Default Where can I find this head at good price?

Hello, I am most likely buying a "Manhattan Cocktail" drum kit. Basically where the snare is attached to the kick.

1.) I need a Aquarian preformance head for the kick, size 14indh.

2.) ALSO QUESTION FOR SNARE: I don't want the snare to ring much at all, so I may need a heavy head of some sort. Recommend me heads that could help for the snare drum?

Thank you! -Ex Nihilo

Default Re: What Heads & extras would be a good choice?

1) never played Aquarian heads, sorry.
2.) I'd suggest to tune the snare quite low (It's a 10", isn't it?) So you dont get a "ringing" sound out of it, but its still a "mid" tone. But if you want a high tone, i would take moongel pads or take a Remo Resonant Control Ring (I think, thats what they are called). Nevertheless, take an Ambassador, DONT try a emperor on snare batter side, i did and i would not recommend that...
hope that'll help:)

Personally I wouldn't put a low sounding head on a 10" snare, the conflicting pitches will not blend well together. What you can do is buy just a regular 1 ply unmuffled head (or muffled if you want less ring) and tune it low.
