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.
