I need a Djembe, come jam with me.
    #2183119 - 12/16/03 05:59 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Can anyone recommend a brand or kind they like.

I am into recording with my guitar and piano.  I really like the earthy sound of these beautiful instruments.

I am really want a roped tuned Djembe.  I know its probably harder to tune though.  I figure I will be doing some circle drumming with some friends I plan on meeting.

this Djembe looks cool and it seems to have a good body and construction.Ghana Hardwood Djembe Drum


this one is made by TOCA.  it has really cool designs on it. but I am not interested as to how cool it looks as to how well it sounds and easy to keep and remain in tune.  I would get the natural finish and 24x12 size for $179.
Synergy Hand-Carved Rope Djembe

this one is made by REMO.  It not a rope tuned one but from what I have played(in guitar center) I liked it. this is the only one I have played ever.Remo Djembe

ok last one. this one is made by Casablanca.  I don't kow much about them.Carved Wooden Djembe


so hears what I am asking.  I would like one that is rope tuned but it doesn't have to be if its going to be really hard to tune all the time.. I am willing to put alot of work into leaning the Djembe though so maybe one that is rope tuned is the way to go...  I don't want to spend over 200 bucks either. :tongue:


thanks ahead of time! and I hope to meet some shroomery Djembe players some day!! :laugh:


peace:sun:

It depends they all have there pro's and cons's.. The traditional carved african djembe's have the best sound but there really expensive and really heavy.. I have a friend from Ghana who makes them..
The factory made ones are lighter and cheaper but don't sound as good..

I have a traditional carved 10" rope tuned djembe from The King Of Africa.

He and his wife travel the country on Dead/Phish/Festival tour and sell their djembes.

I have watched him make many.

He doesn't sell online or anything of that sort, only in person.

I don't use it anymore, so if you're interested in it, hit me up with a PM.

thanks,


I am leaning towards the ghana one.. because it is more traditional.

I really like it and the way it looks.  that website also has a return policy so if I am not happy I can return it for a refund or another one. I didn't think about weight factor either.. I will mostly be sitting when I play but its nice to know.

I still have one question. is it hard to tune rope Djembe. :laugh:

Mine has a remo head. Its about 15" across. Bought it at strait music. Its very well built and has a great sound. You can tune it to do a lot of shit. I think its about 3ft tall.

Just a few things. First off, dont buy the ones that look good but you cant tune with a key because they go out of tune pretty quick and you'll end up screwed. Be sure yours has all the easy little bolt deals holding on the head so you can change the sound if you want. I would also suggest if you're gonna be playing mostly with it not mounted or anything (I assume thats correct) when you're picking it out find a chair and sit with it in your lap. See that it rests comfortably and there arent any metal protusions sticking in your legs or anything because they'll cause serious discomfort after a while. Im gonna vouch for remo again just from personal experience. Hope that helps a bit. Peace
