About the Shell
Lenke (Afzelia africana) 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. It is well-suited to bigger drums and often produces powerful bass.
About the Hide
Medium skins are well balanced with warm tones and bright slaps. They are versatile and suit just about any drum.
Thinner skins produce resonant bass notes and very bright crisp sounds that lend themselves to soloing. They are also softer on the hands. 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.
