So you want to take your snare drum performance to a pro level? Well you're definitely on the right path by coming to this section. Founded in 1980, Aquarian snare drum heads are the go-to choice of countless heavy hitting drummers. In an industry ruled by brands who have been mainstays in the percussion world for over half a century, Aquarian's commitment to innovation and quality has placed them among the elite. From Lamb of God's Chris Adler to Black Sabbath's Tommy Clufetos and April Wine's Roy Nichol, these artists are only a few of the many who prefer Aquarian snare heads to anything else on the market.
Whether you're looking for a resonant (bottom-side) head or a batter (top-side) head, Aquarian specializes in both. The only thing you need to consider is what kind of snare drum sound you prefer for the style of music you lay the beat for. Drummers who play lighter styles like jazz and acoustic rock will love the Classic Clear Snare Bottom Drumhead: a clear, single-ply resonant head that's very strong and produces a tone that stays loud and punchy even after countless performances.
Or, if you're after a full, articulate sound with short sustain, check out the Focus-X Snare Drumhead. Boasting a satin finish texture coating and a vented muffling ring that's tucked into the hoop on the head's under-side, this head is versatile and sounds great when played with both brushes and sticks. Another head that can handle a diverse range of music styles is the New Orleans Special Drumhead. Featuring a thin layer of Power Dot material on top, this durable drumhead is ideal for blues, southern funk and even second line drumming.
And every Aquarian snare drum head mentioned above also happens to be a top seller, so you better believe you're in for a treat. The simple truth is that everyone at Aquarian loves drumming just as much as you do, and it shows in each and every snare drum head they design. Live in concert or laying down tracks in the studio, Aquarian has you covered in more ways than one.
