16" x 3" TAR Frame Drum constructed using a SKYNDEEP® fixed drumhead in faux Snake Skin!

The 16” x 3” Snake Skin Tar by REMO is constructed using a SKYNDEEP® fixed drumhead, pitched to produce the desired overtones that professionals listen for and music lovers move to.

A tar (Arabic‎) is a single-headed frame drum. The tar comes from North Africa and the Middle East.  Depictions of these frame drums date back thousands of years.  These drums seem simple, but are capable of great nuance and sophistication.

The tar is held mainly with one hand, although the playing hand can also play and supports the drum while playing (basically the other hand plays the drum). It has an open tone, and is often either played for accompaniment to other instruments or in drum ensembles.

The SKYNDEEP®   Snake Skin graphic drumhead is an actual image taken from an original animal skinned drum and now can be reproduced without harming any animals.  A light textured finish gives the drumhead a very real, natural feel that produces just right amount of overtones.  Remo Tars not only look incredible, they sound amazing!

The main business of REMO is making DRUMHEADS.  Remo first found great success in making drumheads for acoustic drums, replacing calfskin and cowhide with highly-specialized polyester film materials that well emulated the warm tone and easy response of hides 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.  

In the 1980s, REMO began applying this technology to the making of drumheads for world percussion instruments, resulting in the SKYNDEEP™ series of drumheads for djembes, congas, bongos and all kinds of hand drums.  REMO has created a drumhead that precisely replicates the look and the feel of real animal hide heads, bringing a completely authentic playing experience to their expanding series of drums including Tar drums!
