About the Shell
This Ghana Series Djembe was hand carved from Twenaboa timber. Twenaboa is a medium density timber, lighter than hardwoods. These shells tend to have great bass ranges and offer great portability. Ghanaian internal carving styles usually result in twenaboa drums with low bass and strong slaps.
About the Hide
Thinner skins are responsive, sound higher and brighter, and are easier on the hands for new players. They also have higher volume so are well-suited to solo drums. 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.
