This hour glass shape drum has its origins from the West Africa area of Nigeria.

The Remo Talking drums are designed in conjunction with master drummer France Awe and are very similar to the Nigerian talking drum but with more bass tone and a superior shell construction. Manufactured with Remo's proprietary advanced ACOUSTICON shell material this advanced material has excellent projection capabilities and enhanced low-pitched fundamentals. Added benefits are strength, weather-resistance and reduced weight.

Historically, Talking drum masters could actually send messages to others by striking the drum with a curve drum stick modulating the pitch by squeezing or pulling the strings.
