About the Shell
Khadi or hare is the densest and hardest of West African timbers, known for powerful resonance and its signature tiger grain. Instantly recognisable and highly sought after. Many different carving styles give it a wide spectrum of sound.
About the Hide
Our Steer skins come from younger Australian cows, also known as yearlings. 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 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.
