Let me start by saying that I was a staunch Remo user for as many years as I can remember playing the drums. Some time ago, I finally drank the Evans kool-aid to see what all the fuss was about. The ideas surrounding the Level 360 concept intrigued me, and frankly I was getting a little bored with Remo.
This Evans EQ4 is basically their version of Remo's Powerstroke 3. Every bit as good, in fact. It has a killer sound, it tuned up very easily, and has terrific low end. And due to the consistency in the collar, I was able to get this tuned way down in the nether region without so much as a wrinkle anywhere around the parameter of the head. While Remo includes a Falam (kevlar) slam patch with the Powerstroke 3, the Evans EQ4 came with a clear plastic (and somewhat thin) reinforcement patch that probably won't cut it for most players, especially if you use a hard beater. To that end, you will have to plunk down for Evans' more robust AF (or aramid fibre) patch. Not a deal breaker, but it would be wise of them to include this with the head instead.
Over time, I have ended up switching from Remo coated Ambassadors to Evans coated G1s on my toms and snares and am thrilled with them as well. I think Evans makes an extremely decent array of well manufactured and consistent drumheads, and I'm glad I finally got around to checking them out. You will too.

Sounds great, nice boom! Paired with Evans EQ3 reso.2017年2月8日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I love this head. Now, just because I say I love it doesn't necessarily mean you should buy it. I am no expert or know tons about drumming. I just have an idea of the kinds of sounds I like, so since I like this head, I guess it means this is the head I would buy again to get that sound I like. Hope that makes sense. Now you have to consider that everyone tunes their drums differently so that will also affect the sound and whether or not you like this head. The way I did it was I replaced the head, finger tightened the lugs, rest my hand on the head and tightened each lug till the ripples were gone, but only to get rid of the ripples. Then just did a slight turn on each lug again and one more time and I was done. Now as for the muffling, I just used and old bed pillow that was all worn out and made sure the pillow was touching the front and back head and was laid out on the bottom of the drum nicely. I will be posting a video later on how it sounds.
Best bass drum head I've ever played2015年7月30日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Best bass drum head I've ever played! Will never need anything else. This head has such a rich, just deep enough, sharp punch yet warm attack. It delivers a clean thump without annoying overtones or sounding like muffled plastic! I do have a king size pillow inside the drum though. I use a Tama Speedcobra Double bass pedal and can absolutely fly very cleanly and controllably on this head. It has a tight, springy feel that you can definitely notice and it definitely helps me be crisper with all beats and solos! I don't think you can go wrong with this head with Rock and Roll, Fusion, Jazz and Country… Well, if you play folk music you may just need a tambourine! Just kidding!!
Not my cup of tea2012年3月16日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I forgot I had bought one of these EQ4 heads several years ago when they first came out. Expensive mistake. On my Pearl Export Select poplar wood drums, the EQ4 just has too much presence and attack for me, much too bright and not enough warmth. But since drums and drumheads are very subjective, you might love it (if I played with a rock group, I might use it). I bought myself the best bass drum head I've yet had the pleasure of using, which is the Evans Clear EQ3 batter. To my ears, the EQ3 just has much more warmth combined with a chest grabbing punchy attack, not bright like the EQ4.
The head does what it's designed to do, but ...2017年12月1日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
The head does what it's designed to do, but you should know... it does NOT fit under the normal 16" floor tom rim. This bass drum head requires a "bass drum" hoop. So if you're being creative turning your 16" tom into a bass drum just be aware.
