I just cant say enough good about these heads. I've got them on all my toms 10,12,13,14, and 16 floor tom, on a Mapex Pro Maple Studio Kit. These heads replaced the stock heads back about 8 yrs ago, and still sound and look fantastic! I'm a moderate hitting drummer, and show no mercy for these heads when doing a live show...(classic rock). They hold their tune forever! Honestly, I check the tune on these about once every 2-3 months! ...they just dont change! Quallity Maple shells need a little overtone and ring control...these heads do the trick, hands down. I gave the Aquarian Studio-X heads a positive 10, all the way around. Their cheap, bullet proof, easy to tune, do what they claim, and last forever!! When I "do" decide to replace these heads, Studio-X are going back on! I'm buying another ful set soon, just in fear that they may not be available in another couple of years!!!!!

Tried the studio x and I didn?t have very good results. I got a Tama star classic performer birch fusion kit and I can tune drums decent but I couldn?t get the sound I was after. Tried different batter side and resonant side tensions still they didn?t impress me. My 10" tom just sounded like ****. I even played them in a little. I wanted to try a one ply head. Probably would work decent for jazz or light music. Don?t know why I wanted to try to get a better sound than I had with Evans EC2's. I put them back on and now I realize that that is the best head on the market. I'm never straying from them again. Probably if you play heavier music and want Aquarian heads you should look at Performance 2'S with the power dot.

          Comments about Aquarian Studio-X Drumhead:

          I just wanted to comment about an alternate use for these heads that aquarian does not mention in their product literature. These make FANTASTIC resonant heads if you are looking to "fatten" you sound. great companion to the performance twos or if used with response 2s or super 2s you can get a nice medium between those heads and ther perf 2s. if used with classic clears or satin TCs you can get a nice subtle bit 0f dampaning on the single ply ring- filtering out some of the highest (and most unpleasant) overtones without modifying your overall tone like moon gels or studio rings on the batter head.

          Seriously warms, smooths, fattens, and slightly damps overtones as a resonant head. I absolutly love these heads. I think i like them better as reso heads than batters to be honest!

                Comments about Aquarian Studio-X Drumhead:

                I got these heads as a replacement to a set of Evans g2s. After I got them tuned up I immediately like these as much if not more. The Evans still have better attack, but these provide a warmer tone that I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of attack for. Recommended for those of us who need a tight sound with less ring, while still maintaining a good tone.

                Review of Studio-X Aquarian DrumHead

                By Steven Micklin

                from Northern Michigan

                Comments about Aquarian Studio-X Drumhead:

                These drum heads work as advertised. I put these on a set of Yamaha 100% birch laquered drums - all of my toms. The birch shells have a nice tonal quality and lots of projection, but can be a bit "ringy". The Studio-X heads cut out the unwanted ring while keeping the tonal qualities that I enjoy and the projection needed for playing in clubs with no mikes on the drums. The combination of these heads and the birch shells, however, create a drum that wants to be played hard! so I wouldn't necesarily use these for something like lounge jazz.... But for Country or Rock, they are fantastic!
                Muffling system works as designed and advertized.
                Well made and packaged
