About the Shell
Dougara is a less common timber, similar to lenke in density but typically carved lighter. This wood usually has lighter chocolate brown tones and features the full tonal range of sound, usually sounding somewhere between a lenke and a khadi Guinea carve.
About the Hide
Cow skins are typically a lot thicker than goat, offering rich melodic sounds. Cranked tightly, they can really scream! 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.
We offer LIFE LONG TUNING on every African Djembe bought from us. Just drop your drum in our St Kilda shop and we’ll do our best to crank it on the spot for you, or you can pick it up the next day. We’ll also 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.
