Most durable and very warm coated heads
19.09.2016
I was playing coated Remo heads since I started learning drums. I really liked the warmth that those heads were providing but the quality of the coating.... if you hit anything more than moderate, or if you hit with the tip it's immediately gone... and tuning was not great either. I personally did not like the sound of Evans so I decided to give Aquarian a try.
The sound is very warm (only slightly less warm then Remo) and punchy. Very pleasant sounding and versatile heads.
The durability and look is amazing, hats off. It denies to get damaged even if you try to damage it. The coating simply does not wears out even after months. And the coating stays white throughout this time, it always look like new!
Tuning is also much better and they are cheaper than competitors.

Highly recommended!

Only problem you can face is with drum manufacturers that produce slightly oversized cells like f.e. Gretsch. It might get hard to fit it.

Pros: very nice, warm sound; extreme coating durability; nice tuning; looks like new all the time; cheaper than Remo/Evans
Cons: might be hard to fit in some cells

Amazing
Archie F., 03.02.2017
The tonality is wonderful, I've previously used Evans on my snare and am still using them on my toms as they are great heads. However I find the tonality of the evans slightly plasticky and bright which works well for me on the toms. I was using the power centre on my snare and it is a great head however the trade off for the increased durability is a loss of sensitivity due to the patch. I find the Aquarian texture coated to have a slightly warmer and less bright tonality. I've used it continously for a month, every day (give or take a day) 3 to 4 hours a day, I have my own soundproofed drum room. As an open handed player I have no restrictions regarding the height of my snare stick height so I think the term gorilla is probably not inappropriate. The only marks on the head are from brushes leaving that grey residue which I can wipe away. Otherwise the head is unblemished. I am incredibly impressed. Also as it is a single ply head you can damp it to the appropriate level for your application.

Hollow sound, great quality
Lmliddane, 07.01.2020
I suppose this is just preference but I didn’t really enjoy the sound from this head. It has a defined, hollow sound to it which wouldn’t be to my taste. I had however used it for quite some time and it barely had a scratch on it when I decided to change the head. I hope this helps you :)

For a darker sound and indestructible coating, use these!
James4797, 28.05.2014
I experimented with all the main manufacturers heads on my snare drum. The coating on an Aquarian head definitely lasts longer then on any other make of drum head. It never seems to wear. The sound characteristics of Aquarian heads, however, are quite dark. I find remo the brightest, Evans in the middle, and Aquarian definitely the darkest of the 3 in sound.

The response of these heads is very good, the quality and coating is excellent, but what I would say is choose your heads according to the sound you want. I tend to want a brighter sound these days, but you can use these on, say, a steel snare drum to make it sound more 'woody', and if I was to use my drum kit for teaching, I would fit it with these heads as they last so well.
