I have hundreds of drums for use in my corporate and conference drum circle event business called Village Music Circles.

Twenty-five years ago, all of my drums were natural wood and natural skin head drums. Because of the wear-and-tear on the wooden drums through constant shipping and use, I had to maintain a workshop to repair broken drum shells and heads. As I began to replace my broken wooden drums with REMO drums, I was able to close down my repair workshop.

Because of the durability of the REMO’s Acousticon® shells and Mylar® heads, repairing REMO drums is not an issue. They just don't break! REMO drums are kid-proof and drunk-executive-proof.

Now over 90% of my drums are REMO. In this picture you see me with the many variety of REMO drums that I use. Some of the drums you see in this picture are over 20 years old and are still ticking. The durability of my REMO drums have paid for my investment over and over again…. Arthur Hull
