Drums

We offer a wide selection of traditional West African drums, mainly djembes and dunun.  We have drums that are 100% built in West Africa that range in price and quality.  Alternatively we offer drums that are custom built in house from the shell up (raw wood) in Suffolk, UK and we then add our own high quality materials.  We select the highest quality woods through experience and on-site visits with our partners in West Africa and then work directly with the carvers to ensure that quality and standards are kept and designs are unique and traditional. Before leaving our workshop additions can be made to all djembes – tuning, adding rubber bottoms which protect the base & adding embellishments.  All our drums are unique and one of a kind and the price differences reflect different qualities and attributes that we have outlined in the description of each drum.  We do not use level classifications for our hardwood drums as we truly believe that any drum on our site will perform for you as intended.  It will literally provide a lifelong drum that you can tweak as you go and as you learn or you can cherish it as is.  Our drums are an investment and a piece of functional art that you can proudly place in your home, of course when you are not out and about enjoying it.
