A very responsive 1-ply drumhead. The clear Aquarian Focus-X is great if you’re looking to reduce ringing overtones.
Made with a single 10mil ply of clear film, the Aquarian Focus-X is very sensitive and fairly bright, with nice tone. The underside inlay ring controls the sound, reducing sustain and controlling ringing overtones. These drumheads are great if you’re looking for a shorter sustain after the attack, with less of the ringing that comes with 1-ply drumheads. The inlay ring has small vent holes to allow some resonance, but the sound is still controlled, especially considering this is a single ply head. Even with the sustain controlled, the 1-ply construction means that there is still a good initial tone when this head is hit. Great for low and medium volume playing, if responsiveness is needed but overtones are not.
