Why Remo?

I am impressed with the Bahia Bass drum head and the Skyndeep head for pandeiros, timbau and congas. My percussion sounds amazing with those Remo drumheads and it even helps my ideas while playing. Remo heads are not only improving the quality of the sound of my drums but also they sound much louder which is great for my large batucada ensemble. The funny part about all this Remo awesomeness is that somehow Remo will find a way of improving even more their already amazing products. It feels great to be part of the Remo drum heads family!
