Troy Patrick Farrell

Band: White Lion

"I’ve played all of the heads out there, and eventually I found their weaknesses. With Aquarian,
I play big drums (and a 28” kick), and have finally found the drum head that will give me that big sound. In
the years of playing Aquarian, trying out various heads on various drums, I have yet to find a weakness.
The Hi-Impact and Hi-Velocity snare drums heads are like no other. On top of that, the staff are as resilient
as the heads they produce often helping touring drummers in their time of need. Chris Brady and James Harris
are A-1.
When the sound guys ask what drum heads I’m using on my kits, I just simply point to the Aquarian logo on the kick drum."
