A real alternative
Tina Plein, 01.12.2018
I play the Aquarian Response 2 Black Drumheads as a batter on the toms of a DW Collectors Maple Drumset. The drum diameters are 10 ", 12", 14 "and 16" inches at normal boiler height.

First of all, the Aquarian Response 2 Black Drumheads are double-layered COATED drumheads and not falsely referred to as "smooth" as in the article description (... apparently some sleepyhead has mistaken the response with the Reflector series, which but it's a completely different box).

Furthermore, this coating unfortunately leaves its mark on the tips of the drum sticks when playing (quite non-Aquarian) !!! And thus inevitably on white drumheads of a simultaneously used snare! If that bothers you, you may want to pop up the snare drum with a black drumhead, or rather pick up the (almost identical) white version of the Response 2 drumheads. Too bad, but: No rose without thorns! :-(

Sound wise in the outrageously overpriced Ebony Pin Stripe Drumheads, the Aquarian Response 2 Black Drumheads are a much cheaper alternative, but have a bit more sound due to their design. However, what can be compensated with a corresponding mood of the resonant pelvis quite well, - I've already played both types together on a set without any problems.

In combination with my DW Maple boilers and single-layer coated resonating heads in Ambassador strength, these Aquarian Heads make a full, round sound with assertive, clear tone, variable in pitch and therefore very universally applicable for different music styles.

The sound of the Response 2 Black Drumheads is very voluminous in Low Tunings with sufficient overtone part. The old rocker heart laughs! With appropriate Tuning in higher pitches, the overtone component increases a bit, so that the drums can always prevail well and clearly in the overall sound of the band. Additional damping is required only in extreme cases, such as extremely miserable room acoustics.

The durability of the Aquarian Response 2 Black Drumheads is very good - assuming a normal playing style, these drumheads can survive a well-booked season without losing noticeable sound quality. For the lumberjack and heavy hitter faction, this drumhead may not be that ideal, because at some point the material will give way to physical strain. The thickness of the Aquarian Response 2 Black Drumheads is 2 x 7 mil. In general, the same applies here: Like all drumheads, the lifetime varies depending on the playing style!

Priced for "Blackies" in a very humane area, the Aquarian Response 2 Black Drumheads are definitely worth a recommendation for those looking for a musical tom sound with sound and drum playing skills. And if you do not mind the shortcoming described above, you will also get an extremely cool look as an extra "candy", which is a real treat especially for drums with black kettle hardware.
