Aquarian Double thins - Mike Radcliffe 8 Sept 1999

Well, in the midst of all the hub-bub I started over the Aquarian Drumset Tuning video, I actually put on some Double Thins and tried them out.

I think they are living up to their intent.  They definitely fit the bill as a head between a single ply and a double ply.  I was told they are around 12 mil in thickness.  This is a very nice gauge, as they will be more durable than a single ply, yet not as dead as most double plies. 


They tuned up quickly and easily, living up to the hype.   Did they tune quicker than any other brand?  I did not notice any difference.  

They do sound nice.  Do they sound nicer than any other brand?  I don't notice any difference.  I will pay attention, in the future, to the sound of these heads, as well as their durability. 

Maybe I will get a better picture of them, overall, with extended use.  It is difficult to compare the sound of these to any other head, because the make-up is so different.  But they are definitely more open than any 2 ply head I have ever played.  I'm sure that's due to the thinner plies.  That is a good thing for us.  Maybe the other makers will follow suit. 

I also like the smaller logo on these.  As much as I like Remos Powerstroke3 line, the big logo and the double ring printed around the edge just look tacky to me.  Too much crap.  Like those pick-ups that have all the trim and spoilers and stripes,... yuck.  I digress... 

Price wise, they seem to run a little more than Remo, but in line with Evans, so they're not too expensive. 

Bottom line:  I think I like them.  I won't let Roy's personality cloud my opinion of his products.  I think I will soon buy a set of StudioX heads for my Sonorlites and see how they sound.
