The Aquarian Force I Texture Coated is a thin, resonating bass drumhead giving you an open, balanced thud with good sustain.
The Aquarian Force I coated bass drum head is made with a single ply of 10mil film, allowing the drum to resonate very well. The added underside inlay ring has small ventilation holes, giving a slightly focused sound that stops overtones getting out of control, while still allowing for very good sustain. The end result is more of a focus on the fundamental note, with less strange ringing overtones affecting your bass drum sound.
The Aquarian Force I is a responsive bass drum head. Perfect for low and moderate volume playing, it will allow you to hear the fullness of your bass drum shell. Tune this drumhead low for a fat smooth rumble, or increase the tension for a cutting boom. The thinner ply means this bass drum head is very sensitive, which is great for lighter playing or adding dynamic range to your bass drum. The Aquarian Force I is great as a studio recording drumhead: leave it open for a deep resonating boom, or use dampening to control things. For louder live playing environments, use a microphone on the bass drum so your kick is not lost in the mix.
The coated Aquarian Force I is warmer than the clear version, with a more subtle attack. The Force I can also be used as a resonant bass drum head, giving an open sound with a very nice longer sustain, especially with a smaller port hole. Tip: see this article for more info on bass drum port holes.
