Default Aquarian Studio X

Anybody using these? I think I'm going to try these out on my Mapex Pro M kit. If you have used them, let me know what you think/thought of them. Thanks!

They are single 10 mil ply with an out of the bearing edge underside muffling ring which mean the sound isn't muffled at the bearing edge so it offer good tone and resonance and the light muffling ring remove just the right amount of overtone.

gorgeous heads. for me, my high tom dented too soon than i would have liked, but i think that was because

of my tendency to hit harder than needed. but aside from durability, they really are great heads.

I had the same problem with them denting.

I now use these heads on all my toms. Whether or not you like them will depend on what you are playing and what sound you are looking for. I served my drumming apprenticeship back in the 1980s and strove for that dull Gaddish tom thud. At that time I used Evans Blue Hydraulic heads on all my toms and, at the time, was very satisfied with the sound. As time wore on, however, and tastes changed somewhat, I wanted a head that was slightly more responsive to the stick and that could take a slightly higher tuning without losing its tone but would still have that balance between dullness and resonance. I have found Studio X to be the perfect solution and they provide the sound I am looking for with the appropriate level of responsiveness. I am also using the Aquarian Superkick II on my bass drum - and it is also a great head - it gives sufficient tone and depth so that no internal muffling is necessary. I confess, however, that I think I will always be a Remo guy for my snare drum. Nothing sounds better!!

We use these on a set of DWs at my church and they sound awesome with those drums. When tuned well they have the perfect amount of resonance for that kit IMHO.

That being said, when I tried them on my Ludwig rockers set at home they weren't what I needed to get a decent sound. I ended up with a heavier muffling performance II series in order to cut out more overtones.

As far as I'm concerned, the Studio X line is a high quality head for any decent to high quality drums.

great heads -- they can make even the crappiest drums sound good. I used them on my Tama Rockstars and they sounded great. YOu can tune them deep and they hold up quite nicely. They are great looking heads as well -- i love those black rings. My only complaint is that they do tend to dent quickly. I have not yet tried them for my other kits -- i have been using Evans for those, but maybe i will try the studio x's on the DW one of these days.
