DJEMBE DRUMS

These djembe drums have a fantastic range, from a piercing slap to a deep resounding bass. They manage a dynamic range from a roar to a whisper. They are hand made in Ghana by professional African musicians and have been made to be played, for the quality of their sound.

 

The drum body is made from African Cedar (called Tweneboa). This is a fast growing tree. All our wood is obtained under license from the forestry commission in Ghana. Using this wood is less damaging for the environment than hardwood or fiberglass drums. The head is made from goat skins, and we use rope to tune the drum so can be tuned to accommodate our changeable weather.

 

The drums are reasonably light, much lighter than hardwood drums. They are easily carried and very manageable, so are particularly suited to schools and workshop leaders. We have 2 ranges, Standard (single weave ) and Professional ( double weave ). If you would like to add a bag to your drum you can choose one at half-price. If you are interested in buying a number of drums for a group or a school, please email me for prices.
