This Second Grade Djembe Shell 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.
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!
