Set of 3 Genuine Ghanaian Dundun Drums

 

This is a set of beautifully, made deeply resonant, large carved dunduns.

These are sold as a set of three. They have a powerful deep resounding base. They provide focus and rhythm for a group of djembe drummers. They are played with sticks ( provided ). Each set is unique, and is beautifully individually carved..

 

Each set comes with a bell which can be tied to the drums to give another level of sounds. 

 

Dundumba ( large ) = 16" or 40 cm head, and 24" or 61 cm body 

Sangban ( medium ) = 13" or 33 cm head, and 20" or 51 cm body

Kenkeni ( small ) = 10" or 26 cm head, and 18" or 46 cm body

 

They are fair trade and hand made in Ghana by professional African musicians.

 

They have been made to be played, for beautiful 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 cow skins, and we use rope to tune the drum.

 

These drums can be tuned to accommodate our changeable weather.

 

The drums are lighter than hardwood drums. They are easily carried and very manageable, so are particularly suited to schools and workshop leaders.
