Has anyone tried the Aquarian Impact series bass drum heads?

Have you tried a Super Kick?

I've had an Impact head before but my usual go-to is the Super Kick. If you want a really focused bass drum sound the Impact will get you there but you lose volume noticeably. If you usually use a pillow or a half-load of laundry inside your bass drum you'll get the same sound with a much cleaner look with the Impact head. I used the Impact on the bass drum in the band rehearsal space because that volume reduction actually worked in our favor but it isn't a versatile head at all.

Oh yeah. I've had a SK2 on my 22 bass for quite a while. I love it. But I just wanted to see what the impact would do. There's absolutely NO reviews of this head anywhere.

Cool. If you're familiar with how the Super Kick sounds then the Impact is the same thing, just more muffling. Tighter sound, more control. I ran the Impact head with no other muffling in a 22x18 birch bass drum and it was super tight and punchy, but a little quieter than a SK2.

Yeah I'm planning on putting the 1 ply version on my 18 x 15 kick with a regulator without a hole to get a touch more projection
