What are the differences between Aquarian Bass Drum Heads?
Aquarian offers three types of standard (drumkit) resonant bass drum heads and two kinds of marching bass drum heads:
Classic Clear (plain):
A single ply, medium weight drum head available in glossy white or black. Ideal for the resonant side of the bass drum. Classic Clear heads produce a wide-open full sound with plenty of attack. (Very similar to Remo Ambassador heads)
A clear, single ply, medium weight bass drum head. Full Force™ drum heads feature an acoustically “vented” muffling ring that is tucked into the hoop on the back side of the head. The muffling ring has special “tone holes” that allow the ring to move and resonate with the head. (Very similar to Remo Powerstroke III heads)
These single ply, resonant bass drum heads feature Aquarian’s patented “Floating Muffling System”. They are perfect companions for the Super-Kick™ and Impact™ series batter heads. Regulator™ heads are available in Video Gloss black or white, and they feature a focused, punchy sound that does not sacrifice the low-end fundamental of the drum. (Unlike any other head on the market)
A powerful, punchy and direct sounding bass drum head featuring Aquarian’s patented “Floating Muffling System”. The sound of this drum head really projects because the felt muffling “floats” and does not touch the bearing edge. The drumhead collar is free to vibrate in unison with the drumshell to preserve the low-end. This unique drumhead is made with Aquarian's new Power-Play™ film. The Articulator™ is available in white or black.
A full, open, traditional bass drum sound with great resonance and projection. It also features Aquarian’s new Power Play™ film. A big sounding drumhead. The Powertone™ is available in white or black.
