Aquarian Studio-X drumheads have a fat, focused tone that's ideal for toms in the studio or onstage with microphones. The Studio-X series pairs a singly-ply clear head with an internal muffling ring to coax just the right amount of attack and resonance from your toms - many times without the need for additional muffling. This muffling ring tames high overtones that could potentially cloud your mixes, and it does so without deadening the natural tone of your drum. Studio-X heads also work wonders for lively, untreated rooms where low toms can turn into mud in a hurry.
Aquarian Studio-X Drumheads at a Glance:
Drummers understand the eternal compromise: wide-open drums sound great from behind the kit. But close-miking untreated drums can amplify those complex overtones so that all you hear is ring. This isn't ideal for studio work and close-miked live applications. That's why we were pleased to hear Aquarian's Studio-X series: a line of drumheads with just the right amount of muffling to let the mic pick up your drums the way you hear them. Each single-ply, 10-mil head features a lightweight internal muffling ring to reduce unwanted overtones without deadening your drum. This results in a focused attack, purer tone, and quick decay that is guaranteed to improve your recordings and stage mixes.Aquarian: building innovative drumheads since 1980
