    This product helps to control the “ringing” that is present in a bass drum. It will not make the drum sound “deeper” like a feather pillow. The attachments are (2) strips of velcro that did not stick to the inside of my wood drum; so the item came loose after a week and was floating around inside the drum. It is also a bit lighter than i expected, but it will do the job in giving you control of your sound and looks better than an old pillow or towel. For that deeper sound, I changed out the single 7mil head and ordered a double ply 7mil head and that did the trick to deliver the solid deep sound that I was after.

    So let me say this, this product did great for playing at home, at a gig, or with my band. BUT! When it came to recording, it didn’t offer enough muffling to allow the bass drum to catch the punch of my bass drum, so I replaced it with a Serta bed pillow, and that did the job.

    The Evans BD Pillow has worked well for me over the past 8 years or so. It was a door prize at a MI PAS convention. I managed not to lose it so I am shopping for a second for my second BD. I use it in a 26″ with Aquarian Super Kick heads and it BOOMS. I use it on the batter with a small hand towel on the resonant in my smaller 18″ BD too. Quality material has kept it in one piece and the nylon seam makes it fold nicely to control the amount of contact.
