Effective Solution To Replace Blankets and Pillows
Brian Fantana, 08.03.2019
For years I have had pillows and blankets stuffed into my bass drum as a means of muffling and dampening the resonance of the drum as I have always preferred the sound of a quick, short attack on the bass drum. Although I liked the dampening these provided, they did prove to be a bit unsightly when using clear skins.

I opted to try this product as a more compact solution and was pleasantly surprised by its quality. The pad has two sides that are designed to rest against the batter head just under where the beater sits. Each offers different amounts of sound dampening so can be easily configured to get the exact sound you are looking for. I tested both, before settling on the smaller, less dampening side. The material it is made of feels of good quality. Attached to the pad are velcro patches that can be stuck to the inside of the drum shell for a quick and stable installation.

Overall I found it be a quick and effective to use product with clear and immediate results. Highly recommended!

Evans EQ bass drum mute
Dave1138, 17.06.2014
So long, and fare thee well pillows and old bedsheets! As soon as I set this up, and tuned the bass drum, I knew I had finally found my perfect tone.
Who would have thought something so simple, would make such a huge difference to the overall tone, and dynamic of the bass drum sound.
It adds just the right amount of dampening, and takes out those horrible high ends from a tighter tuned bass drum, and accentuates the attack, and dynamic of the lower tunings.
A must have for every drummer. An amazing bit of gear, for a fantastic price.
You won't be disappointed!

Terrible quality product
17.06.2016
What a shame! Shame on Evans for putting their name to this! I was astonished how poor the quality was when pulling this out of the box. It is very thin with hardly any padding and the material used is really cheap. The Evans logo is a cheap vinyl print-on instead of a sewn-on rubberised badge. The stitching of the pad is also very poor and I could have done a better job myself with a sewing machine and that is saying something! There are no velco strips stitched to the top of the pad either (only the under side) so any layering of additional pads would be fiddly. You could 'stick' another EQ Pad on top but after time, this would lift off. Especially as the pads' material surface is wide-pore fabric.

I have a couple of the older design Evans EQ Pads and they are OK. So having read this new one is a little wider so giving a little extra spread on the bass drum surface, I thought it would be great. Not so! I would imagine this would have cost no more than a few cents to make in a Chinese factory and it shows. Terrible quality product and I advise you to look at something else for your drum dampening needs. To sum this product up - Avoid!

Two for best effect
David9361, 09.05.2016
The mute does what it says in spite of the lightness of it. It is well enough made and surprisingly light in it's construction.

However for my particular taste I needed to buy two pads in order to get both heads sounding like I want them to. My bass drum is a 24"x18" in case that's relevant to someone.
