I recently bought a Remo Ocean Drum from Bettermusic. It was the first time that I have purchased something from the store. I was pleasantly surprised at the high level of customer service provided and was kept up to date on my drum which arrived in great condition. I can really recommend this drum as it does sound like waves crashing on the beach. The drum sounds great as well and providing you follow the guidelines for it will last for ages. It is very therapeutic and great to play after a stressful work day.
