A very controlled and extremely thick bass drumhead, giving a quick deep punch without overtones getting in the way. If you’re looking for a focused head that can handle extremely heavy playing, this is a great choice.
The coated Aquarian Super-Kick 10 has two plies of 10mil film, combined with a narrow 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 extremely thick construction and felt muffling makes this head very controlled – a quick punch, with very short sustain and no overtones. This drumhead is perfect if you’re looking for a tight and fat sound, without needing to add any other dampening inside the bass drum. The initial attack is slightly bright, followed by a very short warm thud. The Super-Kick 10 can handle extremely heavy playing, 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).
The coated Super-Kick 10 is slightly warmer and has a more subtle attack than the clear version.
