Mali Djembe (WR-0564)


100% Mali Djembe imported from West Africa.  Hand carved with a premium selected spotted goat skin.  Crafted to produce the traditional Mali djembe sound with very rich tones and slaps. The outer design of this drum mimics the style of a “Burkina Faso” djembe which traditionally has deep ornate carving. The full stem has been deeply carved which is very tricky to do and requires a dense and thick wood from the beginning, therefore yes – this drum is quite weighty but nothing is compromised in this Djembe. We have slightly modified this djembe by changing the rope which will help keep its tune.  This shell was hand picked by Wooden Roots for its raw quality – it all starts with the wood and this is the same wood that we would use to build our custom drums with.  This is an impeccable piece of wood and workmanship.  This gives you the ability to grow with this djembe and transform it into a full Wooden Roots drum down the road should you wish.  By upgrading to higher quality materials and enhancements a perfect solution if you are not in the market just yet for a top of the line djembe.  DO NOT LET THIS ONE PASS YOU BY!
