The traditional djembe is a goblet shaped hand drum with an authentic goat skin head affixed with rope runners. African djembe drums are hand crafted from a solid piece of hardwood. It can produce a wide variety of sounds, making it one of the most versatile drums. The drum is very loud, allowing it to be heard clearly as a solo instrument over a large percussion ensemble. Originating in West Africa, the djembe was used as a gathering drum and today is popular worldwide for people of all ages.

We build our classic djembes from refined Iroko wood shells carved in and imported from the Ivory Coast, though we have many other shell options. We use a goat skin head mounted with a triple-ring system. The hide hair is shaved off the playing surface of the head. Rope color is black. Don't forget to check out our Djembe Djacket and our Drum, Bag & Strap Special!
