This Primo Series Djembe Shell was hand carved from Melina timber.

Melina is a golden hardwood with a good balance of weight and sound. Generally carved in typical Guinean style and having a sound profile with the brightness of lighter woods like Iroko, and the punch of denser lenke.

All of our djembe shells come with a bottom ring and two matched top rings included. If you have a preference for looser or tighter rings, let us know in your order!
