About the Shell
This Primo Series Djembe was hand carved from Khadi timber. Khadi, or hare (Pterocarpus Erinaceus) 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
Cow skins are typically a lot thicker than goat, offering rich melodic sounds. Cranked tightly, they can really scream! Suited to experienced players with tougher hands and well-developed technique. We take care to find the best hide for the shell to maximise its dynamic range.
We offer 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.
