Getting just the right amount of ring and resonance in a kick drum when recording can be a challenge; typically we resort to the tried and true (but certainly not ideal) trick of stuffing a blanket into the kick. It controls the ring and resonance, but there’s little control…and those old blankets most drummers haul around aren’t exactly hygienic!
A better solution? The Evans EQ Pad! The EQ Pad is a hinged damping pad. The hinge allows the pad to bounce off the drum head at impact then return to rest, allowing a burst of beautiful but highly controlled resonance to occur and letting the drum actually sound like a drum!
The EQ Pad is versatile, controllable, consistent, and repeatable. Add one to your drum miking kit and
