Contestant number one is the Aquarian SKII22 Super-Kick II. Let’s talk about bass drums for a while. Are you tired of having a pillow in your bass drum? Get a Super-Kick II drum head and you will never have to worry about that ever again! This is the top bass drum head on the market. Aquarian themselves say that: “The patented "Floating Muffling System" is made of felt for a pre-dampened, yet natural sound. The felt moves and "breathes" with the drum head.” In other words- this is what every drummer wants!
Now we will have look at an alternative, the Evans Genera HD. Looking for an invention that will revolutionize your snare drum? Look no further, you’ve found it! The Genera HD is one of Evans most popular drum heads, and for a good reason! Sound
Check out videos on youtube where a guy working in a music shop explains a little bit more about the drum head and demonstrates it:
This drum head provides you with a very controlled sound. All excessive overtones and extra resonance are eliminated and your snare drum will sound just like it’s supposed to do. Features

|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|This is without a doubt one of the most amazing drum heads for bass drums you can lay your hands on! The felt muffle ring makes your tone sound exactly like a bass drum should sound, and you can finally remove that pillow and enjoy having a clear, see-through drum that sounds great and is extremely durable for the heavy hitter!||We really like this drum head! It makes any snare drum sound a lot better and is good for any genre, really. The overtone control ring keeps your tone nice and tidy, so to speak. No clutter in the form of excessive overtones, just a nice, sharp sounding snare!|
