Aquarian 12" Jack De Johnette Signature Head, Tom Tom Tom Head, JD12, single ply, a very special, thicker than normal texture coating in black, a favorite of jazz and fusion players, these unique drumheads have a very round, full sound, especially for a single ply head, they are quite flexible in sound and can be used in many musical situations, no tape or muffling needed,
A slightly thicker head at 10mil that the standard 7mil "Texture Coated", and as such delivers a "wetter" tom sound. Although I initially liked this wetter sound I felt that they lacked projection compared to the standard TC's that I've used for many years. Probably great if you're in a miked up situation but hard work in an acoustic environment.
It was good to check them out but I don't feel that they were worth the higher price point. I'll change back to TC's for the next gig.
maybe it's because they have Jack de Johnette printed on the head, so that when I look down at my drums while playing I get inspired, maybe it's the black rough texture that just looks so good, or maybe it's the tone like no other heads I've ever played; (and I've been playing since the mid 70's. you can tune then tight and high, or low and funky, they are simply the best heads I've ever played, end of story...
