My 3rd one of these now. Only bass head I’ll ever use
I like the Evans EMAD head very much. However, for some reason, which no one has yet explained, the 16 inch head is approximately 2 mm greater in diameter than the other heads, also from Evans, which I have had on this bass drum shell. The larger diameter causes problems in seating it correctly on the shell. I'm having to have the bass drum hoop modified to accommodate this. Apart from that. I like it
Make sure you know which head to get. There is a Tom Hoop version of this head, so be aware when purchasing for a converted floor Tom. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong one but I was able to return this with ease.
Just perfect recommend 1000%
