Here's a clip of me playing a friend's Saturn kit that is equipped with Aquarian Studio X heads. These heads are a bit more focused than the stock Remo Emperors and offer less attack.

They are suited for session, and I think they would not serve well for live use because of the loss of attack (unless you were well-mic'd).

The venue is drumforum.org's annual Forum Fest which is held each year in Indianapolis. Drumforum.org, of which I am a charter member, is a great place to learn. Please stop by.

Oh, and don't rag on the drumming too much!:)

The other young man in the videos is Dustin Sanders. He's a great drummer who I think the drumming community will hear about someday. He's also a Mapex Saturn owner.

They sounded GREAT boomer. With the Studio X's they kinda sound like the Aquarian coated Response II's I have on mine. Deeper warmer type sound.

This is my fear with buying these heads for my saturn.. I rarely mic em but not out of the question every now and then.. as with remo and evans heads I would think the clears would have much more attack than the coateds? any thoughts?

Wow, old thread but good topic. My next head change will likely be the coated Studio X based on reviews by our own Dingerjunkie and nmdrummer85.

Cool, you get the coated's and I will get the clears (no power dots) : ) I assume you have a Saturn as well?
