Djembe Drum Rope and Hide Ring Sizing and Cutting Chart


Ring Sizing Chart


Information for properly making metal rings to mount goat skins on djembes. Below is a chart I made to calculate the cutting length of 1/4 inch metal rod for djembe drum rings. The top ring is calculated at 5/8 of an inch larger than actual drum size. The hide ring is calculated at 3/4 of an inch larger than actual drum size. The right columns give some common bottom ring sizes and cutting lengths.
