High quality deep carved djembe drum 60cm tall
Great sounding drum with deep base & crisp edge tones.
Shell: Made from “one piece” of plantation grown, kiln dried mahogany wood for strength & durability. Internal hand carved sprial grooves
Skin: Natural (unbleached) goat skin. Please note varying colour tones to natural skin is a normal occurrence and not a flaw (ie the skin is not white and has different shades of colour).
Rope: Strung with 21 tension points of 6mm heavy duty, high tensile nylon-core rope, for endless playable durability.
3 metal ring system.
Lateral groove internal carving to drum cone: the interior wall of the drum cone has been hand carved with lateral groove surface carvings that can be seen as a spiral pattern inside the drum cone. The grooves help to reduce overtones while increasing airflow within the drum to produce superior bass and sharper slap tones.
Deep hand carved tribal carving all around the head and cone of the drum with natural gloss finish.
Purchased direct from professional drum makers from the village of Ubud, Bali Indonesia.
Satisfaction guarantee: Your djembe will be thoroughly checked & tuned accordingly before shipment to you.
The skin on this drum has avoided harsh gamma irradiation treatment (as Australian Quarantine), by first being treated with a three step natural treatment process.
approx: height 60cm x width 34cm
Playing surface approx 30cm
Weight approx: 6kg
What to look for when purchasing a djembe drum
Always check that your djembe is tuned for you, otherwise you may be purchasing a flat sounding drum.
Check the drum is made from one piece of mahogany wood. Inferior two piece drums (usually mass produced in factories in Java) have a thin straight cone and are prone to separating from the head.
Avoid low quality drums strung with cheap shoe string instead of rope, as shoe string breaks. Shoe string is easy to spot, as it is very thin and isn’t usually strung with as many tension points as other high quality drums of the same size.
Check that you skin is natural and not bleached, as the bleaching process increases the risk of splitting. Bleached skins are bright white and don’t have varying shades in them.
