All one can wish for from a drum head
I use the EMAD2 mainly for recording the bass drum in my studio but occasionally also for live shows and the results are fantastic - the sound is powerful and punchy with lots of meaty low end and great attack. I have used it on different genres - rock, punk rock, folk, hip-hop - having tried many bass drum heads before, the Evans EMAD2 has become my go-to product. The included muffling rings provide great versatility for shaping the tone. The head has proven to be very durable and retains its tone for a long time. I highly recommend this bass drum head, great value for money. It has not let me down once - just recently ordered two more to add to the studio drum head shelf.
