This is a nice quality resonant head for your bass drum. I have a Gretsch Catalina Maple drum set and I played death metal. Compared to the stock room ahead this one is deeper and thicker sounding. I tune my bass drum really low and it sounds just fine with this head. I also record all of our rehearsals and with the microphone just inside the hole it really isolates the microphone well. It is damped well enough where I don't even need a pillow in the drum. It also seemed to have giving me a little bit more rebound and I can play double bass even quicker. I usually play without a front head but with a gig coming up I had to put a front head on it so we could put our logo on it. But in the end, it really added a lot of low-end in the room, if you stand back from the kit it sounds like it's Mic'ed up.

AQUARIAN FORCE II
BASS RESO HEAD BLACK
Non Ported Single ply 10 mil
Vs.
REMO POWER STROKE III COATED
Single PLY 14 mil Non Ported

ON PEARL REFERENCE 22 X18 KICK DRUM WITH EVANS EMAD CLEAR BATTER

I replaced the stock Remo Power stroke III coated as a Resonate with a Aquarian Force II Resonate using a PDP Dual Chain pedal with a rubber mounted beater. The Remo Power Stroke III clear was not the batter in con junction with the Remo Power Stroke III coated as a Resonate. The Evans EMAD clear batter set the stage. You know how it is when you want more; here I go. Very tricky is the sound difference between the Remo Power Stroke III coated and the Aquarian Force II. When I de tuned the Remo Power Stroke III resonate before I changed to the Aquarian Force II, that brought a little more concert kick and depth to the kick drum. I know because I recorded it. I record each of my drums separately especially when I change heads.

At the point that I replaced my Resonate head on my Reference kick which I only had since the end of May 2017, I just may have become more comfortable with the kick drum by the time I replaced the Resonate, and my foot pedal action, leg strength, coordination, could have just come together with other play action: and I want to believe the change sounds better. ( Cause I want more ).
There is a higher pitch of Resonance; a secondary tone; occurs when the sustain declines from the attack.
The one difference that I did notice between the Remo Power Stroke III coated as a resonant and the Aquarian Force II resonant was the Aquarian had better sound on the soft kicks over the Remo. That just might be the nature of the 10 mil single ply over the 14 mil single ply of Remo.

          I bought a custom made kit and they supplied it with this head, I wouldn't change it over anything else and before it was only Evans heads.

          Comments about Aquarian Force II Resonant Bass Drum Head:

          I use an EMAD2 batter and used to use an Evans reso head too. This allowed for no internal muffling. When I got my new DWs, this had the same construction as the Evans and a port ring supplied in case I decided to use a port... at 2/3 the price. It turned out to be exactly the same sound I wanted with no port (great since I hate them). Good deal Aquarian. Note these heads in black used to be more like charcoal gray as if they were painted inside. They're now gloss black like P3s/most stock reso heads. Nifty new logo too.

          Comments about Aquarian Force II Resonant Bass Drum Head:

          I got these to match the Aquarian II batters. I like them. I don't have much to compare to other than stock heads. we all know the aren't any good most of the time. I was using them without the cut-out for about two years(great sound) prior to getting my mic set. I wasn't getting the sound I was looking for(using a mic) before the cut. So I tried the cut and really didn't hear much of a difference(that was a good thing). But it did allow me to get the mic placement I needed for the sound I wanted.

          Comments about Aquarian Force II Resonant Bass Drum Head:

          I originaly just needed a bass drum head with a port so I could record some drum tracks. I've always liked Aquarian so I picked up one of these. This head sounds so amazing on my kit. I couldnt believe how loud it is. I can get the smack sound that I like on my bass drum while getting the low bass sound with NO overtones. I now will exclusively use this head for all applications (Live, Practice, stage)I am highly pleased with it. This product is worth the money, Thanks Aquarian!

          I married this head with a super kick II and man this is a great head to compliment the super kick II. I use it in my 1964 20in. Ludwig Bass drum and it really made my bass drum come alive. Great sound. I Highly recommend it.

          I really Liked the way This Head made my Mapex saturn Sound and Look. It Tuned up nice and easy .(BTW if u use a Drum dial be carefull about not moving it around much while tuning cuz it will scratch it easy) I also added on two Black port holes and that alone just gets me on the way it looks. Its almost like making a ford into a BMW its that much of a improvement. 10 stars all the way
