Aquarian Modern Vintage Medium drumheads give a wonderful warm tone, a full sustain, and a good amount of responsiveness – perfect for low and medium volumes, and studio recording.
A single ply drumhead, made with one 10mil special-coated layer. For a thinner drumhead, the Aquarian Modern Vintage Medium has a nice warmth thanks to the unique coating applied to the topside. Designed to have the look, feel, and sound of calfskin, the coating gives a much greater emphasis to the midrange and low-end frequencies.
The Modern Vintage Medium has a good sustain that is perfectly suited for open, full sounding drums. Excellent at low and medium volumes, this drumhead will respond well to sensitive playing with both sticks and brushes. The Modern Vintage Medium will give a more open, deeper fat sound when tuned low, and a warm fuller sound when tuned high. Compared to the Aquarian Modern Vintage Thin, this version is slightly more durable, and gives a slightly warmer sound. If you prefer the openness and responsiveness of thinner drumheads, but want a warmer sound, this is a perfect choice.
Note: The American Vintage series is the same as Modern Vintage, with a slightly larger hoop designed to fit older (vintage) drums.
