A warm and controlled bass drumhead, giving a deep focused punch without overtones getting in the way. If you’re looking for a quick, warm, and fat bass drum sound, this is a great choice.
A controlled 2-ply drumhead, made with two 7mil plies, a special-coated top layer, and an added felt strip along the inside of the head. The Aquarian Modern Vintage II has an excellent warm sound thanks to the unique coating. Designed to have the look, feel, and sound of calfskin, the coating gives a much greater emphasis to the midrange and low-end frequencies. This is a great option if you’re wanting a shorter sustain that is low on overtones. More durable and controlled than the single ply Aquarian Vintage drumheads, the Modern Vintage II is great for situations that require heavier hitting.
The added felt strip is a vintage-era method for applying extra dampening to the bass drum. The resulting sound is focused, with slightly more projection and less overtones. Compared to the Super-Kick version of the Modern Vintage II, this drumhead has slightly more sustain and projection. The felt strip provides less dampening than the Super-Kick ring.
