Aquarian’s Specialty Snare Drumheads are an essential component of your drumkit’s Kick & Snare dynamic duo
Aquarians Specialty Snare Drumheads were designed from the ground up to deliver a high-level of performance with unsurpassed clarity, articulation and durability for the professional on the stage or in the studio
The Hi-Energy snare drum batter is a clear, 10mil, single-ply drumhead with an extremely thin layer of proprietary Power Dot™ material “bonded” to the entire surface of the head. The center of the head is then reinforced with an additional small Power Dot™. Designed for heavy hitters who want a powerful sound and durability, the HE snare drum batter is also suitable for general purpose playing and responds with clarity and sensitivity to even the lightest strokes.
The Aquarian Difference
Incorporated into all Aquarian heads is a patented 360-degree Safe-T-Loc™ Hoop that eliminates slippage and detuning. The Aquarian Hoop makes it virtually impossible for a head to pull out or pucker, resulting in more consistent tuning with increased resonance.
Aquarian’s exclusive multi-ply vacuum tunning process helps reduce tone killing air pockets and dead spots by removing more of the air caught between plies. The result is a 2 ply head that is more responsive and resonant. The thickness of the drumhead film is a determining factor in how fast the head will vibrate. The thinner the material, the faster it vibrates, producing higher frequencies and more noticeable overtones. Thicker drumhead film generates lower relative frequencies. All of our heads are made exclusively from Aquarian’s ultra-responsive 3,5,7 and 10mil thick NuBRITE drumhead film.
The number of plies used to make a drumhead will affect the response and the timbre of a drum. Combining more plies together adds more mass resulting in fewer overtones that adds warmth, focus, and durability. Aquarian heads come in One, Two, Three, and Hybrid ply combination models.
