More Details

Our second grade shells include a wide range of styles and timbers from across West Africa.
There’s plenty of “project drums” in this range. ie Shells aren’t cosmetically perfect but will provide a first grade sound once they’ve been given some love (or not) and skinned up.
Imperfections include.
– Oval shaped head or wonky structure
– Cracks and hairline splits in bowl or pipe.
– Wood knots in the grain.
– Chips in the carvings

About the Timber
Iroko is a lighter-weight golden hardwood which produces more portable drums. Usually carved in Burkina Faso or Ivory Coast in a style emphasising crisp tones and slaps.
