Remo Drum Shells: 'Acousticon' | Remo

What kind of wood are your drum-shells made out of? - Acousticon refers to Remo's shell material used on the majority of world percussion products that are produced in the Remo Inc. factory.It is made from multiple thin plies of 100% recycled wood-fiber materials, laminated under pressure into a solitary tubular structure. Each drum shell is impregnated with special resins to aid in leaving moisture out and then given a special 'acousticon' coating inside for optimal tone/acoustic qualities. Acousticon utilizes high technology in its construction perhaps more than any previous drum shell. It takes the best qualities of wood and betters them for incredible consistency allowing unparalleled pitch, timbre, and projection. The continuous, one-piece wrap of Acousticon makes for a denser, better-sounding drum. Because of its "uni-body" construction, there are no mismatched plies of wood, and all shells are constructed to exacting thicknesses, resulting in a sound with focus and articulation.
