So, who are AQUARIAN drumHEADS exactly?
The AQUARIAN story began in 1980.
Legendary American Drummer, Roy Burns teamed up with Manufacturing Guru Ron Marquez and between them pooled 70 years of combined experience to become one of the most innovative and respected Drum Accessory manufactures in the Wolrd.
Roy had already made his mark as a big band drummer in his early twenties performing with Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton and Woody Herman. In the sixties he concentrated on studio work in New York City playing a number of top TV shows such as the Tonight Show as well as numerous TV and radio commercials. He also led his own jazz group and performed regularly at famous clubs like the Metropole and Birdland.
Roy was also touring the world as the first full time Artist-Clinician in the music industry. His background as a famous drummer, teacher, author and studio musician made him an ideal teacher/performer. In many instances, a Roy Burns Clinic was the first one attended by young drummers in the U.S. and a great many foreign countries. Roy actually “set the standard” for today’s drum clinicians. During the same period, literally thousands of drummers were reading his now famous “Concepts” column in Modern Drummer Magazine, which ran an unprecedented 12 years.
Along with his heavy clinic schedule, Roy found time to be the “house drummer” for the Monterey Jazz Festival for nine years, backing some of the greatest names in jazz and blues…whew!
Ron Marquez’s background although quite different, was equally marked with significant milestones. As a systems analyst and manufacturing plant manager for the Southern California Telephone Company Ron gained the valuable experience that led to start his own company.
Specialising in the application of electro-static coatings at a time when most protective metal finishes were solvent based, Ron’ expertise soon saw him pioneer powder coating in the U.S., performing work for giant companies like Fender and Rogers Drums. Around the same time, Ron expanded his electro-static coating business into manufacturing motor cross and bicycle accessories. He became one of the biggest suppliers of handle bars in unique colors to several major bicycle manufacturers in the U.S.
With Roy’s experience in drumming and Ron’s high-tech background in manufacturing, AQUARIAN introduced a number of innovative and patented products plus a unique scientific approach to manufacturing. The first product was the Cymbal Spring, followed by the X-10 Graphite Drumsticks. As more and more Drummers and Percussionists discovered AQUARIAN, the company began to gain valuable traction and the rest, as they say, is history.
Some of AQUARIAN’s innovations include:
– The Safe-T-Loc™ patented hoop prevented de-tuning and “pull outs”…an industry first.
– The “Sound Curve”™ collar design allowed the head to seat automatically, which greatly reduced tuning problems…an industry first.
– The Hi-Energy™ snare drumhead for heavy players combined true snare response and great durability…another industry first.
– Roy, at the same time, developed the “Tap Test”™ to help drummers in selecting drumheads. Also, an industry first.
– However, Ron and Roy shocked the drumming community with the introduction of the Super-Kick™ bass drumheads which received both a comprehensive and specific patent. The Super-Kick™ bass drumheads have been described as “often imitated but never equaled.” “Nothing sounds like a Super-Kick™”, say AQUARIAN endorsers.
Roy’s experience in music and drumming combined with Ron’s extensive engineering and manufacturing background has built an innovative company dedicated to helping drummers play music. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
