5.0 out of 5 stars Ocean Rolling!, 19 Nov 2010
This review is from: REMO ET-0212-10 Ocean Drum - Fish (Electronics)
A superbly crafted double sided frame drum, offering literally an ocean of possibilities. Sound emitted has Remo depth of tone and beautiful lasting resonance. A truly professional result.

Clear Head ~ Synthetic Mylar which is extremely durable. This remains unaffected by climatic change so no sound distortion.

Fabric Head ~ Internal side a vibrant Tropical Fish design. The paler reverse of this being the outer head surface which looks to have a durable clear coating.

Wooden frame/sides ~ Substantial 1/4" 8mm thickness. Internal surface a Jet Black matt finish, looks like a wood stain. Outer surface covered with the reversed paler Tropical Fish design fabric. This appears to have a clear durable coating.

Steel Bearings ~ Plentiful, enough to single layer cover about 1/3 of the base. These are securely encased with no chance of escape unless strong force with intent is used.

Mallet ~ ONE supplied. Beautifully smooth untreated wooden handle. The head is padded, covered with a soft jet black fabric. This is secured using black plastic twine wrapped neatly around. Mallet total length 12 1/2" nearly 32cm.

Drum Measurements approx:~ Diameter 12" 30.5cm. Depth just over 2 1/2" 6.5cm.

An example of sound possibilities; the softest wave washing gently over the shore to an intense crashing full blown force 10 stormy sea! This is achieved in a variety of ways some of which are:~

Holding the drum and...
Gently tilting it from side to side.
Rapidly moving the drum side to side, body swaying for extra force.
Shaking up and down head side up or frame edge vertical.
Quickly turning the drum over, one side up then the other.
Swirling the bearings around in a circular motion.
Rolling frame edge along the floor.

Mallet or Hand...
Strike either drum head ranging from gentle contact through to full force.
Striking the middle for a deeper sound through to the edge for a higher tone.
Hold the drum while striking or place on a flat surface.

I've seen these drums played within the school environment; they coped admirably, virtually indestructible. Being light and easy to use, perfect if only minimal motor skills are possible. The slightest touch will send the bearings cascading across the surface creating a most satisfying sound, giving a huge sense of empowerment. Observing my little one in action shows this offers stimulation on many levels encouraging; confidence building, sense of achievement, experimentation, listening skills, copying, imagination, superb gigs and most importantly...shed loads of high powered enjoyment. A sound purchase!
