Super Kick Series
Often imitated, never duplicated, the Super Kick line of bass drumheads is an industry best seller and a favorite among those drummers, drum techs and recording engineers who want a musical,controlled bass drum sound without the use of blankets, pillows or external muffling.The patented “Floating Muffling System” uses a narrow band of acoustic felt for a pre-dampened, yet natural sound. The felt moves and “breathes” with the drum head while eliminating unwanted hi-end frequencies and boosting low-end punch. Superkicks are available in single, double and hybrid ply versions with clear, texture or vintage coated finishes. All Superkick models deliver superior bass drum tone control without all the extra work.
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.
