DO YOU HAVE A WARRANTY ON SECOND HAND ITEMS?
The drums in this Series are a little rough around the edges but still have beautiful music to give. You’ll find a range of djembes here: some are pre-loved, others are new but have imperfections. We always describe why the drum has been listed in this category; their flaws are usually cosmetic or just the result of being used. As with all of our drums, they undergo careful inspection to ensure that there is no damage that would affect the drums structural integrity. These djembes are covered under our standard warranty so you can purchase with confidence, knowing that we still love the preloved and stand by them!
