Helping Drummers to make Music Worldwide

Until he died in May 2018, Roy Burns, a true Big Band icon, stood behind the Californian-based company as a co-owner. Burns used to be the drummer for renowned artists such as Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton and Woody Herman, and also writer and Drum Clinic pioneer.

Roy, who like many others grew up using natural drum heads, began searching for a suitable polyester replacement in the early 1980s.

With reference to the unique, warm sound of natural skin, AQUARIAN drum heads became popular because of their features and sound characteristics.

AQUARIAN grew tremendously in a relatively short period of time with its innovative and unique, top-quality products. As Roy always said: "In everything we do, we keep the drummer in mind. We help the drummer achieve a musical sound and thus improve his performance".

The large selection of available products offers the perfect drumhead for every shell and type of wood to achieve the sound I want.
