Anyone encountered similar issues? I've had 22" EMADs for years and they are great.
That sounds like a quality control issue over at Evans. If you had an 18" head that was too small for your bass drum hoops than you could say it was because you're using a 18" tom head instead of a bass drum head. But your case is vice-versa. I say send it back to Evans and ask them what gives. If it's happening with your drum, it'll happen with other 18" bass drums too.
