Little too deadening for my taste

      Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

      Guys these are little too dead-ening for my personal taste. I like it wet and glossy these are meant to suppress that. My band gets videotaped a lot, so the drums have to have a loud vibrant presence especially if you want to hear the strokes when I go for Pantera style triplet-to-crash accents, or quadruplet-to-crash accents.

      These are more meant for the dudes that wanna kill the ring from drums.

      I understand that, but when it comes to videotaping, I gotta have all the voice I can possibly get from my kit. Our camera has a high quality mic, so the overtones (or what you would consider unwanted ring) gets transformed to a good sound pretty nicely. Basically, I need ALL the sound I can get from the shells & heads, but the point to THESE heads is deadening all those sounds. They are great for that though.

      What these DO (not what they sound like) are what pinstripes do, rather than what Emperors and Ambassadors do. For some reason this wasn't clear to me when doing research. I just wanted to be specific about this cuz I read all the 'YEAH THESE SOUND AWESOME' reviews and spent my money in the wrong direction.

      However, if your a 'dead' guy though, YES these are better than pinstripes. And you prolly won't need Moongels or tape & cotton.

      Also one last thing - if you're a budget drummer and need everlasting heads, GO FOR IT, these are prolly the best.

        Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

        These tom heads provide amazing control to my sound. No sloppy off-tone I had with my stock Ludwigs. If you like that sharp punch for metal drumming, this will definitely be up your alley.

        Aquarian has definitely been impressive, so far. Currently, all my heads are Aquarian, and I'm glad I made that decision.

        Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

        I have used Remo pinstripes and evans genera heads in the past, but these aquarians blow them away. I've been using them for two years. I recently installed them on my ddrum bubinga drumset. These heads sound better tuned somewhat loose. Using my evans drum tuner, I tuned them to #3 and the resonant heads on the bottom to #4. Aquarian says that the resonant head should be slightly tighter than the batter head. The durability and tone is Excellent. Still need dampening rings or moongels, though.

          Great sound if you like low, since tuning high will give you issues with sound quality (but they are meant to be tuned low so......)

          Good durability and look great.

            I have had this head for 2 years now, it probably needs to be changed, but it still sounds pretty amazing. You really just need to tune it like 1/8 of a turn higher than fingertight and it just lets go. Beautiful sound. Not great for jazz, but everything else.

            Great Amazing Sound

            By Gregory McManus

            from Charlotte, NC

            Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

            These heads are fanFREAKINGtastic. I really enjoy playing these heads, they are super easy to tune and to tune well. I like to tune my toms fairly lower with some nice sustain to the tone, sorta like (incase of my floor tom) a base drop, and these heads make that easy to get. I play a lot of pop/rock/ambiant style of music so I needed that sustain to cut through everything else.

            Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

            I replaced my Remo pinstripes with a complete set of Power Dot's and the tone and sound that came from them are top notch. I always used rings with the pinstrips because I would always get a lot of overtones, but not from these babies. The tone is so deep and warm, very little overtones if any, and great sound. People had issues with tuning, however I did not and I'm no tuning genius by any stretch of the imagination. One thing I really liked is that in a half-way decent sounding venue, they really carry the low impact of the tom-toms. I nearly fell off my seat when playing live on how deep these can get. I am obsessed with playing these live now and am glad I don't have to rely on the sound guy to mask my poor tuning skills and old, stretched heads anymore.
