        I use these on my 8 12 and 16 inch toms

        Great sound if you like low, since tuning high will give you issues with sound quality (but they are meant to be tuned low so......)

        Good durability and look great.

            Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

            I use Aquarian Performance II Power Dot drumheads on my classic Ludwig "Big Beat" set. They have that fat, deep sound from the 70's, but also have a decent amount of resonance. I just tighten them down until the wrinkles are out, and I get a tone. They are also very durable.

              Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

              These tom heads provide amazing control to my sound. No sloppy off-tone I had with my stock Ludwigs. If you like that sharp punch for metal drumming, this will definitely be up your alley.

              Aquarian has definitely been impressive, so far. Currently, all my heads are Aquarian, and I'm glad I made that decision.

                I have had this head for 2 years now, it probably needs to be changed, but it still sounds pretty amazing. You really just need to tune it like 1/8 of a turn higher than fingertight and it just lets go. Beautiful sound. Not great for jazz, but everything else.

                  Yes, some people won't like how dead sounding they are, but I find they work very well for playing low volumes & mike up nicely for loud volumes & last a very long time.

                      Comments about Aquarian Performance II Power Dot Drumhead:

                      Guys these are little too dead-ening for my personal taste. I like it wet and glossy these are meant to suppress that. My band gets videotaped a lot, so the drums have to have a loud vibrant presence especially if you want to hear the strokes when I go for Pantera style triplet-to-crash accents, or quadruplet-to-crash accents.

                      These are more meant for the dudes that wanna kill the ring from drums.

                      I understand that, but when it comes to videotaping, I gotta have all the voice I can possibly get from my kit. Our camera has a high quality mic, so the overtones (or what you would consider unwanted ring) gets transformed to a good sound pretty nicely. Basically, I need ALL the sound I can get from the shells & heads, but the point to THESE heads is deadening all those sounds. They are great for that though.

                      What these DO (not what they sound like) are what pinstripes do, rather than what Emperors and Ambassadors do. For some reason this wasn't clear to me when doing research. I just wanted to be specific about this cuz I read all the 'YEAH THESE SOUND AWESOME' reviews and spent my money in the wrong direction.

                      However, if your a 'dead' guy though, YES these are better than pinstripes. And you prolly won't need Moongels or tape & cotton.

                      Also one last thing - if you're a budget drummer and need everlasting heads, GO FOR IT, these are prolly the best.

                        Aquarian Heads are a must for my Tama Swingstar. The sound is deep, controlled and they are easy to tune. I've been using Aquarian Heads for the last 15 to 20 years. I would highly recommend their use on any drumset!

                            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!

                            These heads are fanFREAKINGtastic. I really enjoy playing these heads, they are super easy to tune and to tune well. I like to tune my toms fairly lower with some nice sustain to the tone, sorta like (incase of my floor tom) a base drop, and these heads make that easy to get. I play a lot of pop/rock/ambiant style of music so I needed that sustain to cut through everything else.
