Hi all -
I was a Remo guy for years. But in the last 3 or 4 years I’ve been using the Aquarian Super Kick II (with a thin Kick Pad) on the batter side, and an Aquarian Regulator with the 4 3/4” hole on the resonant side. I have six sets and I run this head configuration on all but one of them.
I tune the batter side to just past the wrinkle stage. I then tune the reso side just a tad past that. No laundry, felt, foam, wolverines, etc. are required inside the bass drum. It has a nice boomy thud. Even the sound guys like it!
