Re: Question for Aquarians lovers (experts) :)
I use Aquarian exclusively and have tried many of their heads now.
I definitely echo sentiments that a standard "Texture Coated" will suit that snare well. I use a Black Beauty and I found that the "Response 2" (equivalent of a coated Emperor) suits that best but it's a 5" deep so a little different. I'm quite heavy hitting on my snare so it tames the ring a tiny bit and has a bit of extra strength.
Aquarians coating lasts forever, the glue on the hoops is faultless and they all tune up extremely easily (and stay tuned!). I really don't know why everyone isn't on them yet as they knock Remo & Evans out of the water as far as I'm concerned!
