Default new bass head doesn't fit right...

I just purchased a 20" Aquarian Super Kick 1 head for a Yamaha Stage Custom bass drum. When I went to put it on, it seemed a bit bigger around than the one that that was on before. Then when I put the wooden hoop over it, it was a hair too big for the hoop. I squeezed the hoop on, and put the hoop clamps on, but it still seemed like it was too big. The sound wasn't bad, but it still seems like it's not fitting perfectly. Has anyone else seen this kind of thing before. I just figured it was a standard size and should fit. When I put a SK1 head on another kit last year it fit great. Like I said, it sounds alright, but I don't want to damage the hoop or the bass drum with an ill-fitting head.

I have had this problem just recently with my powerstroke 3's and I have been told to just leave it and it sounds fine it just looks weird from close range.

mine does the same thing, turns out the hoop on my Remo Powerstroke 3 is a tid bit out of round, so when i tighten it, the hoop doesnt touch the rim all the way around.

but ive gotten a killer sound out of it so im not that bothered by it

Lot of people complained about the fact that Aquarian Heads were very tight fit and even sometimes too tight that it would damage the finish so to answer the problem, Aquarian has just increased the diameter of their heads little bit. I doubt it will cause any damage to your kit. Have you ever seen a Gongbass head ?

It will be fine and enjoy the sound.
