      OVERVIEW

      The Hi-Energy Drumhead is a clear, single-ply head with an extremely thin layer of Power Dot material "bonded" to the entire surface of the head. It is reinforced in the center with a small Power Dot. Designed for heavy hitters who want a powerful sound and a lot of durability.

      The new "Safe-T-Loc" hoop along with Aquarian's "Sound Curve" collar design provides easy tuning; great stick response; zero slippage inside the hoop; consistent sound; increased resonance and sensitivity; and the sound that drummers need and deserve.

      Powerful and durable.

      A music store salesman/drum teacher sold me one of these, and I've had nothing but compliments and positive reaction to the sound of my snare drums. I used it on a Ludwig steel 14x5-1/4 "Broadway" snare, then switched it over to my inexpensive ("Saltbox") 14x5-1/2 wooden snare, and have received compliments on how good the wooden snare sounds (as well as how good the Ludwig sounded). I am not having much of a problem with dynamics, except when practicing in a small apartment. It loses it, only when playing way, way low (like a whisper). I guess I'm generally a medium to hard hitter, though. My cheap snare has just a little ring to it, without many high-pitched overtones. I may try one of the X-Series coated heads on the Ludwig next, for a brighter snappier sound, to use on some songs. I'm happy with all Aquarian batter heads. They are, at least, right up there with Remo Pinstripes and Evans Hydraulic, I would say. I also upgraded from the cheap stock head to Aquarian Classic Clear snare side drum head, and that is nice too; must be the patented hoop design. I hope this helps you with your decision on the drum head for the backbeat sound on your drum kit.

      I only use Aquarian heads and just recently tried the Hi-Energy on my snare on a tip from a friend. As with all Aquarians the sound is great. The problem I have with it is that it is limited to heavy hitters. If you're doing anything besides rock etc. you probably won't like these due to a lack of stick response. If only power playing is your thing these are definitely the heads to buy. If you're mixing it up I'd go with with something else such as the Aquarian Studio X.

          Add the AQUARIAN bottom snare head as well. You will get a sharper, cleaner sound with no added rings or dampeners.

            Started using this head on my snare about 18 years ago and that first one lasted about six or seven years. They are very durable and sound great in a metal band setting.

            I love the sound of Mick Brown(Dokken) whether, when the 80´s I saw this great drummer used Aquarian drum heads, I became a fan of this brand.
            This snare drum head is a three-layer cake: indestructible and with incredible power.
            Achieve a stunning bass sound and lots of volume.

            My only gripe was not for jazz musicians or small acoustic bands, yes is perfect for rock, electronics and many other styles.
            Aquarian heads rule !!!

                I put this head on my snare, and POW!! Instant sound change. This head takes a searous beating, and than sits back to laugh at you. As if it knew you where gonna like it. I feel sorry for the brushers. This is a head strickly for the pounders!!! Four years old and still sronger than any other head yet.

                Unusable Ring

                By 

                from Tyler, TX

                Comments about Aquarian Hi-Energy Drumhead:

                I play single ply clear Ambassador on the snare usually. But they've broken before. I bought this for the durability and found a few interesting things out as I was tuning.The kevlar-like coating on top keeps it from giving you a note when tuning the individual keys; you don't know what it's tuned at. I kept going until I got high-pitched notes out of it, and the tension I play at to get crack (Jose Pasillas, John Otto).The excessive over-ring is unbearable. I've tuned heads before, replaced and tuned again. I know how to tune a drum and what to do to fix it or compensate for things. This ring was pissing me off. Even the internal muffler didn't eliminate it (maybe 70%) but was still holding that high ring after a hit. Loosening the reso made it worse. With drumheads, to keep from ringing, the two heads can be tuned apart from one another and ring disappears. Doing that amplified the ring and muddied the snares so I knew I was correct the first time.Rockers who care about your snare sound, DO NOT buy this. You'll have a headache and still have crap. I gave the features a 4.5 because idea with the material would be cool if it didn't feedback the ring.NOT FOR REAL DRUMMERS

                Simply put, this is the best snare drum head I have ever used. It stood up to high tension and some serious pounding and lasted a very long time!

                I play in several bands around the area and practice about five hours a day. This snare head is great! short and simple in real time, sexy, east to tune, looks sweet. bottom line, it gets girls. the girls love me for my aquarian heads.
