The poll doesn't really give a purpose, best specifically head for what?

For general purpose all round covers band use i use the Aquarian Force 1 . It's a single ply head with muffling ring. Loud and punchy sound suits my 20".Either no muffling or a small flat towel inside depending on venue.
Equivalent heads that are as good Remo Powerstroke 3 or Evans EQ1.
I use a small Evans beater patch on all heads, regardless.

So i guessed i ticked PS3 there.

Re: Best Bass Drum Head on the market


The Aquarian Super Kick II makes my TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B sound like an up close sonic boom. It really brings out the attack of the birch, and the low end of the bubinga. I'll bet I could communicate subsonically with a herd of elephants.

I have used all of them and EMAD lasts the longest and sounds the best. Then Powerstroke 3, and the Superkick is a joke. it lasted me 5 days and broke. and it didnt even sound that good on my kick.
