Re: Aquarian Performance 2's or Response 2's (live unmiced gigs)?
"Probably" Response 2's...
I say "probably" because I am trying out a Performance 2 now on a 12" tom and it's a little too "dead" for me. i.e.-like a Pinstripe. Which is exactly what it is supposed to sound like as it has a control "ring" around it similar to a Pinstripe.
I wanted to try a Response 2 but they only had the Performance 2 where I went.
For a live unmic'd situation you probably want something with less "control" and more sustain....
