Over the years I've used all sorts of mufflng techniques on toms to control what I consider to be too much ring. For some time I have taken the scissors to my old heads to make my own o-rings. Don't need them with these heads. I put them on my 12, 13, and 16 tom set-up. Tuned up easy and quick. Mic eq and set-up was painless. These heads make it easy to get that "fat" tom sound. If you are not concerned about micing the kit then the single ply Studio-X heads may be more to your liking as they are a bit louder and just a bit ringier.

After spending this much on new heads you'd expect these heads to at least produce similar tones between toms ... they don't. I've NEVER been more mad about a drum equipment purchase! I bought these to replace my 4 year-old Evans Hydraulics and I'm going to put my Evans right back on. First, the 10" tom is made of a cloudy material and is muffled like crazy in comparison to my 12" and 14" heads, which are made of a clear mylar . Second, birch is a naturally low sounding, very dense wood and I can't even get low tones out these heads. They produce that "slap" sound you get from loose heads even when they're tuned higher. I'm royally aggravated. If I could return these I would. The only upside is that I got a Hi-Energy snare head when I bought these, which is awesome, but, I'm jumping on the Remo band wagon as soon as possible. At least they make the same style head out of the same material. These only get 2 stars because they look cool.

I'm hooked

By caleb barnett

from biloxi

I have been a Remo fan for 12 years. Then my friend gave me an Evans onyx to tryout i was immediately changed by the sound it produced. My friend then told me if i liked Evans than i would love Aquarian! Sure enough i was i bought one 12" performance 2 clear, and another for my 14" floor tom. For the bottom I purchased Aquarian Super 2. I Tuned them using idrumtech on my phone and a pair of isolating head phones. they sound great! Im hooked for life.

Awesome for Rock

By Cayetano Garcia-Cachay

from Michigan

I bought these to replace the stock heads on my kit, and came across thse, so picked them up, and i'm ver impressed. These heads are meant for loose tuning (so mostly for rock and metal), which is of course, exactly for what I use them for. They have awesome tone, and especially the muffling ring works really well, But i also use them for other genres as well, such as jazz, or swing (sometimes swing combined with metal). And work pretty good for those too, BUY THESE HEADS.

Awesome!!

By Brandon Gonzalez

from Dallas, TX

I play Metal and have been for over 15 years. I have a Pearl Export Series kit. I was using Black Evans Suede heads and with some tuning I was able to get a decent sound but even with moon gel I was getting too much ring. After tons of research I thought I would give these a try and they are absolutely what I was looking for. I tune as low as possible and these give a quick, low, solid punch with very little ringing. I currently have pearl reso heads on my rack toms with the black Evans on the floor but I am most likely going to switch out the rack tom resos with the black evans as well. It took all of about 15 minutes per head to replace and tune to the sound I have been looking for. Definitely worth giving them a shot. I dont know how they will tune to a higher pitch but I can say for sure that if you want a low punch with little to no ringing without using 3rd party dampeners these are what you have been missing.

Do not underestimate Aquarian!!!

By Adam

from Iowa

First off, if you are playing rock or metal, buy these heads now!!! Don't even think about it, just do it!!! I'm able to throw these on, and tune all 4 of my toms in about 2 minutes, and they sound great!!! Lot's of low end and punch, and no after-ringning what-so-ever. They do make a noise after the initial hit, but it's nothing but great sounding resonance, not that annoying ring. i don't use any moongel on my toms because they don't need them. Can't say enough about these heads. Don't underestimate Aquarian, and buy these heads!!!

Simply Awsome!!!

By Rene

from El centro Ca

I got to say that these heads are the best heads I have ever purchased. I just tried them on my pdp x7 set and they completley blew me away, I usualy have a hard time tuning my drums and I've tried various brands from Remo to Evans and I have to say that they are simply the best. The best part is that you dont have any overtone whats so ever, no moon gels, no dampening rings, very easy tuning!!! They are defintely a must have item!!!

Brighter than I'd expected

By Mike Lovas

from Spokane, WA

The description of these heads implies that they're rich in tone. I suppose they are when compared to a non-coated, single-ply head. But, it was not the sound I expected. I wanted a warmer tone. So, I will replace these with the Aquarian single ply COATED heads. For the type of playing I do, those are the best heads, best sound I've ever found. I love the Aquarian heads, it's just a matter of finding the right ones. My suggestion: don't replace all your heads at one time. Buy one or two tom heads and test the sound. Mike

Better as resonant heads

By michael

from san diego, california

I tried these heads on my toms and had high hopes for a deep tone. I started playing them and they constantly came out of tune, but that might have been because they were brand new. Anyways, i kept playing them for about 2 weeks with my band and realized, everytime i went for a fill i could not hear my toms for the life of me. Even when i would practice by myself i could barely hear them even if i hit them hard. I then put my remo's back on and put these on as resonant heads creating an amazing sound.

One of the BEST Drumheads Ever Made

By Just Jared

from Olmsted Falls, Ohio

I've been disappointed with every tom head I've ever used until I discovered Aquarian. First I got Evans G2 coated to replace my stock heads. Despite how thick they were, they still needed insane amounts of muffling. A guitar center employee told me a little about the Aquarian Performance II heads, and I was back within a few days to pick them up. They're so thick that you get a great short sound out of them. They have the best attack and literally NO OVERTONES OR RING at all. Yet they still have wonderful tones and a wide tuning range. Very durable as well. I recommend these tom heads to anyone who is sick of endless ring and overtones. And the added bonus is they are some of the least expensive heads on the market. In a nut shell: Evans/Remo quality heads for a fraction of the price.
