Djembe Drum Professional Guinea Classic Lenke Wood
A large professional size custom built djembe drum. I built this from a great unfinished wooden shell from Guinea, West Africa. The shell was selected for beautiful sound wood and a good form for optimum sound, linseed and oil finish. The wood is Lenke wood, one of the densist and most beautiful woods for djembes. I would play this drum in performance ! The goat skin is a beautiful skin from Guinea, West Africa, with the hair left on the edges. They are a very tough and it is without blemish on this drum. Woven rope carrying handle. Note, the drum has a couple small chips out of the bottom edge which doesn't effect the soundness of the wood or the drum, it is quite common in hardwood drums. The perfect drum to enhance your skills or as a performance drum.
I have made these drums for twenty years, and as a hand drum instructor, I demand the best sound, feel, and look from them! I hand fit steel rings to mount the skin, and use 3/16 low stretch rope to make a fire cracker of a drum. It a nice rounded edge to be easy on your hands. The top end tones and slaps are very sharp, with a big bass sound. It is very responsive to the slightest touch.
This drum is a full size djembe at 24.5 inches high by 14.5 inches at the rings, a 12 inch playing surface head. Comes with my online rhythm course!
