Overview

The Aquarian Superkick III is a coated, single-ply, medium-weight, ebony bass drumhead with a power dot in the center for added reinforcement. The Superkick III bass drumhead produces a low-end, well-defined punchy sound due to Aquarian's patented Floating Muffling System, which is a narrow felt muffle ring attached to the backside of the drumhead.

Safe-T-Loc hoop
This hoop system prevents slippage inside the hoop so that the head does not de-tune during a performance and will not pull out. Tuning is consistent and the head stays in tune.

Sound Curve Collar Design
This design allows the Aquarian drumhead to seat perfectly on the bearing edge. No wrinkles even with loose tuning. It conforms instantly to any shell design and makes tuning fast, easy, and more accurate.

Triple Locking System
This unique system provides drummers with previously unheard of advantages in resonance and playability. First, holes are punched in the bottom of a "U" shaped channel, which has been formed in the drumhead. These holes allow the epoxy to flow into the "Safe-T-Loc" channel. Second, the "T-Ribs" that form the Safe-T-Loc channel prevent the epoxy and the drumhead, from slipping and pulling away from the hoop. Lastly, the Locking Shoulder acts as a "stop" to ensure the correct collar height for the drumhead.

  • 1-ply ebony coated with power dot

    Comments about Aquarian Super-Kick III Black Drumhead:

    Had an Evans 360 head before, I broke one of the two ply's within 2 months. No pedal patches needed with this head. Very durable with the power dot. I was going to buy new double pedals (currently using DW2000's) and the want/need to buy them has been put off, almost erased. Awesome rebound is in play while playing. This is even more "ground breaking/shaking" than Evans claims their 360 technology head to be.

        The head is coated with black paint making it a little stiff/plastic sounding. I'm still breaking it in so I'm not sure if it'll change or not.

          This drum head has the best sound quality available at this price. It doesn't need any extra dampening features thanks to the dampening ring on the inside. Very easy to tune and it doesn't come out of tune easily. Very durable and has very nice rebound.

              Comments about Aquarian Super-Kick III Black Drumhead:

              The Aquarian Super-Kick III black drum head is unique. The tone is very dry, with no ringing overtones. The attack is crisp and powerful. There's no need for a pillow, or any other material in the bass drum. I had been using an Evans with a dampening ring, and the contrast between that and this Aquarian Super-kick is beyond considerable. The Aquarian has a depth and power of tone delivery that none of my previous kick drum heads have ever come close to, so in this case, you get what you pay for. I'm a recording artist, and prior to putting this head on, I always had to fuss with the mic position and E.Q. for the bass drum. I toil no longer! Unless you are terribly fond of pillows and other augmentations for bass drums, you must try this Aquarian head. And if you don't flip your wig, take your wig in for a check-up.

                  I don't usually do reviews but this head deserves it! It turned my cheapo bass shell into a real bass drum! That deep thud sound you're looking for... this will do it! No pillow needed! I'm amazed at the difference! Paired with the matching resonator head, sounds EXACTLY like I want a bass drum to sound! Looks great, sounds amazing!

                  Super-Kick is the correct name for this head

                  Comments about Aquarian Super-Kick III Black Drumhead:

                  I'll give this head a 9 overall only because the price is a little steep for a head. But I'm telling you as a decerning drummer for stuff that I like on my kit, this head is up in the top for me. I adore this product. Lastly, on an ebony finished kit, the black on black look is mean! I love it!
                  I bought this head and a full compliment of aquarian response 2 heads in black finish for my ebony finish Gretsch Catalina Maple Kit shell pack because I wanted to go all black on my kit. (I picked up a hi-velocity aquarian snare head in black also a while back.) I gotta say once I tuned it up, it made me smile. This head is simply amazing. I know it says in the info that you dont need to muffle your kick, but Im a big fan of stuffing my kick full(I use a whole comforter blanket.) so I havent tried it without muffling, but I would imagine it would still sound sweet.
                  Its Aquarian, nuff said.
                  I have to give this an 8 only because Ive used other Aquarian kick heads(performance II) and it was 2/3 the price and also a great head. But that being said, this is worth the money.

                  Comments about Aquarian Super-Kick III Black Drumhead:

                  This bass head isn't just amazing it also looks great! It sounds like a punch to the chest which in my opinion is great. Highly recomended for metal/punk drummers. I also ordered a kick pad with it which makes it punchier. My only complaint is that its a little quiet but thats probably because i have it against a sound proofed wall. Overall great bass head that could be just a tad cheaper.GREAT!
                  Sounds absolutly amazing! Has a Power dot for extra durability and ITS BLACK!!!
