      ...The Aquarian Focus X head wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I originally had a Remo Ambassador Coated on my snare and I loved the brightness of it but the ring was an issue and I wanted an alternative to conventional muffling, so I bought the Focus X. Don't get me wrong, this is a quality head, but the head sacrifices brightness for tonal control in the extreme. I was looking for a better balance. So I took the head off, and cut out the vented ring underneath the head and now my snare sounds perfect. This is a great head, but if you're not into that warm, punchy snare sound, then you might end up doing the same as I did. Hope this helps you guys.

      In April 2014 I purchased new set of batter and resonant skins for a kit i have home
      Aquarian focus-X Snare
      performance II Power Dot -toms
      Bass Drum head Pack 22 Inch
      I haven't had much time to deal wit this kit, I'm home now but usually on the road
      The ' tom's sound great,' the kick, had to play with, the same with the snare,
      but i finally heard what I'm accustom to hearing, no overtones, without tape
      and also by other drummers reviews

      within a half hour the snare skin split two inches from 12 o'clock horizontal facing front
      no where near where the stick attacks the skin, not sure if it was the skin, or to tight?
      don't think so! it had just became perfect, no overtones,listening, thinking, sounds great!
      i was going to order another skin, seen a few other guys had the same issue,
      so now should I go with a two ply, would prefer not to miss match Mfg.skins names on a standard kit.
      Evans are brighter, I do like both! Aquarian are very good sounding Drum Heads, Fat with Thump!

      until then, to the closet, have a collection of old skins., it'll give me something to mull over. TV

              I've always used Remo coated ambassadors for a snare batter. I just switched over to the Focus-X on my Mapex Tomahawk snare. WOW, what a difference. No more endless ring or nasty overtones, and a consistant tone from the center out to the edge. If your looking for a head to tame your snare, and give you an awesome tone, look no further. And also, it's so easy to tune. Another home run for Aquarian.

                    After growing up in the weather king /Ludwig era, I was delighted to find a better head. The damper ring on the Focus-X does a great job on a drum that used to have 3 moon gels to contain the ring. With the Focus-X, it has 0. The stick bounce has been perfect for concert work including marches, show tunes, classical, etc. It's on a high end CB super-sensitive.

                        An excellent snare batter head. Removes "just enough" overtone ring from the drum. Heavy coating works well for brushes. I have started putting this head on all my snare drums that don't have the standard vintage internal muffler. It works well for a wide variety of musical styles and drum set-ups. I have used it with Studio X, Pin-Stripes, Evans G1 & G2, Fiberskyn 3, and coated Ambassadors on the toms.
