Remo's Native American Style synthetic vegan drum, also known as the "Buffalo" drum, is an excellent choice for drum circles, sweat lodges, healing, ritual, and ceremony. Because the head of the drum is made from a synthetic material, the drum can be played in all weather conditions and the sound of the drum will be the same. The drum can even be played in the rain! The 22 inch is the drum of choice for our Sound Healing master, Zacciah Blackburn, in workshops, private sessions and ceremony.
The small Buffalo drums have a higher pitched tone, but are lighter in weight and easier to hold for children. The 16 and 22 inch buffalo drums have much more resonance and bass to them. The 22 inch in particular has such a large head that you can get a wide variety of notes from it depending on where you hit it, higher and lower.
All REMO drums are made in the US. They each include a free black beater.
If you prefer a vegan drum any of the line of REMO drums are a great choice.
