The Aquarian Super-Kick II bass drum head has been out for a while now, and people have yet to see any reviews on the product, so we will give you one!
Most people have heard or owned, or still own an Aquarian Super-Kick I bass drum head. This head is known for it's full rounded sound, with great focus all in the same head. But with every great thing, there seems to be a compromise. The head is single ply, and for some drummers, they just need a head they can really kick hard into without the beater saying hello to the inside of the bass drum. This is where Aquarian have worked to fix this problem, giving us the Super-Kick II.
The Aquarian Super-Kick II is the same exact technology of the Super-Kick I, now they make it in a two-ply head! Same muffling ring and everything with the strength and durability to play live and play hard. I recently switched out my Super-Kick I for a Super-Kick II, and have came to the realization that the two heads sound very similar being that the muffling ring around it is identical to the Super-Kick I. The only slight difference in sound was the attack. The two-ply Super-Kick II was harder on the attack, but it's all in personal preference on the sound you want. The head has a wide tuning range and can sound great on any-size bass drum. The durability of the Super-Kick II is outstanding because you can kick it hard and it holds up.
Overall, I definitely recommend any drummer to sit down and try the Super-Kick II. I also recommend the Super-Kick I, they are both great drum heads for all kinds of playing styles and music.
