Default Evans Retro Screen?

When I get around to buying new bass heads, should this be considered? Considering that all it really does is keep the BD round, is it even worth it?

It won't keep the BD round.

Its great for a single head sound on the kick. Get 30 degrees off center and you can't tell its a screen.

The PEARL Muffle head is just as good for what it does. The EVANS is set in resin, the PEARL is crimped, that's why its half the cost. Pearl Muffle bass only 20" as far as I know.

I would get the PEARL. The EVANS is just a wee bit prettier and has less visible (white) graphics, but the PEARL is half the price.

If you want the look of a bass head without the sound of one, then go for it. However, as far as practicality is concerned, perhaps just find one with a large center hole. If you are going to be miking the kick drum, you might want that option of placing the mic inside. A front head with a large hole in the middle still sounds like a single headed kick but gives you the option of internal miking.
