Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

I play an all-maple Ddrum kit, and I use these on my toms (12 and 16) with Remo Ambassador reso heads. I just made the switch from clear Remo Emperors, and these are much more open and musical. The Emperors sounded very flat and cold in comparison. These heads need broken in pretty thoroughly, so I'd recommend tuning them up high and playing for a bit before trying to achieve your desired tuning. These are very dynamic, and both the strike tone and the resonance are clear and natural. These are louder than Emperors.

Amazing product

Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

I have tried all the heads tunned every possible way. These by far make the best heads for a 12inch 13 inch and a 16 inch tom. I recomend these to anybody looking for heads but if u want a snare head I recomend the Remo coated controlled sound reverse dot snare. They make the perfect heads for any set and if you dont know how to tune them well make them sound great with some aquarian studio rings.

            I bought these heads to use on a high-end birch kit. The sound I was getting with the Remo head combination I was using was never anything to write home about. The Response 2 Coated heads with Aquarian Classic Clear heads as the resonant heads gave the toms a really nice, tight punchy sound. No muffling is required and they tune up very easily.

                  Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

                  So since getting into drumming I have tried every head on the market on my toms. I have a 1975 sonor beechwood kit and its very finicky about heads. After all of the trial and error I have been through the remo coated emperors and vintage ambassadors seemed to bring out the most from these drums and of course these were also the first two heads I was told to try. I was actually looking around the musicians friend website, which has one of the best aquarian selections, and I ordered a set of the response 2 coated heads to give them a try. I was a little skeptical because of the much lower price and the fact that it wasn't one of the major two brands but i purchased them anyway. I was blown away when I put these heads on. I gorgeous warm and fat tone with a nice snappy attack and so easy to tune. I instantly fell in love with aquarian and thought Id try the bass drum next. I couldn't believe the instant finished tone I got out of he superkick II and regulator reso on the front. I am now an aquarian fan for life and its all I use! Definitely give these a try. You will not regret it. Also I cant believe how well these hold up to sticks. My coated emperors show stick hits immediately but these are much more difficult to scratch and tear up. An all around perfect drum head!!!!!

                    I have a fusion set and replaced the original top heads with Evans G2 clear heads and was very pleased with the improvement in sound. It was time to get new heads and my drum teacher said he liked Aquarian so I thought I would try them. I got coated response 2 heads and could not believe how great my drums sounded. I was so stoked that I decided to also put Aquarian classic clears on the bottom. They tuned up very well and my drums sound huge. I had no idea my fusion set could sound so big. The tone is deep and clear, and you get alot of sound without having to stroke very hard. I would put these on again in a heartbeat.

                    Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

                    Like a sassy gordita, these heads deliver saucily. They are loud, tight, warm, and thick, and they give a fat sound to your toms. They sound vintage and modern at the same time. Great for tom solos. I had some Aquarian Response 2 clears that I liked better for certain applications, but overall these sounded better for my Rock/Jazz style. I am going with Evans this time around because I want to see what the EC2 SST series has to deliver, but these are great heads in their own right. There's a reason these heads get 5 stars. Excellent value.

                    I had the performance II heads by Aquarian but i found them a little dead. I got these and they have such a big sound and very wide tuning range. I have them on a Pearl Export kit and they make it sound professional.

                    First let me say that I have been and still am a Remo user. However, I always give credit where it's due, so let me say this is without a doubt the best head I have ever used for a snare batter, and I've tried many! I have been looking for this sound, feel, & response for many years. Though I consider myself an intermediate drummer, I know what I like. Having purchased it recently to go along with my new snare (Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute), I found this thing works as advertised. It has a very wide tuning range & sounds great no matter where you set it. It gives off a rich, deep crack, if that's the sound you're looking for. It's also very durable. After my first gig using the snare, the head stayed in tune and took my abuse for two hours without so much as leaving a stick mark!! Buy this head. You will not be disappointed! My Remo's will have to share time with Aquarian now.

                    Aquarian has a "darker" sounding material to them, and the coating lasts longer. I used the Hi-Energy once, and it was too dead, but took a royal beating before I just got sick of the sound and lack of dynamics. I've tried a number of other heads and they either sound like poo, or don't last.
                    These, as a snare batter head, are perfect to my ears. Just enough ring to cut through the mix, you can tune them up to get a real concussive pop from your snare that is pure love. Bonus is that these heads seem to also last longer on average than anything I've used by the other two major brands, and I've gone through a LOT of heads to find the right ones for me.
                    I use these as a snare batter head. I play pretty loud with a lot of energy/drive, most of the time I'm doing rimshots to get that extra crack/pop, so I go through heads pretty quick.
                    As mentioned above, these tend to last longer, tune up better, and overall they are a quality head. I give an 8 because I wish they lasted a BIT longer, but overall they are great.
                    They're more expensive than competing options, but it balances out because they last longer. Still, the MSRP is nuts...no way it costs anywhere near that to make them - and this goes for all drum heads.

                    I'm friends with a few drummers and one guy had a DW set. We went over to mess around a little on them and the set had these heads. I've been to a lot of concerts, been playing for most of my life, and I know when a drum kit sounds good. These were the best I have ever heard, even to this day. I even played a little on a studio set but they didn't sound as good because they weren't sporting these coated Aquarians. The best heads ever!!!!! A must buy!!!!!

                    You can put them on a 10, 12, 14 set and they will sound deep and they are great and cool sounding for solos!

                    After years of playing with Remo heads, I decided it was time for a change. I picked up a set of these for my '67 Ludwig kit and threw them on tonight. WOW! What a difference. Easy to tune and sound punchy and warm. I had tried both Ambassadors and Pinstripes on my Ludwigs and was never satisfied with the sound. These made my ears very happy! I highly recommend trying these out.
