I got a 20 incher for the deeper tone.
Great resonance that can easily be adjusted with a finger or two of the holding hand.
The textured head allows you to brush the top and get a brushed snare sound.
Sometimes I play brush hits on the back side (holding the rim with thumb, ring and pinky fingers, the brush with index and middle fingers) while drumming on the front with the bony part of my thumb or fingertips.
If you hold a brush on the back side and hit the top, you get a nice snarey sound.
It encourages experimenting with it's many voices.
It's very durable and a real pleasure.

I wondered why a walnut shelled drum would be so cheap...it's not walnut. I used this drum to build a banjolele. I drilled through the shell, and it's not wood. Some sort of composite. That being said, it sounds good and is pretty well made.

    Comments about Remo World Wide Pretuned Hand Drum:

    I had originally made this purchase just to add a touch of simple percussion to my home recordings. However, after receiving the item, I find it sounds really nice and punchy. Just tapping this thing with your fingers and coming up with various rhythm patterns is hours of fun and well worth the modest price. It definitely has a nice tone that would sound good in a drum circle as well as accompaniment for acoustic jams and recordings. I'm not even a drummer and I am finding myself wanting own some of the other sizes.

    Comments about Remo World Wide Pretuned Hand Drum:

    I've used these drums in hospitals and schools for years. Besides sounding good, they are amazingly durable. They withstand repeated disinfecting and washing, as well as any abuse kids can dish out. Even after the head starts to peel, the drum still sounds ok! I've used two of these for about ten years before the sound started to degrade - that makes them unbelievably cheap. Remo does it again!

    quite fun to play, and CHEAP!

    By Worldbeatwhistler

    from Modesto, CA

    Comments about Remo World Wide Pretuned Hand Drum:

    I haven't bought one yet, but have borrowed one of these drums (the 16") several times during our drum circle. As you hold the drum, place your palm on various parts of the drum skin (on the back surface of the drum), you can get several different tones while you hit it with a stick. I've been using a vic firth soft-tip mallet (cotton tipped), but I think a bodhran tipper might work well too, although I haven't tried it. The skin may be too thin for that. I hope to buy one of these drums soon. I cannot attest their durability over time, as I have not yet owned one. I do hit the drum pretty hard and it holds up just fine. They are so cheap that if one breaks, buy another. These drums can be loud, especially if you don't mute them some with your hand, so if you are buying one for a kid, maybe invest in some earplugs for yourself. At least beating on the drum sounds better than the kids banging on pots and pans.

    Great Arabic sound, Fantastic value.

    Comments about Remo World Wide Pretuned Hand Drum:

    My school had a set of these drums, and my friends and I used to have impromptu drumming circles with them. I thought to look them up on this website and was surprised at how cheap they were (price wise that is)!! These hand drums are a ton of fun to play- the quality and variability of sound is astounding for such a "basic" drum. The only drawback I can think of is that the construction and materials may not be the best of the best. Still in all, I highly recommend these drums!

      This 10" Remco drum economically replaced our youth choir's poor sounding rhythm band drum. It will be enjoyed for years. We recently purchased the 16" Remco for our adult choir and added the 10" drum that also has a great sound, especially for the price.

                Comments about Remo World Wide Pretuned Hand Drum:

                I recommend this drum for hand drummers with some experience. I built a 10 inch myself a few years ago and ordered this one for its lower tone. However the large size that gives it its rich, deep makes it a bit cumbersome. I ordered a 14 inch for daily practice and that size suits me (a petite woman) for lap playing and I use the 22 as a floor drum. Overall, I recommend this instrument for those who are learning frame drumming.

                      I am a professional singer and retired music teacher, but consider myself a novice in percussion. I used Remo hand drums when teaching in public school general music, grades 3-5, and these drums give a good sound and are of good quality. The students respected them and were thrilled to play them. Now, I have donated this 10" Remo drum to my church music ministry to use whenever called for in choral and liturgical use. Our church is large - I should have purchased a 12" drum. That will come later!

                              I bought this drum because I am interested in joining our local drum circle. I have little to no experience with hand drums but this one has a nice ringing tone and is easy to hold and to play. I do nothing fancy with it, just keep a rhythm but this drum allows me to do that without much fuss. I might choose the 14" next time just out of space considerations but otherwise I'm entirely pleased.

                                  I wondered why a walnut shelled drum would be so cheap...it's not walnut. I used this drum to build a banjolele. I drilled through the shell, and it's not wood. Some sort of composite. That being said, it sounds good and is pretty well made.
