Head Size:

Please enjoy our selection of Professional Djembe Drums from Ghana. These drums are NOT to be confused with the souvenir drums you may find in a tourist gift shop. These drums are meant for playing!  Each drum is carved from a solid piece of native African hardwood by villagers in Ghana. The heads are all rugged goat skins (some with goat fur edging, others neat and trim). Each drum is rope tunable with enough rope coiled around the drum to tune it as you desire. Savor the deep Boom from a center slap of the larger drum and bring it home with the commanding high-pitch shouts from near-edge slaps.

Features:

  • FREE drum bag included!
  • Close knotting around the head for professional tuning and minimal sound variance
  • Extremely durable goat skin heads for tighter tuning and increased longevity
  • Carved from a solid piece of wood making them stronger than multi-section drums
  • Thick walls that can take a fall and keep on playing

Noteworthy Imperfections:

This drum arrived missing any decorative carving on the exterior of the drum. If you were looking for a un-carved drum to carve your own design on, this is the drm for you!

If you prefer to keep this drum smooth, please note this slip of the tool (?) below where we find a small scrape in the thick drum wall. This could be covered up easily if you're arving your own design over it and it does NOT impact the sound.

Dimensions:

Many of these drums come in both 10 inch and 13 inch drum head sizes.  When more than 1 sizes exist, you will be able to select your desired drum head size above. Here are the full dimensions, prefixed by the drum head size:

Drum Head:  10 in
Drum Diameter:  11.5 in
Drum Height:  20.5 in

Drum Head:  13 in

Drum Diameter:  14.5 in
Drum Height:  24 in

Notes:

Drum Head measurements represent the diameter of the playable surface of the drum head. I have included the outer-edge drum diameter for your reference as well.

These drums are all individually hand-carved.  The drum heights may vary slightly from one drum to the next but the drum head sizes should be consistent. For example, the 10 inch drum head selection may be a half inch taller or shorter than 20.5 inches.

Lastly, these drums are made from natural goat skins and trees. While slight imperfections in the hide or wood can be expected, I personally inspect each drum and any noteworthy imperfection has already been noted in the drum's product description above and an appropriate discounted price has been set.
