"Growing up and watching all of my drumming heroes play Remo made things simple when choosing the right brand. Remo are on another level in terms of durability, tone, feel, and ease of tuning — not to mention their enormous selection, fit for any musical application. There is no head company I trust more than Remo."  -David Parkes
