        This is the best bass drum head you can buy if you want that deep punchy rumble of a bass drum. I have tried other brands such as psIII, emad clear and coated but they fall short to this head. The key to this head is to tension it just enough to get it to sing. Too loose and it sounds dead and to tight it loses it deep rumble. Also, I would highly recommend an EQ patch as this is my second SKII head, my first one lasted only a couple of months without it. My current one with the eq patch is still going strong 2+ years later.

        I bought the Aquarian Super Kick II after my Entry-Level Yamaha's stock head broke after almost 2 years of four on the floor punk, metal, funk, jazz, etc. I had been eyeing this head because of all the good things I heard about it. You see, I am an Evans man, and I wanted to try this to see how Aquarian holds up. I then tried it. it was AMAZING. It was auto muffled, but not muffled enough that it sounded dead. It got me the huge, Bonham style sound I was looking for. I was very happy with my purchase. This is an amazing sounding head, and I would reccomend it, but then... Two weeks later, a big crash was right in the middle! I have fantastic tecnique, and have only broken 1 head (and no cymbals) in my 2 years of drumming. I had no idea how it could have broken. The man who sold it to me said his lasted him a year! The head still plays (thankfully, like I have another 40 dollars to go buy an EMAD with) but the sound is not good. It sounds very weak, empty and exactly like my entry level Yamaha's stock head. All in all, I am very angry that I bought a bad products. I do not think less of Aquarian, and most likely will purchase another Super Kick II in a few years, but right now I am horrified that I bought a bad product. Aquarian will be hearing about this on Monday, and I hope they give me a refund, so I can buy an Evans EMAD bass drum head.

            I purchased this because of all the great reviews I read on MF website. As soon as I put it on, it was great... for about 2 days, then it broke. What the heck was I thinking? My Evans EQ3's last longer than this head. Bad Quality. I would not recommend a product of this poor quality.

            Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

            I've used this head on my old set, and my new one. My old drum set was SP and had a 20" bass and it sounded BEAUTIFUL. Made the not-so-great drum so literally incredible. Since it sounded so good on my old set, I figured I would put it on my new pearl forum set which has a 22" bass drum. I was worried that since it was such a big drum I'd need a pillow in the drum too. This, however, was not the case. The hanging dampening ring on the inside of the head is all it needed. The pillow just made it sound dead. Now the drum sounds even better. BEAUTIFUL work done by Aquarian. Definitely give em props. Best bass head around.

            Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

            15 years ago I bought this head. It immediately gave me the sound I wanted. I used this head for 10 years on all types of gigs. Then I was a staff drummer in a local studio and did countless demos. After 15 years I decided to switch to an Evans GMAD. I like the sound the sound I'm getting with the Evans but it took me a while to find the right tuning and Reso control. The old head was switched to another kit in the same studio. That's unbelievable. I helped a friend restore a older Yamaha kit and we went with the Aquarian SKII. Along with a Mudstuffin Bass Drum Reso Pad. His base drum now soundes better than mine. When I change bass drum heads I will go back to this one. You can't miss.

                Offers great punch.

                    I recently went to a smaller kick (20" from a 22"). The stock heads that came with it sounded "sproingy." I paired the Superkick II with an Aquarian Regulator reso. Sounds perfect. If you bury the beater, you get the 70's "thud," but if you let the beater rebound you get just the slightest sustain that sounds like a heart-beat through a stethoscope. No more pillow or blankets in the kick, sounds great as is.

                        This is the perfect bass drum head. Exactly the right "thump". Forget using pillows or tape... just put this on and give it a kick. The only thing it needs is an impact pad. I have one on my rehearsal kit and my road kit. Just perfect.
