Default Evans emad 2 muffler ring broke

First off, I love evans. But recently, the ring that holds the foam muffler on the emad is now broken! This sucks! Have any of you had these problems?

Default Re: Evans emad 2 muffler ring broke

I use EMADs on probably 20-25 of my kicks, and have only had the ring split once (on my tour kick, which gets the most handling and playing abuse.) Some people have reported the same problem, and I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but it's extremely rare for me.

Something that is more likely to occur, is the adhesive on the ring loosening from the head. But that's easily solved by following the instructions included with the EMADs - after mounting the head, press firmly around the ring's edge to help seat it. After that, should be no problem (I think it's happened to me only once.)
