I was blown away from the sound the first time I heard this drum head. At first I thought it was from my resonant head, but after experimenting on another bass drum of the same size, I found out it was all from the Super Kick! I've tried the Evans Emad, but this Aquarian is still king. Over time those Emads start to rattle and buzz rendering the bass drum head useless. Never again will I have to run those old school felt strips in the bass drum. Thank you Aquarian!

I own a Pearl Masters series BRX kit with a 22 x 18" kick. While I'm still experimenting on a great kick head for this drum, the Super Kick 1 ain't it. After putting the head on, I noticed a significant loss of tone (although I had that infamous "bass increase" Super Kicks are known for). After several frustrating moments tuning both high, low, and medium, I'm left with a one-trick pony head that sounds like a bass-heavy cardboard thwack. Almost no sustain whatsoever. It makes my beautiful birch kick drum sound like it's being choked to death. The flip side is that my D6 picks up what the Aquarian lacks with its natural inclination to grab the "click" of the kick drum through its diaphragm. In my opinion for that big bass sound you need some sustain and click, and the Aquarian robs all of that away. The difference between the Evans EQ3 I previously had on there (which is also dampened in its own way) and the Super Kick is night and day. I'd trade someone in a heartbeat.

I would not recommend this if you want anything other than a dead, thuddy bass drum.

Comments about Aquarian Super Kick I Drumhead:

These heads are magic for those of us who cannot afford a high-end set of drums (and it is great for them as well). I have always liked the tone and feel of the Super Kick I because it is single-ply and not too heavy or thick, with a good attack.

              I bought this head along with the ported resonant head for both my bass drums and it is a superb difference. Good solid punch and low end, sounds very controlled and high quality compared to standard remos or evans. I highly recommend these to anyone. You will not be sorry you bought these.

                I have tried other heads and combinations. When I discovered these it was like my search was over. I have several sets and I used what works, for me, Aquarian resonat and Super Kick 1. I'm not the heaviest player so I want the most sound for the least effort. Some compain of a dead 'thud'; I don't find that to be the case. Sounds the way a BD should sound to me - I love them.

                These are great sounding heads. It is just one ply of awesomeness. Very powerful and I get a muffled "boom" which is something I like. I do reccomend this.

                this is the best kick i ever heard. it's a nice quick punch if that's what you like. it is pre-muffled. it uses felt instead of foam. now i don't have ANYTHING inside my bass drum. it doesn't ring. just a nice punch. i reccomend this if you are into metal or rock
