and low-end frequencies. With the thickest ring, the sound becomes very short and punchy. The extremely thick construction means this drumhead can handle very heavy playing, and is capable of creating a big cutting attack that will come through in the loudest environments. Use this head with no dampening ring for maximum volume, or use a microphone with the dampening rings for a thick, deep, and short punch.
