An extremely controlled bass drumhead, giving a focused punch without overtones getting in the way. If you’re looking for a quick and fat bass drum sound, this is a great choice.
The Aquarian Impact II has two plies of 7mil clear film, combined with a wide felt muffling ring attached to the underside of the head. The muffling ring is partially glued to the head, allowing part of it to “float” more freely as the drumhead is struck. The thicker construction and large felt muffling makes this head very controlled – a quick punch, with very short sustain and no overtones. The Aquarian Impact II has a big and slightly bright initial attack, followed by a short deep thud. This drumhead is perfect if you’re looking for a very tight and fat sound, without needing to add any other dampening inside the bass drum. The Impact II can handle heavier playing and delivers a good attack, although the muffled sound can get lost in very loud situations (use a microphone or click patch with this drumhead if you need a more cutting attack).
