A very controlled bass drumhead, giving a deep focused punch without overtones getting in the way. If you’re looking for a quick and fat bass drum sound, this is a great choice.
The Aquarian Super-Kick II has two plies of 7mil 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 thicker construction and felt muffling makes this head very controlled – a quick punch, with very short sustain and no overtones. The initial attack is slightly brighter than the Super-Kick I, followed by a short warm thud. 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 Super-Kick II can handle heavier 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).
