Aquarian Announce New Reflector Series
At NAMM 2019 last week, Aquarian announced a new line of innovative drum-heads" The "Reflector" Series.
Inspired by drumming great Eric Moore, the Aquarian® Ice White Reflector™ drumhead delivers studio quality sound when played live; no additional muffling or resonant control needed. This new white reflective, two-ply playing surface is durable, focused and musical. What better place to capture Eric's first performance encounter with the New ICE WHITE REFLECTORS than directly on the ice itself! The natural reverberation of this empty ice rink's reflective surface was a good test of how these heads would deliver the clarity and the articulation needed for Eric's approach to playing. This impromptu stand-up solo shows Eric getting to know the sound of his beautiful new kit outfitted with ICE WHITE REFLECTORS and how it responded when he played hard, soft and when he turned up the speed. The result was a drum sound that was musical and controlled with just the right amount of resonance. These drums tuned up easy and gave Eric just what he wanted. Eric and his drums were now ready to deliver some remarkable live, "one-take" performances all with studio quality sound!
The bottom ply of the ICE WHITE Reflector uses Aquarian's heavy-duty smooth white 10mil drumhead film which is stiffer and brighter than standard Aquarian drumhead material. The top layer uses Aquarian’s Classic Nu-Brite 7 mil film for warmth. The result is a two-ply hybrid head that is warm, resonant and musical at lower volumes; bright and articulate when played hard; clean and focused when played fast!
The wide tuning range makes this head versatile and suitable for a varied range of musical styles. The Aquarian Safe-T Lock Hoop makes for a quick and easy tune-up every time. Every note remains clear and identifiable when metrical precision is a must.
