Re: Aquarian Performance 2s
My experience has been that the response-2 lets the drum sing more than the performance-2, just as Aquarian states in their literature.
I also tried super-2's and they sounded good on my birch set, but they dented more easily than the response-2's.
I went with the coated response-2's and am very happy with the warm sound with just the right amount of overtone to cut through the band without micing. Have been gigging with them for a couple of months now and no dents.
