This 12" Remo 50 Series pre-tuned Tubano drum is an excellent option for your music classroom, therapy session, or virtually any drumming situation! The 50 Series Tubanos feature a Skyndeep® head for an authentic ethnic drum sound. However, the tone of pre-tuned Tubanos can not be changed, so several drums of the same size may have slightly different pitches. The Remo 50 Series Tubanos also feature an Acousticon® shell that is made of 99.9% recycled wood materials. This means that they will withstand climate changes, exuberant playing, and will be a long-lasting addition to your percussion collection.


Additional features of the Remo 50 Series pre-tuned Tubanos include:

  • Attached carrying handle
  • Molded feet to provide comfort while playing from a sitting position, as well as balance to prevent unwanted tilting
  • Available in three head diameter sizes: 10” for the highest tone, 12” for a medium tone, and 14” for the lowest tone; all are 26” in height
  • Available only in Tropical Leaf finish

This is a high quality and versatile drum. Although it is pre-tuned, the price difference (from the tunable option) is beneficial, and my students do not notice a difference in pitch among my pre-tuned tubanos.

This is great for playing with seniors. If in wheelchairs they can still play with one hand and a beater.
