About the Shell
This Master Series Djembe is hand carved from Lenke timber. 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. It is well-suited to bigger drums and often produces powerful bass.
About the Hide
Our Yearling skins come from younger Australian cows, aged 7-9 months. With a similar richness to full grown cow, but at thicknesses much better suited to djembe. They are harder on the hands than goat, so are better suited to players with 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 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.
