Evans 22" EMAD Heavyweight Bass Drum

Bass Drum Head

  • Size: 22"
  • Double-ply
  • EMAD Heavyweight drumheads consist of two layers of robust films (2 x 0.25 mm)
  • This ensure a pronounced bass response and increased attack, as well as a maximum durability for particularly powerful plying
  • With the two damping rings (included) of different sizes (2 cm + 4 cm), the sustain and tonal response can be changed in just a few steps

Loads of punch and attack

Holger6854, 26.06.2015
When I bought my second hand kit it came with Evens EQ3 fitted on the kick drum and had a massive sound even though the drum head looked pretty battered from the previous owner. At least the guys i sometimes play with kept saying that they feel my kicks in their chests (in a small room and no amplification on the drums). Then i noticed a rip in the outer ply underneath the patch where the beater hits and so it was time for a new one. For the reason to get one that lasts me as long as possible i went for the Evans EMAD Heavyweight risking some loss of sound in exchange of punch.
After fitting the the new head the tuning was easy. I went for the lowest possible pitch without wrinkles as it suits most of the music i like playing (Rock) and used the tinner of the two dampening rings it comes with. The punch now is massive again and the attack is huge. Where the old one had a big "Plop"-sound to it with the new one it sounds as if a "F" has been added to make it "PFlop". It sounds just great. I only practise with headphones on for ear protection and thus its more the feel in my body than an actual tone. Sure it wouldn't suit for Jazz and softer styles but if Rock is the main music played then it is a good choice. Now i just have to find out how long it will last me because that was my main concern to get the Heavyweight in the first place.
It arrived in perfect condition and including a single EQ protection patch, which should be added in the product discription as i bought this seperately and now with a single pedal is a leftover. So for double pedal players an additional patch needs to be bought if not a double patch.
All in all a great product and the dampening system works just perfect, in my case with some muffling inside the kick drum with access through a hole in the reso-head for more fine tuning.

It didn't fit my 80s Pearl BD. (See Update)

Martin9392, 08.09.2016
I have an old 1980s Pearl Export kit, all very standard but strangely the claws for the bass drum head have like a "dew-claw" at the back which doesn't do much but makes sure the head and hoop are in contact with each other even if the head is loose. The problem is: This head doesn't fit the bass drum/hoops with these claws. You can get about 80% on but no matter if you try starting on one side or opposite pairs by the time you get 2 left there is a cm gap between the hoop and the rim of the head. No amount of forcing will get it to go on.Even with 2 of us forcing it together and one sitting on the bass drum hoop.

By this time the tuning bolts were starting to bend out of shape.

UPDATE: I had to order a set of Stagg Claws as the fault is really with the Pearl Bass drum...

So with the new claws I was finally able to fit the Evans. There are 2 foam ring dampeners that fit the external collar. The small one had enough dampening to give a good solid thud. Unless I wanted a 1970s disco thud I can't see that I would use the thicker dampener.

Glad I was able to fit it as it is a great sound. Hopefully won't have to change it now for another 30 years LOL!
