A thin, very large control dot covering almost all of the drumhead gives the Aquarian New Orleans Special a low to moderate sustain, while remaining responsive to lighter playing.
This is a 10mil single ply clear drumhead that can produce a balanced, fat, and controlled sound when tuned low, with slightly more tone and character if tuned higher. The very large control dot means overtones will never ring out of control. The Aquarian New Orleans Special is a great drumhead for low and medium volume playing if you’re looking for sensitivity, but without the overtones. The control dot also adds extra durability, meaning this head can handle some harder hitting if required.
