Product Description

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.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Evans products.

- Thickness: Single Ply (10 mil)
- Sound: Aggressive attack, moderately or extremely focused (player's choice)
- Resonance: Warm, tremendous low end
- Application: General use, all applications

5 out of 5 (23 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"SOLID, DURABLE HEAD! GET IT! GET IT! GET IT!!! URRRRRGH!!! :p"
Sound: This thing blew my expectations out of the water! The sound is a great improvement from my old head. It is a solid, punchy, and boomy attack. It is very loud, and the best part is, no need for a pillow, or towels, or sleeping bags, or anything. If you want a solid, punchy, and boomy attack, buy this outrageously under-priced head, and stick it on your bass drum. Rock On!!! Feature: Features are excellent. There are 2 dampening rings, and a flap on the top to stick them in. The dampening rings differ in size, and both have different effects on the dynamics, sound, volume level, and pedal response. Again, no pillows, blankets, or internal muffling. Also, mine(I bought it at a local store) came with an Evans EQ patch. Goody-Goody Gumdrops! :) Quality: This product is what the drummer ordered, and has high quality. It will probably last me years. Short, but sweet. Value: This is one of the most inexpensive bass heads. I could get a head half as good from remo for a much higher price. Simply put, it is cheap. Manufacturer Support: Not much here. The Wow Factor: I have been wanting this for years, and I finally got it tonight. I was itching to put it on my bass drum, and I was satisfied. Finally, I can play in satisfaction. Yeah!!! Overall: So, if you buy this head, you have made a good choice. You will love it, and you get like 14 Evans Players Points for it. Just buy it if you don't like the bass sound, and you will not regret it.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
