Browse the full range of Evans Emad bass drum heads at Drum Central. All sizes available.

Part of the D'Addario percussion line, Evans provide an extensive range of the highest quality drum heads for snare, bass drum, toms, timpani, marching snare, congas, bongos and timbale. Famed for their efficiency and durability in a live setting, as well as their sound quality and tonal response in a studio setting, they are one of the leading brands of drum heads amongst drummers today.

Evans have been innovating in the drum world for over 60 years and were the first company to offer synthetic (non animal skin) heads to drummers. These days they pin their reputation on their Level 360 technology which they claim offers the best connection with the bearing edge of any drum head and consequently the most consistent tuning.

Evans™ EMAD™ is a single ply of 10mil film providing an ideal balance of punch, power and low-end. But it is the Externally Mounted Adjustable Damping (EMAD) system that sets it apart from other bass drum heads. This adds a foam dampening ring to the outside of the head to focus the sound and control sustain and overtones. The player can even adjust attack and focus without removing the drumhead. Simply by changing the size of dampening ring.

This is the go to bass drum head for all of the Drum Central staff and we recommend it to anyone who is willing to listen to us.
