Did you know that historically Djembes were used for long distance communication in Africa? This large djembe is guaranteed to impress you not only with its highly expressive tone but also its full body and projection. Each Djembe pattern will come as a surprise when you order unless you specifically describe a certain pattern you would like to receive. We will let you know if we have one in stock or can get one built for you.
Dimensions:Head 12½ to 13 InchesHeight: 24 to 25 InchesSuitable for adults, easier to produce the variety of sounds (bass, tone, slap) because of the larger head size
A note from our supplier:Our djembes are hand carved for us in Ghana, West Africa by some very talented craftsmen. These carvers are fairly paid for their work and proud to share their craft and culture with others. In addition to being finely crafted musical instruments, these djembes are attractive art pieces. Each drum is unique with most featuring carvings of African scenes or Adinkra symbols.
We also offer professional-quality custom Ivory Coast djembes that we finish here at our shop in Sutton West, Ontario. The bare shells are created by African carvers, we then finish these djembes to ensure that they have true bearing edges, colourful, low-stretch kevlar rope and an attractive finish. We use multiple coats of tung oil to bring out the beauty of the wood to ensure that you have a drum that looks as beautiful as it sounds.
All of our djembes provide plenty of volume with a wide tonal range encompassing all the deep clear bass and crisp high “slaps” of the classic djembe sound.
Incidentally, all our djembes are tuned and played before leaving our shop to ensure quality and admittedly because we can’t resist the lure of playing them!
