Default Super Kick I

I was just curious as to how the durability was on these? I haven't tried Aquarian heads before and I'm hearing a lot of good things about them, especially their kicks.

Just want some solid opinions.

It's an excellent head. I never have had durability problems because I always use a Remo Falams pad. I have been using the SK 1 and 2 for about 8 years now.

Totally agree, very durable. I also use a stick on pad but Aquarian's version.

If I'm not mistaken I think the Super Kick 2 is two ply and the SK1 is one ply. It can make a big difference between a "boom" and a "punch."

I used to play on a SK1 and I really liked it.

Un-mic’ed run a single ply to leave more overtones in it and it will sound louder. YES the SK1

If that's the case which one has the boom and which one has the punch?

My guess is... I hope I'm right..

SKI = BOOM
SKII = Punch

Both have boom and punch, the SK1 will have a little more boom, the second ply on the SKII really deadens the sound. Been using an SK1 since they came out 10+ years ago never a durability problem, I do run an aquarian patch on it.

For an unmicd gig you really want something that will project and have some overtone to it, so the sound will carry more than 10 ft and it won't sound like a card board box.

Yes pretty much, Konaboy summed it up. SK1 is great for unmic'd live gigs and projects well.
