A refined drumhead to help convert any acoustic kit into an electro-acoustic hybrid.
The inHEAD acoustic/electronic hybrid drumhead by Aquarian delivers the best of both worlds: great sounding acoustic drums and the power and control that comes with the hi-performance FSR triggering of electronic drum sound modules. The secret to accurate acoustic snare drum triggering is IN this 14" electro-acoustic drumhead. The innovative, patent pending FSR inHEAD technology allows the drum and head to vibrate naturally to produce a full and resonant acoustic snare drum sound while electronically sensing even the lightest stroke of a drumstick.
FSR stand for "Force Sensing Resistor". FSR is a type of electrical circuit that responds to pressure or touch. The inHEAD imbeds this technology into a multi-ply head that is activated when pressure is applied to the actual drumhead surface. When struck by a drumstick, the durable top ply of the head presses on the reinforced bottom ply, completing the circuit and sending out an accurate and dynamic triggered impulse.
Unlike conventional drum triggers that only react to vibration and that are susceptible to sympathetic miss-firing, the inHEAD will only trigger when it senses it is being touched or played on by drumsticks, mallets, brushes or fingers. Aquarian calls it "Force Sensing Response" and it is only available in the Aquarian Electro-Acoustic inHEAD drum products.
