11.5″ Guinea Bougarabou – Nimba

AU $920.00

Same day dispatch

Superb solo bougarabou.
The medium yearling skin has been chosen for maximum pop and clarity which the hardwood timber allows for.
Love the cowrie shell feature and “nimba” bowl design – Nimba means prosperity and opportunity.
Awesome drum!

More Details

About the shell:
Djala (Khaya senegalens) is a very popular and attractive djembe hardwood. It is most commonly a rich, dark red colour when sanded and finished. Its high density gives it strong projection and carving styles usually bring out the tone.

About the hide:
Thick skins are rich and warm and once settled they have a very melodic quality. Cow skins are typically a lot thicker than goat, offering rich melodics. 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.
