Summary: This is by far the best bass drum head I have ever heard. The option of foam rings that is included is really outstanding. There is a definite difference between the small foam ring, the large one, and none at all. The head itself has a deep tone to it that lasts for the perfect amount of time and no matter how fast your pedals are going, you can distinctly hear each note.
Summary: I'm currently using this head on a 22" Gretsch Catalina Maple bass drum with the stock resonant head. There's nothing inside the drum at all, no tape or anything else on either head inside or out...not so much as a sticker...and my kick sounds phenominal. The head comes with two foam dampening rings that can be changed out in about a minute. Using these rings (or not using them) changes the amount of sustain you will get from your drum.
Summary: I play on a church band, playing mostly Hillsong/Passion music. I've been toying around with different heads and dampening methods for my kit, but the kick drum by far has been the most difficult to tinker with. With traditional heads, I tried several schemes with commercial dampening gear and also by taping things (a small towel, foam, even diapers) to the inside of my kick batter head -- which sort of did the trick, but the sound was still lacking.
Summary: WAW......This drum head sounds amazing!!!! Virtually no tuning needed. I just took it out of the box, tighten the lugs by hand to remove wrinkles and that was it. The REMO Powerstroke 3 that i had before doesn't even come close. Incredibly punchy low end attack.
Summary: This 2ply drum head comes with two pieces of foam giving you two choices of muffling. The small piece gives you a boomy sound with less attack. The big piece gives you more attack and less boom. The foam fits into a plastic flap that runs the diameter of your drum. I also added the emad resonant head. It also has a small foam rubber ring round the vent hole.
Summary: Since I am an old lady, I can't properly review this drumhead. I bought it for my daughter's boyfriend who plays in a very heavy metal band. However, I am pleased to announce that he is very happy with it. He really likes the response to his double kick and the sound is definitely what he is looking for with his genre of music. We added a kickport to the bass and he's in heaven.
Summary: Great Bass Drums head, fitted today, sounds so tight! I have to add that it doesn't mention anywhere that it comes with x2 EQ bands, one pre-installed, make sure you only fit one at a time... An Evans winner!
Summary: I live in Sweden and ordered this item. It would not take long to get it but on the date it was supposed to be delivered i got a mail were it stood that the ordered had been returned.. For no reason. So I do not understand what happened there. I got my money back and bought the skin in a local store.
