Remo Fiberskyn Frame Drum Set of 6. The "Remo Fiberskyn™ 3" Frame Drums are provided with a thumb notch on the 12”, 14”, 16” and 22” drums, and four holes located around the circumference of the ACOUSTICON™ shell, excluding the 10" & 8" sizes. The four holes are placed in a manner which would allow the use of many materials, such as rope, string, leather or vinyl strips, to create a handle. Suspending the drum in this manner increases the effective projection when struck with a mallet or the hand.
All frame drums are equipped with a Remo drumhead and are manufactured with Remo’s patented ACOUSTICON™ shell which produces the same tonal characteristics found on traditional wood shell drums with excellent projection and enhanced low-pitched fundamentals. The results… the Remo frame drum is light weight, durable, weather-resistant and easy to play which means you’ll have countless hours of fun jamming on your new instruments.
The frame drum originated in the Middle East and is among the oldest drums known to mankind. It can be played using a traditional style with the fingers, striking the edge of the drum, which produces a “tak” tone. It can also be held with one hand and played with a soft mallet or straddled between the knees like a bongo drum.
Whether you are a professional drummer or just want to have fun at a drum circle with family and friends, the Remo frame drums will meet your highest expectations for sound quality and durability.
