About the Shell
This Primo Series Djembe was hand carved from Lenke timber. Lenke (Afzelia africana) is a premium djembe timber, striking the balance between density and weight. Often referred to as the spiritual wood, lenke is typically orange or deep yellow in colour and offers great projection and the full tonal range of sound. It is well-suited to bigger drums and often produces powerful bass
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.
