Ive not played on an Emad

but ill tell you something, I just skinned a 22" on my kick and it sounds awesome, ive only got a small cushion up against my front skin, the snap on dampening pad does wonders, i love it. Id recommend it, but its annoying at £39.99

I use an emad, and swear by it. half the drummers i talk to swear by the emad head, the other half use one of the other hundreds of heads that are out there. the only thing i'v heard being praised as much as the emas is the aquarian superkick II. its a similar head

Aquarian Superkick II will make you happier than those 2, but if u hafta get one of those..powersonic
I completely agree. The Superkick II is amazing. I have had it on my kit for about a year now and still is holding up great and sounds amazing. I had an EMAD on my kit about a year and a half ago, and the part around the outside that holds in the dampening ring broke right off and i ended up taping the ring on the head. I'd definitely go with the Superkick II which has the ring buit into the head.
