16x16 kickdrum heads?


New member
What head should I use for the kick drum I'm building out of an old floor tom?

Right now, I'm thinking of picking up the Aquarian Studio X, but still wide open to opinions.

It's hard for me to say precisely. What do you mean by definition?
I played the drum empty and with the beater coming off the head. The drum sings with a very warm mellow tone. I had remo pinstripes on it but though it has to much of a plastic attack and smack, so that's why I changed it to a J1. If you want attack out of this kick drum that is focused and tight, I suggest a G2 coated or clear head, or any other equivalent of other manufacturers. For muffling I'd use felt strips taped to the head with no muffling inside. For reso I use a clear 1ply head.
Hope this helps. If you need more info just ask :)
