More Details

About the Shell
This Primo Series Djembe was hand carved from Dougarra timber. Dougara is a less common timber, similar to lenke in density but typically carved lighter. This wood usually has lighter chocolate brown tones and features the full tonal range of sound, usually sounding somewhere between a lenke and a khadi Guinea carve.

About the Hide
Medium skins are well balanced with warm tones and bright slaps. They are versatile and suit just about any drum. 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.


We recommend using good quality headphones for all our sound grabs – they’re recorded at high fidelity for your listening pleasure!
