About the shell 

Melina, also known as bois de blanc, is a golden hardwood from West Africa. It’s density produces all the rich sounds you’d expect in a hardwood with a balance of lighter weight.

About the hide 

Medium skins offer a well placed middle ground between crisp (thinner) and warm (thicker) sounding skins. Most of our drums are headed up with variants of this grade thickness as it’s the best all round balance on most drums.Thicker skins typically offer warmer, more tonal sounds and are worth the extra effort to achieve the tone/slap distinctions, coupled with a punchier bass. We usually recommend the really thick skins for intermediate to advanced players as they are harder 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 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.
