About the Shell
This Master Series Djembe is hand carved from Cassia timber. Cassia Wood (Cassia Siamea) or Casha belongs to the family of Fabaceae and has signature dark wave grain patterns not too dissimilar to dark Khadi. Extremely rare dense (heavy) African timber with excellent tonal qualities.
About the Hide
Medium skins are well balanced with warm tones and bright slaps. They are versatile and suit just about any drum. Thick skins are rich and warm and once settled they have a very melodic quality. Better suited to drums with denser and/or thicker walls. We take care to find the best hide for the shell to maximise its dynamic range.
We offer LIFE LONG TUNING on every Master Series Djembe bought from us. Just drop your drum in to our St Kilda shop and we’ll do our best to crank it on the spot for you. You can also pick it up at a later date. We’ll even give you advice on how to best look after your drum!
Comes complete with an AD Drum Care and Tuning Guide to help you get the most play out of your drum.
