The Key to a Triggered-like Snare Attack
If you're either a heavy hitter or a lover of dry, full snare tone, the Aquarian Triple Threat snare head is sure to please. The Triple Threat molds together three plies of Aquarian Nu-Brite film for a multi-ply head that responds more like a single. The added weight keeps backbeats juicy and full as you crank up the tuning. It's plenty durable for heavy hitters, too. And the way this head neutralizes overring is perfect for rock and metal players who want a triggered-like tone out of their drum.
Great for close mics
Under the scrutiny of a close microphone is where Sweetwater feels the Aquarian Triple Threat really shines. It dampens the overtones that can lead to that "St. Anger" sort of snare tone, and delivers a satisfying pop to the console or front of house.
Controlled and dynamic
To say the Triple Threat is controlled is not to say it's not dynamic. In fact, it has a dynamic range comparable to your favorite single-ply head. But for modern players who want the attack of the drum with little else to EQ out, the Aquarian Triple Threat can really save time at the soundboard.
