      The big, fat tom sound of classic rock!

      Designed for loose tuning to get depth and punch with no over-ring. This head is sealed around the edge to create that really deep sound on toms. No muffling needed.

        I purchased a set of Performance IIs and Classic Clears (for resonant side) on 12 and 16 inch toms. The head is perfect for the 16 inch floor tom. It adds further depth and punch. I like to tune my floor tom pretty loose. In contrast, the 12 inch, using the Performance II, loses its depth and tone. This slightly evened out after I played on it a bit at practice tonight. Perhaps with further wear the head will stretch out and the 12 inch tom will get its tone back. Either way, I think these heads are great for floor toms. With rack toms, especially 12 or smaller, the heads might choke them too much. If anything, I would definitely purchase the Performance IIs for larger size drums.

        Absolutely the worst drumhead I have ever used. I bought these things on a gamble, since I have never heard any before so it is actually my fault. I have a little Mapex Voyager kit that I lug back and forth to Church so I save wear and tear on my more expensive kit that sits in my home studio. Anyway, I thought that the heads would provide some slight natural muffling and some added depth to the little kit, since it has small toms and it came with cheap factory single ply batters. Based on their description and other reviews this seemed a realistic expectation. What I got was the same effect as placing a bath towel over each head. Belive me I know how to tune drums and I don't like any type of muffling at all except for an Evans EQ pillow in the kick, so I was extremely disappointed by the results of these things. I should have known to put a set of Evans G2's (my usual head) on and tune them for the result I wanted, but I tried to take the lazy way out. However, Aquarian's quality of materials and construction is second to none. I just can't recommend this specific head. The Impact kick batters and the Double Thins are excellent. After I give these things "what fer" for a little while just to feel like I did not waste the money I will be putting a set of G2's on.

                  This Aquarian head is my absolute favorite. You can tune it really low without losing any clarity and that works very well for me as I like the contrast between my high and tight snare sound and my toms. It was a great buy with a great price and fast delivery. I would highly recommended this product!

                                  Bought these because Aquarian makes bass heads that are great. But using this head on toms, not so much. Flattened out everything

                                          I really love these Aquarian Heads. I put them on a low end cocktail kit and it made a huge difference! The kit now sounds as good as any regular kit I have played, and I would not hesitate to use it for any of the gigs I play. Bottom line: a fabulous improvement in the sound of my drums!

                                          Very good drumhead. Gives a nice deep sound. Didn't take forever to tune. Doesn't have a terrible overtone. Hasn't scuffed up and continues to give good sound after a beating.
