Drummer broke through drum head

he uses iron cobras and the head was a evans*, not sure if single or double ply and one of those sticker looking things where the heads hit, it also had one of those o muffle ring things. We just really started gigging so now that it is broken would it be ok to replace it with a similar set up or is there something better we can upgrade to?

Experiment with different heads. I've found Remo heads to be my least favorite. I'm a big believer in the Evans Emad heads, unless using triggers, where I favor the Aquarian Super kick III.

Edited to add: The Remo kevlar bass drum patch is a must for getting the most longevity out of your bass drum head IMO.

ESP M-II -> Randall Diavlo 100 -> Mesa Rectifier 4x12 and 2x12.

look on the left side in the area where it tells the username, location, etc.. look at the bottom and look for the scales symbol inbetween the ! and the computers. click the scales and hopefully choose positive feedback hah.

also, yeah if your drummer is using anything other than felt beaters (hard rubber, wood) then the stick on kevlar patches are an absolute must! also +1 to the evans EMAD recommendation. ive had very good results with those heads in the past

HOLLLLLLLLD UP

how long has he had that bass head?
if its not that old of a head, tell him to ease up on the strokes, cause there's no need to assault your bass drum head that hard
heads are meant to take a beating.

if its just normal wear then thats quite alright

from personal experience, and plenty of usage from all kinds and brands of heads:
go with evans

that being said, I'd get an EMAD, or even a GMAD, both allow more controll of the attack and punch with the EQ ring.

now I've had their black double EQ patch, and I've used it consistently for year now, and i've had a few people tell me they hate them, but mine holds up super well, and does wonders for the sound.

I like my guitar tone like I like my women, perfect rounded bottom end, cut in the mid section, heavy on the top end, and super tight.

alright seems like emads are the way to go, we bought the kit used about 8 -14 months ago. i don't relaly remember but the guy said he had owned the drums for a couple years. so i think they lasted pretty long


and i just looked at the broken head and it was an evans emad so i guess we are just gettin another one

yeah man that's just a rough estimate, it honestly could have been closer to 2 years ago i can't remember dates to save my life. thanks for all the suggestions though idk if my rep counts for anything but you guys got it

Most big name artists and even drum head companies will tell you that Remo sound the best..the only problem is they don't last long and that's why there's other brands like Evans and Aquarian etc... I'd highly recommend the Aquarian Super Kick II

*also when you are adding to a persons rep, make sure you select "i approve" because it appears you accidentally selected "i disapprove" for my above post!

aquarian superkicks are also great, but in my experience, the EMAD lasts longer. not sure about how the prices compare between the two though. ive never used remo kick heads so cant comment on those.

My drummer just did the same thing to a Remo with felt & black plastic pad after a year. He plays his whole kit hard and doesn't really care about tech stuff. I have a feeling yall just really helped him out though.

I enjoy Aquarian actually with a little muffling. They take a beating and still sound great.

I've been using Remo Powerstroke 4s for a couple years now but I've heard a few Aquarian Super Kick II's and they sound punchy as hell, so that'll be what I try next. And the Remo FALAM patches are a must, I completely agree.
