        Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

        I bought these heads to use on a high-end birch kit. The sound I was getting with the Remo head combination I was using was never anything to write home about. The Response 2 Coated heads with Aquarian Classic Clear heads as the resonant heads gave the toms a really nice, tight punchy sound. No muffling is required and they tune up very easily.

              Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

              So since getting into drumming I have tried every head on the market on my toms. I have a 1975 sonor beechwood kit and its very finicky about heads. After all of the trial and error I have been through the remo coated emperors and vintage ambassadors seemed to bring out the most from these drums and of course these were also the first two heads I was told to try. I was actually looking around the musicians friend website, which has one of the best aquarian selections, and I ordered a set of the response 2 coated heads to give them a try. I was a little skeptical because of the much lower price and the fact that it wasn't one of the major two brands but i purchased them anyway. I was blown away when I put these heads on. I gorgeous warm and fat tone with a nice snappy attack and so easy to tune. I instantly fell in love with aquarian and thought Id try the bass drum next. I couldn't believe the instant finished tone I got out of he superkick II and regulator reso on the front. I am now an aquarian fan for life and its all I use! Definitely give these a try. You will not regret it. Also I cant believe how well these hold up to sticks. My coated emperors show stick hits immediately but these are much more difficult to scratch and tear up. An all around perfect drum head!!!!!

                Use these as a snare batter head

                By jenksdrummer

                from Oklahoma

                Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

                Aquarian has a "darker" sounding material to them, and the coating lasts longer. I used the Hi-Energy once, and it was too dead, but took a royal beating before I just got sick of the sound and lack of dynamics. I've tried a number of other heads and they either sound like poo, or don't last.
                These, as a snare batter head, are perfect to my ears. Just enough ring to cut through the mix, you can tune them up to get a real concussive pop from your snare that is pure love. Bonus is that these heads seem to also last longer on average than anything I've used by the other two major brands, and I've gone through a LOT of heads to find the right ones for me.
                I use these as a snare batter head. I play pretty loud with a lot of energy/drive, most of the time I'm doing rimshots to get that extra crack/pop, so I go through heads pretty quick.
                As mentioned above, these tend to last longer, tune up better, and overall they are a quality head. I give an 8 because I wish they lasted a BIT longer, but overall they are great.
                They're more expensive than competing options, but it balances out because they last longer. Still, the MSRP is nuts...no way it costs anywhere near that to make them - and this goes for all drum heads.

                Well Worth The Price

                By Dillon Forst

                from California

                Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

                Im a Technical Death Metal Drummer who like a unique sound. My Cymbals are custom sauda cymbals ( my endorsers) and I have a all maple OCDP Drum kit. I bought these heads to give them a try because I have always used aquarian super kick 2 bass heads, so I purchased all of these for my 10 12 high toms and 14 and 16 floor toms. THey produce great rebound and are warm and full of life. I get a really complex unique sound out of them and with my unique cymbal set up and drum set up these drum heads really accent my individuality as a drummer. You can find my drum videoes on youtube username 66Ganon and see how I play. These are well worth the price.

                from Kent, OH

                Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

                I play an all-maple Ddrum kit, and I use these on my toms (12 and 16) with Remo Ambassador reso heads. I just made the switch from clear Remo Emperors, and these are much more open and musical. The Emperors sounded very flat and cold in comparison. These heads need broken in pretty thoroughly, so I'd recommend tuning them up high and playing for a bit before trying to achieve your desired tuning. These are very dynamic, and both the strike tone and the resonance are clear and natural. These are louder than Emperors.

                Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

                Picked this up orignally for my DW snare. I found it had a tight tuning range, but that just may be my own perspective. I finally tuned it nice, but had to add a dampener ring to tone down the excessive ringing. Could work nice on your snare, but might have to add dampeners. Better for toms.

                Fast, Fat, and Warm

                Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

                Like a sassy gordita, these heads deliver saucily. They are loud, tight, warm, and thick, and they give a fat sound to your toms. They sound vintage and modern at the same time. Great for tom solos. I had some Aquarian Response 2 clears that I liked better for certain applications, but overall these sounded better for my Rock/Jazz style. I am going with Evans this time around because I want to see what the EC2 SST series has to deliver, but these are great heads in their own right. There's a reason these heads get 5 stars. Excellent value.
