    If your looking to run coated 2 ply heads on your toms, look no further. Easy to tune, and great tone, with just the right amount of resonance.

      Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

      So since getting into drumming I have tried every head on the market on my toms. I have a 1975 sonor beechwood kit and its very finicky about heads. After all of the trial and error I have been through the remo coated emperors and vintage ambassadors seemed to bring out the most from these drums and of course these were also the first two heads I was told to try. I was actually looking around the musicians friend website, which has one of the best aquarian selections, and I ordered a set of the response 2 coated heads to give them a try. I was a little skeptical because of the much lower price and the fact that it wasn't one of the major two brands but i purchased them anyway. I was blown away when I put these heads on. I gorgeous warm and fat tone with a nice snappy attack and so easy to tune. I instantly fell in love with aquarian and thought Id try the bass drum next. I couldn't believe the instant finished tone I got out of he superkick II and regulator reso on the front. I am now an aquarian fan for life and its all I use! Definitely give these a try. You will not regret it. Also I cant believe how well these hold up to sticks. My coated emperors show stick hits immediately but these are much more difficult to scratch and tear up. An all around perfect drum head!!!!!

      Easy tuning

      By kevin bennett

      from Hesperia,Ca

      Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

      Ive tried Remo pinstripes,Emperors, Evans G2 clear and coated..I then bought these.. The Emperors are a favorite they tune fairly easy. The worst to me are the G2s they take forever to tune and they dont meet properly. By meeting I mean the two plies have a tie dye to them I dont really have much of an issue with the emperors with that..Anywho I really like these heads they are very easy to tune and sound great. I am going to get the superkick 2 and maaybe the hi energy snare great quality heads..theyd be the best if they were made in america..but mexico is close enough..lol

        These are for metal too !

        By Joseph Sears

        from Lady Lake, FL

        Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

        I've used several brands for my trusty 13 inch oak snare. I have been disappointed in how quickly the batter head losses it's tuneability after just one or two shows. Well,this isn't the case with Aquarian ! I've had the Coated Response 2 on the snare for two months now. Blast beats ring thru with no problem. If you are a heavy hitter, Response 2 heads can take the abuse !

        What can you say, it's aquarian!!

        By Spacyman

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

        Since the first time I've put Aquarian's Response 2 on my drums, It's been love. I love the roundness and the depth of the tone. It feels like any drum sounds better with them on. It really brings out the true specific caracter of the shells.

        I always try the new stuff Remo and Evens come up with, but they always lack of something in comparaison to Aquarian's products. Personally, the most attractive quality of R2's, beside my love for their sound (which I admit, is something very personal) is how the heads keep their tones so much longer than any other product I've used.

        I usually use Clear heads but I just ordered and installed a set of coated R2's for the sake of testing, and it really offers the sound you seek in a coated head, round and warm with that signature tone it gives to your toms. Lot of low ends and a very smooth, controlled sound.

        Sure, I'll go back to clear heads because of tonal preference (call it the wow factor) but seriously. you can't go wrong with these.

        Great Product!

        By James Parker

        from Birmingham, Alabama

        Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

        Every Aquarian product I've tried has always exceeded my expectations. These heads sound amazing, they tune with ease, and the coating is the best hands down. I tune to specific notes on my toms and these heads respond to a wide range of tunings. This head also gives the snare a great dry crack when tuned high. These are just as good, better imo, as any Remo or Evans product. If you try these heads you will not be disappointed. Aquarian for life!

        Use these as a snare batter head

        By kannibul

        from Oklahoma

        Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

        Aquarian has a "darker" sounding material to them, and the coating lasts longer. I used the Hi-Energy once, and it was too dead, but took a royal beating before I just got sick of the sound and lack of dynamics. I've tried a number of other heads and they either sound like poo, or don't last.
        These, as a snare batter head, are perfect to my ears. Just enough ring to cut through the mix, you can tune them up to get a real concussive pop from your snare that is pure love. Bonus is that these heads seem to also last longer on average than anything I've used by the other two major brands, and I've gone through a LOT of heads to find the right ones for me.
        I use these as a snare batter head. I play pretty loud with a lot of energy/drive, most of the time I'm doing rimshots to get that extra crack/pop, so I go through heads pretty quick.
        As mentioned above, these tend to last longer, tune up better, and overall they are a quality head. I give an 8 because I wish they lasted a BIT longer, but overall they are great.
        They're more expensive than competing options, but it balances out because they last longer. Still, the MSRP is nuts...no way it costs anywhere near that to make them - and this goes for all drum heads.

        Well Worth The Price

        By Dillon Forst

        from California

        Comments about Aquarian Texture Coated Response 2 Drumhead:

        Im a Technical Death Metal Drummer who like a unique sound. My Cymbals are custom sauda cymbals ( my endorsers) and I have a all maple OCDP Drum kit. I bought these heads to give them a try because I have always used aquarian super kick 2 bass heads, so I purchased all of these for my 10 12 high toms and 14 and 16 floor toms. THey produce great rebound and are warm and full of life. I get a really complex unique sound out of them and with my unique cymbal set up and drum set up these drum heads really accent my individuality as a drummer. You can find my drum videoes on youtube username 66Ganon and see how I play. These are well worth the price.
