Aquarian Response 2: Best drum head

By Anan Baransy

from USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

Not only do they look good, but they produce a full deep and rich sound with amazing sustain. They are perfect for 13 inch toms or smaller! As for 14 and bigger diameter drums, I recommend aquarian performance heads with the dot in the middle, because these heads might have too much sustain/ring for bigger toms. These heads took less than 10 minutes to tune and they simply sound amazing. I tried many other brands but nothing comes even close. I use these with classic clear black resonant heads and they make a perfect combinantion.

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    Got myself a set of Aquarian Response II clears for my 8", 10" and 13" toms. The 8" doesn't have much resonance due to its small size, but all of the toms sound absolutely incredible with these on the batter and Aquarian Classic Clears as resos! These heads are great for me since I play a wide variety of music, they sound fantastic with rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, pop, you name it!

    Decent heads

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    Just threw these on my Yamaha YD after having some various old heads on there from the previous user. This was my first time changing heads and I did a bunch of studying before I put them on and got them all equally-tempered and tuned pretty well. The heads are loud and reverberous, clear, and watery. The floor tom is thundering, where as before it sounded papery and weak. Overall, though not amazing or ground-breaking, they are simply a decent 2-ply head with tons of great overtone and clear, cutting tone. I am using the 12, 13, and 16 tom batter heads. Haven't tried the snare head yet so I can't compliment. Also note, as I said earlier, these were the first set of heads I have used and mainly bought them because of the good reviews on this site. Next time I may try Evans because I'm curious what they are like. That being said, these heads are a great replacement head. Recommended if you're looking for more cut-through in your toms.

    simply the best

    By Bob da Drumma

    from Connecticut

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    I've been playing since 1972 and this is simply the best snare head that I've ever owned! I can tune it however I want to and it still sounds great! When I record there are no unwanted overtones. Snare buzz is low, but enough exist to give you a great sound I found that I liked to tune my bottom head loose to get the best sound. When I get close to the rim I'm in heaven! Rim shots are loud and distinct with only a light attack. The name "Response" says it all! I love it when I Tune it loose, I get a great sound with almost no ring.

    Blows G2's away

    By Rythym Devil

    from Putney, VT

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

    I just chnged from Hydros to a more open sound, due to my drums getting muddied in the room volume at the club I play at. I bought a set of Aquarian Response 2's and Evans G2's, put an R@ on my 12" and G2 on my 13". I like the look of the G2, but sound is what its all about right?The Aqaurian heads have a much fuller sound, with the perfect amount of overtones. The G2 was close, but ultimately had a tinny sound with the stick contact, and a little throaty. Bottom line Im impressed with the Response 2s sound, stick response and seating, very easy tuning.

        I put these head's on a Mapex Armory set and they sounded great.Several month's later,bought a new set of DW performance series.Used the stock head's,remo coated pinstripes,and some evans g2's,all so so,nothing great.Even preferred the Mapex to the DW's.Just put these on my tom's,with Evans G1's on the bottom(like the Mapex)100% improvement.I'm usually an Evans guy ,but i love these heads,would strongly suggest you giving these a try.Sound is very warm,i do use some dampening too,as i hate ringing ,these head's sound amazing,and feel very durable.1 year on the Mapex set,still sound great.Hope this help's someone get the tone they are looking for.I love "em

          Aquarian are great drumheads. I get about three months of playing and their dead since I play about every weekend these heads are worth the money. More drummers need to change their heads more often I see others have them on for 6 months or a year. If you play like I do three months is tops then change them out you will thank me !

              Nice, educated, and very helpful staff. I had to special order all of my drum heads before going into the studio. They were all on back order but they were able to get them in stock and shipped to me in plenty of time. There prices are great. I was expecting to spend much more on my heads than expected and I was very happy when I was told my total. I strongly recommend Musicians Friend for all of your musical needs, especially if it's an out of stock item.

              I just put these heads on my kit and I'm fairly impressed. The sound was exactly what I was looking for and the head is very durable. Now my sound is just right for playing conditions, not too much overtone but not too little. It can take a lot of hard hits. Good buy.

              Response 2 Clear Heads

              By britishwalker65

              from Northern Virginia

              Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

              Aquarian Response 2 Clear Heads have made my day. After trying numerous brands and types these heads have finally given my somewhat dubious mid-level 80's Pearl's some character.My largest mounted tom, a 10x13 was dead and now is alive!My floor tom previously sounded as if I was hitting a hollow log with a rubber mallet, but now has a nice deep tonal quality and I am impressed, and all with very little tension as advertised.You can barely crank these heads down and they sound sweet, which will allow for multiple tuning levels, as they can be tuned up higher as I did with my 7x12.Can't comment on playing at gigs, as I just play at home, but would bet these heads would sound just as good live. Low tension tuning may require some added attention, and the clear heads do mark up easily, but the sound quality is worth any compromise made.Changing to these heads can improve a lack luster sounding set of drums, and enables a wider range of tuning capabilities, all in all, a win win deal at a reasonable cost.Great heads Aquarian

              Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

              i just wanted to say i am a drummer(4 years) but i havent used these heads. modern drummer festival 2005 features cris adler of lamb of god, and he uses these heads. i know there are a lot of factors inbetween the sound onstage and what i hear through my tv set, but these heads sounded great. deep with out hardly any overtones,they sounded best on the floor toms(16x16 18x16)so if youre not sure, remember that chris adler uses them!

              Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

              I've had a set of these heads on my Pearl Export for about three years. I gig just about every weekend. After using Remo Pinstripes, Emperors, and Evans G2's, I have to say the sound with these heads is much better. I get compliments on how good my drums sound all the time. The quality is second to none. I use heavy rock sticks and these take the abuse night after night! You will not be dissapointed with any Aquarian product!

              I was gonna use Remos, but ended up using these, because I was talked into Aquarian Response II's. They do make a crummy drumkit sound good, especially with some muffler rings, and some Power-thins on the bottom. If you're really looking for some quality heads go out and buy these right now!

              Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

              I purchased the Response 2 heads for my 13 and 16 inch tom for my Tama Rockstar Custom. Took awhile to get them tuned. Can definitely say that the heads can be tuned to all various pitches with no problem. Highly resonant. A little bit too much to my liking, so I added some Aquarian Rings to them and they sound quite punchy. These heads are really great for someone on a budget, since Remo and Evan heads are a little bit pricier

              Comments about Aquarian Response 2 Drumhead:

              I have clear Response 2 heads on my Masters BRX kit and they are amazing. They are a perfect match for the all birch shells of the Pearl BRX. If you like clear 2 ply heads these are an excellent choice.
