      Comments about Aquarian Modern Vintage II Drumhead:

      My professional drumming mentor told me to get this head. He is alway right! He had the Vintage II on a 12" rack tom and sounded like a deep 14" floor tom. I also have the Vintage II on my 14" floor tom and it is deep and sweet! My best friend guitarist who lets me play drum backup also liked the Vintage II and that is all the support I need!

      the warmth in tone I was looking for

      Comments about Aquarian Modern Vintage II Drumhead:

      I could tell you that this is a very warm sounding batter head with great response, but I think my guitarist's review would be better: THAT'S EXACTLY THE SURF TOM'S I'VE WANTED!" When your guitarist finally likes your sound, you know you're in business.

      These heads are morbidly obese!!!

      Comments about Aquarian Modern Vintage II Drumhead:

      If you are looking for super fat tones, but without the dull, lifeless thud of something like the Evans Hydraulics, this is your head! They are just as fat and warm as all get out, but still have a surprising amount of tone and sustain for their density...I would imagine these heads would last close to forever! I found them a bit too warm and fat for me, but if that's your thing, these are your heads! Lean and bright, they are not :)

          Replaced all heads on a 1981 Gretsch USA kit. Incredible deep and clean tone on the large floor tom. Very articulate and smooth attack. Quick decay.

          Great head. Have been wanting to try for a while, finally took the plunge! Have these on a 1981 Gretsch USA, and they look and sound great!! Don't really need any muffling. Clean deep tone without a lot of ring. Sound great with both wood tip and nylon tip. Have about 3 hours on the kit and heads barely look like they've been hit.

              Comments about Aquarian Modern Vintage II Drumhead:

              I bought these for my 12 and 14 inch toms. I have the small Gretsch jazz kit. The original heads were 5 years old and one ply Evans coated. The Evans were good, but a little old. I was skeptical of two ply for jazz. I wanted MV 1 but they only sold MV 2. Take the chance!!! These sound so good they will make you salivate. Think in terms of making your low end kit sound more like the higher end big Gretsch jazz kits. The sound is smoother, less growly than the originals. I feel like these are responsive at lower volumes, but fill the room with sound when you hit it hard. Give it a try!

                  I was not sure how these would sound. l had coated Evans 1 ply heads on my drums for five years and wanted to replace. They make modern vintage 1 but only had modern vintage 2. Even this was on backorder. It sounds deeper and like a bigger drum.

                    Comments about Aquarian Modern Vintage II Drumhead:

                    Great for both tom and snare (batter side) use. Able to handle and produce wonderful tone at all tensions. Very round tones, with fairly quick decay of overtones. Great for recording with either near head microphone or overheads. I bought them for use in jazz, but sound really warm and fat when tuned down so rock also. Versatile, and a new favorite of mine.

                      I wanted a drum head that would be more in line with jazz and found these to be a great head for jazz and so much more. The head handles both high and low tuning, and projects a very warm tone with low to moderate overtones. I love the very round tones, and fairly quick decay.
