      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.

        Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

        I absolutely love Aquarian heads! I was a big Remo pinstripe fan for a long time until a friend introduced me to this brand of drum heads. They last longer, resonate better, and have that deep punchy sound I look for in my style of drumming. I will continue to buy these as long as they manufacture them.

          This is the best bass drum head on the market in my opinion. I tuned mine a tad low, and I LOVE the sound. I'm producing deep low fat punchy thumping beats in my basement, and my girlfriend LOVES IT! ;)

            Comments about Aquarian Super Kick II Drum Head:

            I wanted a deep bass sound without adding pillows and the likes between the two heads. This combined with the ported Evans head and a kick port really did the job. Now the kick drum sounds like a drum instead of wet cardboard when the pillow was in between the old heads. Several reviewers mentioned that these heads had to be tightened a little tighter than regular heads. These heads are stiffer but it didn't seem like I had to tighten them too much. They just felt stiffer than other heads I have used.

              This head really dampens the ring you can experience with your bass drum. No more pillow in the drum with this head!!! It may quiet the drum slightly more than desired but a great product overall!!!

                        Very pleased with the Aquarian Super Kick 2! I bought mine for my 18" Tama bass and play completely open. The super kick 2 provides a nice controlled boom from a very small bass drum.
