OVERVIEW

Classic coated look and sound.

A coated, single-ply, medium-weight drumhead. The Satin Finish is the thinnest and most durable coating ever developed. Unlike conventional coatings it resists "chipping" and it lasts and lasts. It has an amazing stick and brush response and is great for snares and toms.

Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

Okay... Whoever this guy is who said his head started chipping obviously had a defected head, cause my head is still rolling for 6 months with no chipping of Coating in sight. Let's get to the details. This head Can compete with the Coated Ambassador toe-to-toe and outrun it. People like the Resonance and Open tone of the Remo Coated Ambassador, but the head's coating isn't very durable. Some people think that the Remo Coated Ambassador is too resonant. This head right here lies right in the middle. The perfect amount of resonance along with a Snap that is out of this world. Great for just about any situation you throw at it. Tune this bad boy up real good, and you have a winner baby.

    Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

    I replaced all of my coated ambassadors with these aquarian texture coated heads. i am a nerd when it comes to tuning drums and i always try to get an articulate sound (elvin jones, tony with miles in the 60s, max roach). the ambassadors were leaving me with strange overtones that wouldn't go away, but the texture coated heads took them away and gave me an even clearer sound.

    I play straight-ahead jazz mostly, but practice a lot of gospel chops-style drum techniques.

    Highly recommended!

        Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

        Usually go with old faithful ambassadors for my snare. However, I decided to try these. Head produces a more focused sound (but didn't totally choke the drum either) with great crack. It sounds different than evans and remos in a good way. I'm very impressed thus far with both the sound and quality. It also tuned noticeably easier than remos. Yes my dear sports fans, I think I found what I was looking for after 20 years.

            The Aquarian TC-14 drumhead is tops for my Rogers Dynasonic snare. The Dynasonic is known for being sensitive and open ... the Aquarian head fully complements the drum's sound design. The head coating is super durable as is its general durability.

            Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

            I stumbled upon this head by accident. I ordered a pack of Response 2 drum heads and this coated snare head came free with the pack. I thought I would give it a try since it was free. I had been playing Aquarian's Hi-Energy snare head for the last several months... I was surprised b/c this head is awesome! Its single ply but durable. It is very bright and cracks like a whip, which I love. The coating holds up pretty well, lasted 13-14 shows. Very impressive head.

            Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

            Re-heading my 5 toms wasn't going to be cheap, but Aquarian has made it more affordable. First off, quick FYI, the logo on the heads are different than shown in the picture (not a big deal). These heads sound good, are durable (no chipping from coating yet), and are versatile (i.e. good for rock/jazz). If you're on a budget, and want the most bang for your buck, I'd highly recommend these.

            Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

            This review is for the Aquarian heads that have the new z-100 coating. I bought a texture coated single ply head with Z-100 coating for my snare and I'm extremely happy with it. I decided to try Aquarians after the coating on my brand new Remo heads started to chip off within the first hour of playing. I've had the same Aquarian head with Z-100 coating on my snare for the past 8 months and the coating hasn't chipped off at all. It has smoothed out in the center, but the coating is still intact. These heads even tune up faster and easier than Remos. The only thing I do have to say is that the Aquarian coating doesn't seem to be as crisp as the Remo coating, but this might be my imagination. Regardless, the Aquarian head still sounds great and the Z-100 coating is extremely strong.

              Very high quality and very universal drum head, can be used for different styles. I just updated the one i used to have for long time (still not worn out). The coating is strong, overtones - just the right amount, the price - unbeatable.

                Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

                So I have always been pushed into remo or evans by anyone who I talked drums with but I bought one of these heads just to try on my snare and the rest was history. The 14" Texture coated studio x is all I use on my snare now. On my 70s supra phonic its pure butter. These offer control over the excessive ring but allow sustain and the overall tone room to breathe. Try these out. A piece of moon gel cut in half is all I use on this head and its now on every snare I own!

                Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Drumhead:

                I got texture coated heads for all my tom batters. I play various kinds of jazz and use nothing over a 5A for sticks. Strangely enough I got chipped coating on the two small heads (10,12) after a month. After another month the 12" is now a 'classic clear' since the coating is gone completely. I've never seen a coated head chip off like this. This is leading me to never buy Aquarian heads again as they do just the opposite of what they claim to do.
