The all new Hosbilt™ Worlds Edition bass & tenor drum heads by Aquarian feature Aquarian’s extensive research and unmatched tone and resonance.

On the field testing and feedback from discerning percussionists have played a big role in the final, powerful design of the heads.

Innovative Design

Aquarian’s patented ‘Floating Muffling System’ really projects because the felt muffling ring doesn’t touch the bearing edge like other heads.

The Sound Curve™ Collar design adjusts to the bearing edge to form a custom fit on the drum. This allows the collar to vibrate in unison with the drum shell to preserve the low end punch and musical tone.

Enhanced Resonance

In both the bass and tenor drum heads, the resonance is enhanced by the Safe-T-Lock™ Hoop which holds the heads securely all around. The hoop resists slipping and pull-out even under extreme tension. With the Safe-T-Loc™ Hoop, both bass and tenor heads stay in tune.

the most musical and powerful sounding heads on the field.”

The Sound Curve™ Collar and Safe-T-Loc™ Hoop and the floating muffling system™ make Hosbilt™ “the most musical and powerful sounding heads on the field“.


Hosbilt™ Worlds Edition Drum Heads are available for drums with metal rims (Tom hoops) and wood counterhoops (Bass hoops). Tom hoop sizes 14″, 15″, 16″, 18″ and 20″ and Bass hoop sizes 15″, 16″, 18″, 20″, 22″, 26″, 28″ and 30″

Hosbilt™ - Carriers & Slings

Hosbilt™ has developed fantastic carriers for bass drummers and drum slings for tenor drummers and snare drummers who still prefer the traditional method of drum carrying. The ingenious bull-ring feature prevents the strap material from twisting and contributes towards positioning the drum in a stable position. The waist belt model helps the drummer bear some of the load onto their hips and off of the shoulder.


Hosbilt™ - Pipe Band Series Drums

Carbon Fiber hoops ensure consistency and durability while our new ‘key-free’ T-stud turnbuckle tensioning system allows for unrivalled quick and easy tensioning. Built to the highest standards associated with the Hosbilt™ name, the Pipe Band Series drums use the same shell specifications from original Hosbilt™ drums. Our new generation of drums are light, strong and sound superb and are available in a variety of sizes.


Hosbilt™ - Carbon Fiber Hoops

The configuration in which the counter-hoop rests on the flesh hoop of the head provides a free coupling between the shell and the head, allowing the collar of the head material to resonate to it’s maximum capacity. The hoops themselves resonate at frequencies that are sympathetic to the tuning range of each drum, which allows the entire instrument to resonate as a complete instrument.
