Our Product Research Team2-ply Hybrid Bass Drum Batter Head
The Attack Orbit2 bass drumhead brings a compelling new look and sound to your favorite classic kick drum. The Orbit2's hybrid 2-ply construction — comprised of a solid 10-mil Dynaflex clear outer film with an "orbs" 10-mil Dynaflex frosted under layer — delivers a response that sits somewhere between traditional 2-ply and single-ply heads in terms of punch, durability, and sustain. This gives you a quick, defined attack with a powerful low end and a wide-open bloom that is tailored specifically to kick drums. Not to mention — those symmetrical staggered orbs just look great. Throw some LED lights inside and treat yourself and your listeners to a visual treat every time you play out. If you've been looking for an alternative to the traditional bass drum batter head, then you've got to check out the Attack Orbit2 bass drumhead from Sweetwater.The Orbit2: how does it work?
According to Attack, the Orbit2 bass drum batter head is "the perfect hybrid of double-ply and single-ply bass drumheads." By "removing strategically selected sections of the head's under-ply," Attack allows the head to sing without sacrificing that crucial, clean low end. This gives you "the durability of a double-ply head" with "the beautiful open sound of a single-ply head." But don't take our (or Attack's) word for it; order your Orbit2 batter head through Sweetwater today and try one for yourself.Pictured: Attack's Orbit2 bass drum batter (L) and resonant (R) heads.
