So I ripped my first original bass drumhead only over one year due to missing a protection. So after I bought a new drumhead (also a Evans) I knew that I wanted the next one to last way longer, so I needed a protection for my beater.
This item, apart from looking great, does what it is supposed to, protect your drumhead from your beater. Even in my case where I don't have a double bass, I still have one spare in case I opt for double bass, or as a replacement.
The quality of Evans is always great, so this over almost a year, doesn't show almost any marks of use, it has a texture on it so I think this makes it last longer.
A really nice product by Evans and a must for your bass drumhead!
