The Evans EMAD2 bass drumhead is durable, attacking, and versatile – giving you control over the amount sustain and overtones, and providing a powerful deep thud.
A 2-ply drumhead, with one ply of 10mil and one ply of 7mil clear film, the Evans EMAD2 is extremely durable. 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 low-moderate sustain. Add the rings to remove overtones and reduce the sustain more towards the mid and deep low-end. With the thickest ring, the sound becomes very short, big, and punchy. The thicker 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. For maximum volume, use this head with no dampening ring or with the thinner ring.
