Aquarian Response 2: Best drum head

By Anan Baransy

from USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

Not only do they look good, but they produce a full deep and rich sound with amazing sustain. They are perfect for 13 inch toms or smaller! As for 14 and bigger diameter drums, I recommend aquarian performance heads with the dot in the middle, because these heads might have too much sustain/ring for bigger toms. These heads took less than 10 minutes to tune and they simply sound amazing. I tried many other brands but nothing comes even close. I use these with classic clear black resonant heads and they make a perfect combinantion.

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    Got myself a set of Aquarian Response II clears for my 8", 10" and 13" toms. The 8" doesn't have much resonance due to its small size, but all of the toms sound absolutely incredible with these on the batter and Aquarian Classic Clears as resos! These heads are great for me since I play a wide variety of music, they sound fantastic with rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, pop, you name it!

    Decent heads

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    Just threw these on my Yamaha YD after having some various old heads on there from the previous user. This was my first time changing heads and I did a bunch of studying before I put them on and got them all equally-tempered and tuned pretty well. The heads are loud and reverberous, clear, and watery. The floor tom is thundering, where as before it sounded papery and weak. Overall, though not amazing or ground-breaking, they are simply a decent 2-ply head with tons of great overtone and clear, cutting tone. I am using the 12, 13, and 16 tom batter heads. Haven't tried the snare head yet so I can't compliment. Also note, as I said earlier, these were the first set of heads I have used and mainly bought them because of the good reviews on this site. Next time I may try Evans because I'm curious what they are like. That being said, these heads are a great replacement head. Recommended if you're looking for more cut-through in your toms.

    simply the best

    By Bob da Drumma

    from Connecticut

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    I've been playing since 1972 and this is simply the best snare head that I've ever owned! I can tune it however I want to and it still sounds great! When I record there are no unwanted overtones. Snare buzz is low, but enough exist to give you a great sound I found that I liked to tune my bottom head loose to get the best sound. When I get close to the rim I'm in heaven! Rim shots are loud and distinct with only a light attack. The name "Response" says it all! I love it when I Tune it loose, I get a great sound with almost no ring.

    Blows G2's away

    By Rythym Devil

    from Putney, VT

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    I just chnged from Hydros to a more open sound, due to my drums getting muddied in the room volume at the club I play at. I bought a set of Aquarian Response 2's and Evans G2's, put an R@ on my 12" and G2 on my 13". I like the look of the G2, but sound is what its all about right?The Aqaurian heads have a much fuller sound, with the perfect amount of overtones. The G2 was close, but ultimately had a tinny sound with the stick contact, and a little throaty. Bottom line Im impressed with the Response 2s sound, stick response and seating, very easy tuning.

      Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

      Aquarian are great drumheads. I get about three months of playing and their dead since I play about every weekend these heads are worth the money. More drummers need to change their heads more often I see others have them on for 6 months or a year. If you play like I do three months is tops then change them out you will thank me !

          Nice, educated, and very helpful staff. I had to special order all of my drum heads before going into the studio. They were all on back order but they were able to get them in stock and shipped to me in plenty of time. There prices are great. I was expecting to spend much more on my heads than expected and I was very happy when I was told my total. I strongly recommend Musicians Friend for all of your musical needs, especially if it's an out of stock item.
