About the shell
Lenke is a premium djembe timber, striking the balance between density and weight . Often referred to as the spiritual wood, lenke is typically orange or deep yellow in colour and offers great projection and the full tonal range of sound.

About the hide
Cow skins are typically a lot thicker than goat, offering rich melodic sounds. Suited to experienced players with tougher hands and well developed technique. We take care to find the best hide for the shell to maximise its dynamic range.
