      OVERVIEW

      The Aquarian Superkick III is a coated, single-ply, medium-weight, ebony bass drumhead with a power dot in the center for added reinforcement. The Superkick III bass drumhead produces a low-end, well-defined punchy sound due to Aquarian's patented Floating Muffling System, which is a narrow felt muffle ring attached to the backside of the drumhead.

      Safe-T-Loc hoop
      This hoop system prevents slippage inside the hoop so that the head does not de-tune during a performance and will not pull out. Tuning is consistent and the head stays in tune.

      Sound Curve Collar Design
      This design allows the Aquarian drumhead to seat perfectly on the bearing edge. No wrinkles even with loose tuning. It conforms instantly to any shell design and makes tuning fast, easy, and more accurate.

      Triple Locking System
      This unique system provides drummers with previously unheard of advantages in resonance and playability. First, holes are punched in the bottom of a "U" shaped channel, which has been formed in the drumhead. These holes allow the epoxy to flow into the "Safe-T-Loc" channel. Second, the "T-Ribs" that form the Safe-T-Loc channel prevent the epoxy and the drumhead, from slipping and pulling away from the hoop. Lastly, the Locking Shoulder acts as a "stop" to ensure the correct collar height for the drumhead.

      Makes any bass drum sound like a million bucks.

          The head is coated with black paint making it a little stiff/plastic sounding. I'm still breaking it in so I'm not sure if it'll change or not.

              Comments about Aquarian Super-Kick III Black Drumhead:

              it looks cool, all black with white stripe around the outside edge...it tuned up ptetty ez. ....however on mu drum, -vintage Ludwig Rockers- it doesn't seem to have quitethe projection or attack that my 26 year old original ludwig bass head had..it was a clear head with silver power dot in the middle...it had a foam muffle ring on 6tthe inside edge attached by a plastic ring that held it against the head with a channel that attached to the rim of the head and held in place that way....it also had a kick pad in the center of the power dot thingy...the stock head would cut through the guitar and bass pretty good...not drown them out but making its presence8 known...when i put the aqarian head on my drum....it tuned it low at first but it just didn't seem to have the same attack...i found that i had to put more effort into it to get the same amout of sound and projection out of the aqaurian head...to be fair though....i have only played on it for a few hours , although it incementally tuned it about a quarter turn tighter and it did seem to get a little bit better as the night progressed...i think altogether i tightened it about 1 full turn altogether....i guess that it would be about 5 or 6 foot lbs if measured with my torque tuner...i am thinking thst adding an aquarian kick pad to it and a few more nights playing and rcperimenting with the lug tension it will be just the sound i am looking for....it certainly has no unwanted overtones and a definitive thump when hit just right.......overall i am quite pleased wth it.....i tune my kickdrum open with no other dampeners exept what is on the head itself....my reso head is also an older aquarian, black with a 5 inch port.....i would recommend this product to anyone and the price was good....with a little time and tuning i am sure i will find the tone i am looking for.....in fact i am going to replace all my drumheads with aquarian products as money and time permits....starting with my snare, which i am orderng....

                This drum head has the best sound quality available at this price. It doesn't need any extra dampening features thanks to the dampening ring on the inside. Very easy to tune and it doesn't come out of tune easily. Very durable and has very nice rebound.

                    The Aquarian Super-Kick III black drum head is unique. The tone is very dry, with no ringing overtones. The attack is crisp and powerful. There's no need for a pillow, or any other material in the bass drum. I had been using an Evans with a dampening ring, and the contrast between that and this Aquarian Super-kick is beyond considerable. The Aquarian has a depth and power of tone delivery that none of my previous kick drum heads have ever come close to, so in this case, you get what you pay for. I'm a recording artist, and prior to putting this head on, I always had to fuss with the mic position and E.Q. for the bass drum. I toil no longer! Unless you are terribly fond of pillows and other augmentations for bass drums, you must try this Aquarian head. And if you don't flip your wig, take your wig in for a check-up.

                        I don't usually do reviews but this head deserves it! It turned my cheapo bass shell into a real bass drum! That deep thud sound you're looking for... this will do it! No pillow needed! I'm amazed at the difference! Paired with the matching resonator head, sounds EXACTLY like I want a bass drum to sound! Looks great, sounds amazing!

                        Super-Kick is the correct name for this head

                        Comments about Aquarian Super-Kick III Black Drumhead:

                        I'll give this head a 9 overall only because the price is a little steep for a head. But I'm telling you as a decerning drummer for stuff that I like on my kit, this head is up in the top for me. I adore this product. Lastly, on an ebony finished kit, the black on black look is mean! I love it!
                        I bought this head and a full compliment of aquarian response 2 heads in black finish for my ebony finish Gretsch Catalina Maple Kit shell pack because I wanted to go all black on my kit. (I picked up a hi-velocity aquarian snare head in black also a while back.) I gotta say once I tuned it up, it made me smile. This head is simply amazing. I know it says in the info that you dont need to muffle your kick, but Im a big fan of stuffing my kick full(I use a whole comforter blanket.) so I havent tried it without muffling, but I would imagine it would still sound sweet.
                        Its Aquarian, nuff said.
                        I have to give this an 8 only because Ive used other Aquarian kick heads(performance II) and it was 2/3 the price and also a great head. But that being said, this is worth the money.

                        This bass head isn't just amazing it also looks great! It sounds like a punch to the chest which in my opinion is great. Highly recomended for metal/punk drummers. I also ordered a kick pad with it which makes it punchier. My only complaint is that its a little quiet but thats probably because i have it against a sound proofed wall. Overall great bass head that could be just a tad cheaper.GREAT!
                        Sounds absolutly amazing! Has a Power dot for extra durability and ITS BLACK!!!

                        This drumhead will make anyones bass drum sound like 80% better. It has internal muffling but you might need to get more muffling. Makes the drum sound more bassy will also more attack. Plus the black just looks cooler.
