With respect and reverence for the age-old traditions of drums and drumming, we offer the Remo Buffalo Frame Drum Collection. Remo Buffalo drums are inspired by the indigenous cultures of the Americas. As the world's drumhead specialist for over 40 years, Remo, Inc. has developed an incredibly wide variety of drumheads to fit every drumming application. Each drum features high-quality Remo pre-tuned drum heads and Acousticon Shells - stronger, lighter and acoustically superior to traditional wood-ply construction. The deep, rich sound of these buffalo drums hold true despite variable weather conditions such as wet or humid weather, or extremely dry climates. Each buffalo drum includes a traditional cross-strung rope handle and black felt mallet.
