A very responsive 1-ply drumhead. The coated Aquarian Focus-X is great if you’re looking to reduce ringing overtones.
Made with a single 10mil ply of coated film, the Aquarian Focus-X is very sensitive and slightly warm, with a nice amount of tone that won’t get out of control. The underside inlay ring controls the sound, reducing sustain and controlling ringing overtones. These drumheads are great if you’re looking for responsiveness but with a slightly shorter sustain after the attack, and less of the ringing that comes with 1-ply drumheads. The inlay ring has small vent holes to allow some resonance, but does a good job of keeping things under control. 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.
The coated Aquarian Focus-X is warmer than the clear version, with a responsive coating that is great with both brushes and drumsticks.
