Coated Reflector Series
14″ Texture Coated Reflector Snare Drum Batter The Texture Coated Reflector Snare Drum Batter ( TCREF) is about response and feel. It is about tone with control. The wide tuning range makes this head versatile and suitable for a wide range of musical styles. Every note remains identifiable when metrical precision is a must. The bottom ply of this snare drum batter head uses a heavy-duty 10mil drumhead film which is denser and brighter than our standard drumhead material; the top layer uses Aquarian’s Classic Nu-Brite 7 mil drumhead film for warmth. The result is a head that is a 2 ply head that is warm and musical at low volumes, bright and more articulate when played hard. This unique 17 mil REFLECTOR hybrid combination is what makes this head both durable and deliberate! The NEW, slightly thicker than standard, SLATE GREY TEXTURE COATING, compliments the current Reflector heads and helps to warm up snare drum overtones. 2 Ply, 17 mil Hybrid Drumhead Film Combination Slate Grey Texture Coating Durable.

Texture Coated Reflector Snare Drum Batter Explained
Most of our good ideas come from the players who endorse our products. After Eric Moore requested the original Aquarian Reflector Series, the next obvious update was a true Texture Coated Snare Batter.

This head is about response and feel. It is about tone with control. The wide tuning range makes this head versatile and suitable for a wide range of musical styles. Every note remains identifiable when metrical precision is important.
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.
