The Remo 8 Inch Rototom drum has no shell and can be rotated to change the pitch! The rapid-tuning system allows for instant tuning in a range of more than one octave. Their versatility has led to the widespread use of Rototoms in recording studios soundtracks percussion ensembles and symphonic music.
Rototoms produce excellent Latin percussion sounds along with the timbre of timpani but with a distinctive tone. Rototoms do not have a traditional drum shell. Instead the drumhead and counterhoop are mounted on an aluminum frame (spoke) through which the tension rods are attached to a bottom frame which is mounted on a threaded center bolt. Rotating the frame raises or lowers the tension thus raising or lowering the pitch of the drum. Rototoms are great for timpani training as they have a very familiar sound yet are not as loud and expensive as timpani drums and take up less space.
