Ideal for professional use
Shell: Made from “one piece” of plantation grown, kiln dried mahogany wood for strength & durability.
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 25 double tension points of 6mm heavy duty, high tensile nylon-core rope, for endless playable durability.
Lateral groove internal carving: 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.
3 metal ring system.
Hand carved tribal carving all around the head and drum cone.
Purchased direct from professional drum makers from the region of Tegalalang, Bali Indonesia.
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 39cm
Playing surface approx 33-35cm (13″)
Weight approx: 8-10kg
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.
