The Reflector line of heads, inspired by drumming great Eric Moore, feature a new 2 Ply Hybrid Film combination that enhances the stick attack when played at higher volumes. A NEW 17 mil Aquarian Hybrid film combination makes Reflector heads more articulate, deliberate and durable. The bottom ply uses a black heavy-duty 10mil drumhead film which is denser and brighter than our standard drumhead material. A top layer of Aquarian’s Classic Nu-Brite 7 mil drumhead film is added for warmth. The result is a two ply head that is warm and musical at lower volumes; brighter and more articulate when played hard. This unique 17mil hybrid combination has a black reflective appearance and is meant to be played HARD and FAST and with PASSION!
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.
