Our Perspective

Are you looking for a resonant bass drum?  The Remo Bahia Bass drums are comparable to brazillian Surdo drums.  The raised feet, diameter and materials of the head allow for optimal resonance.  Perfect for any percussionist, drum cirlce, music therapy settings, or music classroom.

~Tereasa Evans, Music Education Consultant

Description

The Bahia Bass Drum is specifically designed to be used in both recreational and educational settings. The Bahia Bass Drum is available in three diameters: 12",14",and 16". All are 21" in height. Designed to be nested, the 12" and 14" drums fit snuggly inside the 16" drum for better portability. The drums feature durable molded feet for stability and sound projection, a black Bahia Bass drumhead for a profound bass sound and Remo's proprietary lighweight Acousticon shell construction.

The Bahia Bass drumhead is made with a 5 mil bottom layer of clear Mylar film and a top layer of a black naugahyde, simulated leather (vinyl) material. This combination produces a very low bass tone which dramatically eliminates most overtones. These qualities will also produce a softer bass sound with less attack when played with a drum stick. This combination of the Bahia Bass drumhead and Acousticon drumshell creates a unique sounding bass drum.

Mallet available separately (Item# 254791).
