The Aquarian Hi-Frequency Coated is one of the thinnest batter drumheads available, and is very bright and responsive. These drumheads are great for full and open sounding drums with a lot of sustain, for both snare drums and toms.
Aquarian Hi-Frequency Coated drumheads are made with a single ply of 7mil coated film. These very thin drumheads are perfect for full and open sounding drums that ring out. Toms will sing when tuned high, and will rumble when tuned low. These drumheads are also a great choice for very sensitive snare drum playing, with both sticks and brushes… Aquarian Hi-Frequency Coated heads are extremely responsive, making them well suited to low and medium volume situations where even small articulations need to be heard.
Compared to the clear version, Aquarian Hi-Frequency Coated drumheads are a little more subtle and warm (although still bright compared to most other drumheads). On snare drums, these heads will give a lot of overtones and sustain to add colour to your drum sound. To reign in the sustain and overtones, you can add Moongels or other dampening when needed.
As a resonant tom drumhead, The Aquarian Hi-Frequency Coated is a good choice to give a slightly warmer sustain compared to regular clear resonant tom heads. The thin single ply will allow a nice moderate amount of sustain, without being overbearing.
If you’re wanting to hear the full sound of your drums without choking the sustain, these drumheads are a great choice.
As well as Clear and Coated, Aquarian Hi-Frequency drumheads are available in Gloss Black and Gloss White varieties. The Gloss Black and Gloss White versions have an almost identical sound to the clear Aquarian Hi-Frequency heads, and they look great as a matched set across all drums.
