I was forced to use the Aquarian Super Kick series because I destroyed every Evans and Remo head I bought; the hammer would pierce the head. I asked the boys at Guitar Center for the most durable head, and I was pointed to Aquarian. That was 10 years ago, I never switched back.

I currently play a 20"x20" virgin kick with a Superkick II strapped on, and my god how deep does it sound. It's an air cannon of low-end power.

With this head, you get what you pay for. It's more expensive than the competition, but it sounds great because of the built-in dampening ring, and it will last forever. Which, to me, is important, because the kickdrum head should be the last head any drummer should have to replace.

I bought the Aquarian Super Kick II after my Entry-Level Yamaha's stock head broke after almost 2 years of four on the floor punk, metal, funk, jazz, etc. I had been eyeing this head because of all the good things I heard about it. You see, I am an Evans man, and I wanted to try this to see how Aquarian holds up. I then tried it. it was AMAZING. It was auto muffled, but not muffled enough that it sounded dead. It got me the huge, Bonham style sound I was looking for. I was very happy with my purchase. This is an amazing sounding head, and I would reccomend it, but then... Two weeks later, a big crash was right in the middle! I have fantastic tecnique, and have only broken 1 head (and no cymbals) in my 2 years of drumming. I had no idea how it could have broken. The man who sold it to me said his lasted him a year! The head still plays (thankfully, like I have another 40 dollars to go buy an EMAD with) but the sound is not good. It sounds very weak, empty and exactly like my entry level Yamaha's stock head. All in all, I am very angry that I bought a bad products. I do not think less of Aquarian, and most likely will purchase another Super Kick II in a few years, but right now I am horrified that I bought a bad product. Aquarian will be hearing about this on Monday, and I hope they give me a refund, so I can buy an Evans EMAD bass drum head.

Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

This is the best bass drum head you can buy if you want that deep punchy rumble of a bass drum. I have tried other brands such as psIII, emad clear and coated but they fall short to this head. The key to this head is to tension it just enough to get it to sing. Too loose and it sounds dead and to tight it loses it deep rumble. Also, I would highly recommend an EQ patch as this is my second SKII head, my first one lasted only a couple of months without it. My current one with the eq patch is still going strong 2+ years later.

    Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

    Not only will you hear the difference but you will also feel the difference too! This Head Has a thunderous sound but is also very focused with a depth that I have not found in other heads. Iv'e always been a fan of Aquarian but I also use Remo and Evans. For a bass drum head with pure attack and no ring. Absolutly no other muffling needed! So Take out the pillow of your bass drum and replace you old drum head with the Aqaurian Super Kick 2.I think you'll be happy with the dramatic upgrade of sound and durability at a very reasonable price!

      I have played Evans Genera EQ3 bass heads for years.
      They were out of stock,so I ordered the Aquarian Super Kick.What a fatass kick drum!! If this holds up like the Evans for long term use,I'm sold for life.Might even try some on the rest of the kit.

      Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

      Hi guys,
      I've been playing drums for quite a while (many, many years...) and I can't believe this Super Kick II can be this good: clear and precise attack sound, loud, very loud and low frequencies galore. With a decent mic you can get a killer sound that will surprise you, and you really don't need to additionally muffle your bass drum. The floating muffle ring that comes with it does an incredible good job.
      When I practice at home it doesn't matter the blankets I throw inside the bass drum, it's still loud.
      This is THE BEST bass drum head I ever had, hands down.
      Jeff
      Clear attack, loud, low sound and no ringing, it gets the best from your shells.
      The quality is as you would expect from such reputable company.
      Dirt cheap, guys.

      Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

      I have been playing drums for over ten years in multiple hard rock, metal, and southern rock bands. i've used everything from remo to evans to aquarian and hands down this is the best head i've ever used. i play a pearl export with the standard pearl front head no hole and this head gets the deepest punchiest sounds ever. no annoying overtone just a BOOM and great low end tone. i have used this head for over a year and will never use anything else. recommended for any style. buy it you will not regret it.

            I wanted a deep bass sound without adding pillows and the likes between the two heads. This combined with the ported Evans head and a kick port really did the job. Now the kick drum sounds like a drum instead of wet cardboard when the pillow was in between the old heads. Several reviewers mentioned that these heads had to be tightened a little tighter than regular heads. These heads are stiffer but it didn't seem like I had to tighten them too much. They just felt stiffer than other heads I have used.

              I purchased this because of all the great reviews I read on MF website. As soon as I put it on, it was great... for about 2 days, then it broke. What the heck was I thinking? My Evans EQ3's last longer than this head. Bad Quality. I would not recommend a product of this poor quality.

                  I recently went to a smaller kick (20" from a 22"). The stock heads that came with it sounded "sproingy." I paired the Superkick II with an Aquarian Regulator reso. Sounds perfect. If you bury the beater, you get the 70's "thud," but if you let the beater rebound you get just the slightest sustain that sounds like a heart-beat through a stethoscope. No more pillow or blankets in the kick, sounds great as is.

                      I have been messing around with getting a good sound out of my kick for an embarrassing amount of years. I finally replaced all of the batter heads on our drum kit and saw that this kick head was highly rated. I can see why! I am a total novice and after a quick youtube video on tuning a bass drum and getting this new head on, my kick drum is exactly where I have wanted it to be. Stop messing around with fine tuning your old batter heads on your kick and just buy one of these. Great product with a great reputation.

                            Got the surper kick 2 after a friend suggested it to me, and I couldn't be happier. After installing it on my gretsch catalina maple 22" kick drum and adding a hole to the reso side, this kick has been converted into a cannon!!!! Try it out, you won't be dissapointed. I threw an evans EQ pad bass drum muffler in their, but it is barely touching and it sounds really good without it, maybe better.

                            This is the first of this type of head for me and it has made a night and day difference from my remo head. I used to have to use a pillow or blanket inside my kick, but whatever muffling technique is in this head was done perfectly. I always hated foam rings and I was skeptical when I bought this head. But I am so glad I did. I throw in an AKG kick mic and this head is the sweetest sounding and feeling kick head I've ever played on.
