Remo Nuskyn® bongo drumhead, 8.5". Nuskyn® sounds, feels and looks like real skin. Nuskyn® is a major breakthrough in drumhead technology that may be Remo’s greatest innovation yet. Frequency analysis of Nuskyn® shows it closely resembles the performance of animal skin, while actually expanding the sound response spectrum dramatically.
The Nuskyn drumheads feature Remo’s tucked heads technology, a process in which the film is wrapped around a steel insert ring just as animal skins are "tucked" around flesh hoops. The results? Nuskyn sounds natural, warm, and full-bodied with enhanced low and mid-range frequencies, without any lingering high pitched overtones.
