I'm running Super 2s over classic clears on my Ludwig classic maple kit. They sound very good. Very clear and punchy. Lots of bottom end.

Is it really the double-thin ? Double-Thin were discontinued about a year and half ago. There's the Power-Thin and the Super-2 which are different from each other.

Anyway, any Aquarian head combo can sound nice with the proper instalation and tuning. Dont forget not the seat and crack Aquarian heads, they dont need to because it does use the same epoxy as REMO or EVANS.

I'm liking them. I've been playing the DWs lately. I'm gonna try Evans heads on the Ludwigs and see how that goes.

oh, I didn't realize they were discontinued. I was watching a video from Aquarian with Roy Burnes about drumset tuning cause I got it way back when I bought my first set but had never watched it, and he samples all of the Aquarian heads briefly and I saw the duobe-thins and liked the sound so I thought I'd ask around...oh well, back to the drawing board, sigh.

Don't go back to the drawing board, the Super-2s have basically replaced the double thins from what I understand. They are slightly thinner than a regular 2-ply head. I have the coated Super-2s over Classic Clears on my birch Starclassic, I will never go back to Remo or Evans after playing these. I feel like they are punchier and have more of a rounded sound than Emperors or G-2s. Give them a try.

Exactly, Super-2 replace the the Double-thin but the only slight difference is the upper ply is 5 mil and the second ply is 7 mil while the double-thin were, upper ply 7 mil and second ply 5 mil. Aquarian said they were more open and resonant than double-thin.

ok, i'll try those, I definitely want more resonance. I hate get flat "thuds" of a head. It just makes it sound dead to me.

I running the clear Super 2s with out any type of muffling. They sound good. The sing out and resonant. Minimal overtones, They tend to wear a bit faster than Evans heads.

Aquarian heads do not need tro be broken in. Pitch them up and play em. Check them the next day. They will probably need a little fine tuning and then they usually stay in tune pretty well,

In fact, the Evans web site doesn't recommend breaking in Evans heads either.

Quote:
Start by preparing the drum for re-heading. Wipe off the bearing edges (fig. 1) and inside the shell. Place the new head on and spin it around to be certain it fits loosely onto the shell. Its a good idea to place a drop of petroleum jelly onto the threads of the tension rods (fig. 2). Place the counter hoop (fig. 3) onto the head and hand-tighten the tension-rods until they makefull contact with the counter hoop. Rather than over-tensioning the head to force it to break in, the best tuning method is to bring the drumhead up to your desired pitch, or slightly higher, play on it for a while to let it break in naturally, then fine-tune it again.

The quote is from the Evans web site, but the same goes for Aquarian. Don't over stretch the heads. That's been talked about quite a bit on here.
