    Default EMAD or Powerstroke?

    I'm looking for a bass head that will give me a deep dark sound like the ones i hear from the reverend and jordison.
    which gives the more "metal" sound? the Evans EMAD or the Remo powerstroke? opinions please!!!

    ive used both, unfortunately the powerstroke was on a cheap beginners kit but out of the two, EMAD which I am using at the moment.

    yes but it also depends on the drums as well. the EMAD on the gretsch sounds darker than the powerstroke.

    I also vote for the aquarian Superkick - it thumps HARD and is rock solid.

    but is the sound it produces like an emad because i've heard an Emad once before.

    I vote EMAD, I love the sound they produce, but it really is a matter of personal taste, there all good heads.

    Good question, don't quote me on this, but I believe the EMAD is a single ply, and the Emad 2 in a double ply head, but I am not totally certain on this.

    Yes, DDB, that's correct. The EMAD is single ply, and the EMAD2 is double ply. Both with dampening rings.

    I use the Evans Emad II with the thicker ring of the 2 they provide and my bass drum (22"x19") has some serious thump. I tried the powerstroke and it just was'nt boomy enough. I also use the Evans bass drum muffler system and I switch my beaters from felt to hard plastic if I'm playing metal. With the Emad II being 2-ply, you don't have to put a kick pad on the head either.
