The kit is topped off by Aquarian’s American Vintage Series drumheads to capture that calfskin look and feel. Special thanks to Mike Froedge and Open Sky Studio for capturing some awesome tones from this restored treasure.

Roy Burns, “Sing, Sing, Sing” and the New Vintage drumheads

"I grew up playing calfskin drumheads, from a young kid studying the drums to landing the drum chair with Benny Goodman in my early 20′s. Every night we would play "Sing, Sing, Sing", the song that made Gene Krupa famous. That calfskin sound was soaked into me because the song featured the tom toms all the way through and I played it every night for 3 years. I remember thinking we will never be able to reproduce this sound with plastic heads. I am proud to say that Aquarian Drumheads has achieved the impossible! Our new Modern Vintage II and Deep Vintage II drumheads sound as good as the calf heads I played on "Sing, Sing", Sing" in 1958 with Benny Goodman."

Froedge’s Favorites

Mike Froedge put together this video to showcase a couple of his favorite Aquarian drumhead models. First up are the coated Response 2 tom heads, Hi-Velocity snare head and coated Force I bass drumhead. Next are the new Modern Vintage II tom and snare heads and the Deep Vintage II bass drumhead. These two different series sound amazing on Mike’s vintage 70’s Slingerland kit. All wonderfully recorded at Mike’s facility called Open Sky Studio. http://www.openskystudioatlanta.com
