The Remo Buffalo drums are inspired by the frame drums of the Native American Cultures. They come with a rope handle and soft tipped beater. The standard style has a plain white head. Decorate your drum head with your own muse. All Remo Buffalo drums are manufactured with Remo's Fiberskyn 3 drumheads and patented ACOUSTICON drum shells. These drum shells produce the same tonal characteristic found on traditional wood shell drums with excellent projection and enhanced low-pitched fundamentals. You can play Remo's Buffalo drum in virtually any weather condition and they will keep their pitch sounding great.
