The REMO Infinity Mondo® 14”x25” Djembe features the Mondo® Skyndeep® Natural Graphic drumhead, Acousticon drum shell, newly engineered key-tuned “Contour” brackets and the “Choco Red” Designers Touch Eco-Grain finish.
In Africa, one of the functions of a djembe is as a healing drum. REMO Djembes are based on the same traditional Djembe tone and form combined with their modern advances, especially the REMO Acousticon® drum shell made in the USA. Remo’s proprietary Acousticon® is an environmentally friendly shell material made with 100% recycled wood fibers. Acousticon djembe shells have all of the tone and resonance of solid wood shells but are much lighter (more portable!) and less expensive to manufacture. This results in a great-sounding and durable drum that with the Designers Touch finishes, looks as dramatic as it sounds and sounds better than it costs!
Djembe drums have become very popular in recent years not only because of the infusion of African and Middle Eastern musical styles into popular music but also because djembe drums lend themselves to a wide range of music. A variety of sounds can be pulled from a djembe (pronounced “GEM-bay”) drum, from the deep and booming “bottom” tone to the bright, singing “top” sound. A djembe can easily be played to emulate a set of congas or bongos and the kick and snare of a drum set as well as the music that djembes are usually associated with. That’s why djembes are becoming “the one drum” to carry!
Tunable djembe sizes run from a top or drumhead diameter of 10” up to 18” with the 14” size having a slight edge in popularity because it is not too big to carry conveniently and not too small to lose the big bottom tone. Unlike traditional fixed-head or rope-tuned djembes, REMO has led the field with the great advance of its key-tuned djembe drumheads. You can easily re-tune your REMO djembe to the dominant pitch you prefer and in the rare event that your djembe drumhead becomes worn out or torn, it can be very easily replaced. The REMO newly engineered key-tuned “Contour” lug brackets make tuning more precise than ever.
The main business of REMO is making DRUMHEADS and it first found great success in making drumheads for acoustic drums, replacing calfskin with highly-specialized polyester film materials that well emulated the warm tone and easy response of calfskin while being far more durable and also, immune to fluctuations of the pitch and tone of the drumhead caused by temperature and humidity of changes in the weather.
Then in the 1980s, REMO began applying this technology to the making of drumheads for the rest of the world of drums and percussion such as conga drums, bongos and DJEMBES! As with drum set heads, REMO has dramatically succeeded in creating authentic-sounding, weatherproof and extremely durable and stable drumheads for djembes.
The Infinity Mondo Djembes feature the Mondo® Skyndeep® Natural Graphic drumhead. In 1992 the MONDO™ drumhead (Italian for “world”) introduced a new era of innovative drumhead manufacturing, increasing the possibilities for Remo World Percussion. Featured on the Infinity series, Remo MONDO SKYNDEEP™ graphic drumheads are made using a proprietary ink embedding process into the film while maintaining the integrity of a great sounding drumhead with warm, crisp, vibrant tones. In other words, this drumhead on the REMO Infinity Djembes sounds fantastic and looks really cool, too!
The REMO Infinity 14”x25” Tunable Mondo Djembe is also available in “Multicor” (or multi-color) finish which also comes with the Skyndeep Natural, Goat Stripe Brown drumhead. (Remo RDJ142522)
