More Details

About the Shell
Carved from Ironwood or “Gele” (Prosopis Africana), one of the densest of all West African hardwoods. Distinct dark red (almost black) hues with often wavey grain patterns. Produces bright resonant sounds (like Khadi) and is suited to solo drums.

About the Hide
Yearling skins are a great middle ground between cow and goat. Offering a little bit of warmth and a bit of bite too in the top end, these young cow skins are fast becoming super popular with djembefola. We take care to find the best hide for the shell to maximise its dynamic range.

We offer FREE LIFE LONG TUNING on this Primo Series Djembe. 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.
