Default Aquarian Studio X Type Snare Heads

I haven't really had time to experiment with heads but I recently put a hole in my 12" snare's head, so.... Time for a new one!

It's a Studio X Coated and I'm wondering what other heads might have a similar sound to it. The OCD part of me says, "What's the Remo equivalent?", but I'm open to other options. I'm guessing Powerstrokes or CS's would be similar?

Or should I just go with what's good?

I'm an Aquarian guy myself... I really like the Super 2 heads. But if you want to give Remo a shot - a coated PS3 would be the most similar to the Studio-X.

Eh, just go with what's good. Aquarian will last you much longer and IMO has a much better sound.

If you're really bent on changing it up though you could try the Focus-X head which might give you a similar sound to the Studio-X, or go 2 -ply with either the Super-2 or Response-2.

Thanks for the input, I think I'll stay with the Studio X since it's been giving me the sound I want. :)

I thought about a Remo CS for durability but I didn't put the hole in the middle it was off near the rim! We'll see, if I keep breaking it these I'll switch to a 2 ply variant :)

The Focus X has the muffler underneath the collar of the head. I have used the Studio X and the Focus X, and the Focus X is way drier, and just robs the drum of all life IMO. I use the Studio X coated with power dot, and that is a great head, especially for recording, but I use it live too. It lasts forever, and makes my snare drums sound warm and powerful. I also use unmuffled single-ply heads on a couple of my snares, but I always have a couple Aquarian Studio X's in my supply closet.

I really love it on my 12" Firecracker snare, it just gives this perfect pop, no unwanted overtones but still sounds lively :)
