A controlled bass drumhead, giving a deep warm punch without overtones getting in the way, while still allowing for a small amount of mid and low-end sustain.
The Aquarian Impact III has a single ply of 10mil coated film, a center control dot for added durability, and 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 single ply construction allows for a little resonance, however the large muffle ring eliminates overtones – the sustain is short and very focused on the mid and low-end. The power dot gives more focus and a slightly increased attack, while the coating adds warmth, cutting the higher frequencies. This drumhead is perfect if you’re looking for a punchy, warm and focused sound, but don’t want to completely choke the sustain.
The Aquarian Impact III is the warmer middle ground between the sustain of the 1-ply Impact I, and the durability of the 2-ply Impact II.
