A controlled bass drumhead, giving a deep focused punch without overtones getting in the way, while still allowing for some mid and low-end sustain.
The Aquarian Super-Kick I has a single ply of 10mil clear 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 single ply construction allows for some resonance, while the felt muffling eliminates higher pitch ringing overtones – the sustain is fairly short and very focused on the mid and low-end. The initial attack is slightly bright before the warmer sustain kicks in. This drumhead is perfect if you’re looking for a fat sound, but still want some sustain.
