Professional Djembe Mali Drum Melina Wood

Professional Djembes

These are Professional Quality Djembe drums I've collected that have it all; sound heart wood, quality rope, a nice playing edge, and a fine goat skin head. Besides the great sound definition I look for, these djembe drums are beautifully carved and finished. Why try to learn on an inferior instrument? Learning is difficult enough! These need not be hit hard to get good sound definition.

" What to look for in a Djembe "

Don't be confused! We measure the djembe drum by the outside diameter of the wood. A twelve inch drum here will equal what others call a 13 inch drum!

Take a look at all our Student Drums! These are half to three quarter size drums, great drums to start your journey with! These djembes are carved with same care and attention to detail and form, but generally have African drum rope, and are carved of soft wood. Don't think they do not have the sound! Put these against any Indonesian drum and you know they are not toys!
