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:

    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:

        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!

        Favorite heads for toms and snare, give a round tone and less of a plastic tap.

            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.

                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!

                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.

                Great Heads, Affordable Price!

                from Northern California

                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.
