I had the EMAD combo a few years back on an old kit. Foam rings broke off on both batter and reso.

Rumour has it they've addressed these issues, but I couldn't say.

Sounded good before failing though.

Have you experimented with a non-muffled reso yet?

You really need to have a solid reference point for your particular drum and preferences before you press on.

IMHO, two muffled heads can be a little bid dead sounding.

I used the Aquarian regulator head with the Evans pillow just touching the batter (EMAD single ply) However like the previous reply said. The plastic rings keep breaking so I am now on the the PS3 . Nice

I use the coated EMAD, and have had wonderful results with an EQ3 smooth white on front. It's a sweet, controlled thump with a little boom, no padding needed.

I use the EMAD batter with EMAD reso and it sounds great - fat and deep. I've had no problems with any of the rings.

I had the same question but instead of spending 60 on a REMAD (that's basically the same as a ported stock P3 with foam ring), I bought a strip of black felt to dry out the P3.

Mind you, a ported P3 is already muffled because of the ring and the hole. If it's still too ringy, a coated reso or a felt strip will dry it out just like the foam ring.

Turning the highs on the EQ down on the front of the house and boosting the lows.
