Aquarian offers a wealth of different heads to choose
from within their expansive catalogue and here we
take a look at two different single-ply styles.
Our drums will always benefit from a regular change
of heads, especially if you change both the batter
and resonant heads. Too often we fail to change
the resonant head because it doesn’t take quite the
same beating as the top head, which is true, but
nonetheless, the it still undergoes a good deal of
stress and does produce much of the ‘tone’ that we
want to hear from the drum.

Studio X heads are 10mm
weight and are fitted with
a lightweight internal
damping ring that helps
overtones, but still allows
the drum to speak with a
warm open sound.
