Aquarian Regulator Bass Drumhead with Hole

Thanks to its "Floating Muffling System," the Aquarian Regulator Bass head requires no other dampening techniques to get the smooth bass drum sound you want.

Regulator Series
These single ply, resonant bass drumheads feature Aquarian's patented "Floating Muffling System." They are perfect companions for the Super-Kick and Impact series batter heads. This Regulator heads is available with a 4 3/4 in. hole off set.

With Aquarian's "Sound Curve" collar design, the bearing edge finds its own spot in the curve. No wrinkles even with loose tuning. Aquarian drumheads tune fast and easy... every time!

Due to constant vibration, conventional drumheads all have some degree of slippage inside the hoop, which results in de-tuning and lack of resonance and response.

Triple Locking System
Aquarian's unique "Triple Locking System" provides drummers with previously unheard of advantages in resonance and playability.

1. Holes are punched in the bottom of a "U" shaped channel which has been formed in the drumhead. These holes allow the epoxy to flow into the "Safe-T-Loc" channel.

2. The "T-Ribs" that form the "Safe-T-Loc" channel prevent the epoxy and the drumhead, from slipping and pulling away from the hoop.

3. The "Locking Shoulder" acts as a "stop" to ensure the correct collar height for the drumhead.

The "Safe-T-Loc" hoop along with Aquarian's "Sound Curve" collar design provides easy tuning; great stick response; zero slippage inside the hoop; consistent sound; increased resonance and sensitivity; and the sound that drummers need and deserve.

Safe-T-Loc Hoop (patented) --Prevents slippage inside the hoop. The head does not de-tune read more during a performance and will not pull out. Tuning is consistent and the head stays in tune.

Sound Curve Collar Design -- Allows the drumhead to seat perfectly on the bearing edge. Conforms instantly to any shell design. Tuning is fast, easy and more accurate.

Extra-Warm Drumhead Film -- Produces a rich, warm and full mid range sound on toms and more low end on bass drums. Eliminates the "ping" and "plastic" sound common to other drumheads.

Satin Finish Texture Coating -- Coating does not chip off. It outlasts all others. Extremely thin, it provides a more responsive surface for brushes and sticks.

This is all I need
This is an awesome head. I bought it to put on my Mapex 22x16 Pro M bass. It's a maple shell and I wanted to play it without any of the add on dampeners. You know, no pillow or blanket or other gadgetry. I installed the Regulator on the resonant side along with an Aquarian Super Kick II (purchased from Zzounds at the same time). What a difference. I put the heads on, tuned them with a drum dial to 75 on the reso side and 78 on the batter. Wow! It sounds incredible. I am not using any other dampeners at all and the drum sounds like a bass guitar playing a really low note. So musical it's hard to believe. I now own the best sounding bass I ever heard. I've got a cheaper Mapex set that is a birch hybrid. I can't wait to try these heads out on it. Don't hesitate to by this head. You will be amazed!!
