Rowan Storm demonstrates the Thinline Frame Drum

There is no drum more lightweight, elegant, balanced, and affordable than the Thinline Frame Drum.

For the first time in 5,000 years of documented history, a radical new drumming functionality is made possible by linking cutting-edge technology with ancient tradition. Pushing the limits of Remo's revolutionary materials, the Thinline Frame Drum's light weight, narrow profile and modest price bring the enchantment of drumming to more people than ever imaginable until now.

With more than 25 years of experience with cultures and drumming of the Middle East and Mediterranean, Rowan Storm is recognized internationally as a performer and educator. With a parallel study of brain function and wellness, Rowan is pioneering the symmetrical frame drum position. The shallow depth of Remo's Thinline Frame Drum enables both hands to play all the strokes, while holding the drum equally with both hands. As the non-dominant hand is called into action, the rational is harmonized with the intuitive, and startling new sources of creativity are unleashed.

Women and frame drumming belong together as one of the most enduring traditions the world has ever known. Rowan Storm and the Remo Thinline Frame Drum initiate the next drumming revolution, as both hands and brain hemispheres become balanced partners in rhythmic expression.
