It is exquisite! The diverse culture of my country provides the platform for all to explore any culture caring not of your ethnicity. My son was drawn to the rhythmic sounds of the djembe and pleaded for us to get him one.It is clean and precise in quality. The sound is professional and crisp.Instructions for tuning included. The shaker and tambourine are not professional in make but makes for a good addition to the repertoire.I recommend you buy a case when purchasing.
Nice littrle drum. Sounded nice when I got it, even better after I tuned it. The ridges on the sides of the bowl did get in the way a bit with the tuning but not too much. It has a nice range of sound for its size and pairs well with full sized djembe’s.
This Djenbe is as advertised, medium in size but it is big on sound. It plays with solid resonant sound and built solidly. I expect that it will last many years. If you are not familiar with the rope tuning you may need to spend some time on youtube to figure out how to adjust the tone, but mine came ready to play. The 10 inch head provides a good area to play while balancing a more petit instrument which make for easy travel. This Djembe is a great buy fun to play. Highly recommended!

I didn’t know what to expect because of the low price. I am very happy I took a chance on buying this drum. I belong to a drum circle and the sounds I can get from this drum are amazing. It has great high sounds on the rim of the drum and a nice base sound when striking it in the center. The only fault is that it did leave a black mark on my pants after the first . I read that in another review and thought it was a fluke but it was true. I don’t wear light clothes now and it did only happen one time. The stain did come out in the wash but I am still going to be careful.If you are looking for a good drum case to carry it in make sure you get the dimensions of the case because the one I bought was a bit too big and I had to use styrofoam to make the drum fit. Happy drumming folks.

I like the sound of the Djembe, it has a bongo like sound to it. The outside of the Djembe makes it easier to hold while playing it. The Djembe has lots of different sounds that can be played on it.

ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!! I LOVE THIS DRUM UNEQUIVOCALLY! As a long time free jazz avant-garde jam band percussionist and drummer, I have played many a hand drum, and honestly, This is the BEST sounding djembe I have ever owned. I can’t recommend this highly enough. As a longtime naturalist / Sierra Club and Audubon member, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE FACT That this beautifully carved drum is responsibly made from Sustainable (and ethical) wood harvesting practices and is certified as such. Lastly, and Most Importantly, This drum sounds absolutely BEAUTIFUL – straight out of the box! While playing along to some of my absolute favorite percussionists like Adam Rudolph, Go: Organic Orchestra and Cyro Baptista, (all of which are truly brilliant percussionists that I would recommend to ANYONE!); I sound like part of the recording due to the wide range and beautiful warm sounds coming from this Magnificent Drum! If you’re looking for a GREAT Djembe, GET THIS DRUM!

Couldn’t be happier with this djembe. Was a liiiiiittle scared, u know, buying a musical instrument online.. can’t hear it, pictures are cool, but.. so anyway, ordered it, came in time, and tried it: absolutely GREAT sound, great item, very strongly built, not a cheap stuff, I mean.. I just couldn’t be more satisfied. Need to mention all the “stuffs” coming with it, booklets, how to tune, how to play, etc etc, guys.. thank you VERY much, I will definitely come back for the next purchase.IF I may make a suggestion..?? perhaps could u include, in the description, a brief video-clip, so potential buyers could actually see, and hear, the product..?? I know it might be a lot of work, but… it might make a difference..??? in any events.. thanks again, sincerely.

Bought this for my son, who is going to take an African drumming class. He played around on it for a while, then researched some patterns online, and has been drumming every day since. I don’t even ask him to – he just goes and plays and enjoys it. He isn’t always grateful for things, but today, he said “Thanks a lot for the drum. I really like it.” To me, that says a lot that a 12 year old will take some time and mention the gift days after its purchase. It’s a good filler for boring moments, and even though it’s so simplistic, it’s fun and entertaining. Now I need to buy another for his brother!
I got this drum just for decorative purposes, but I did test it to see how it sounds and how well I can keep a beat. I am definitely not a professional, but the drum seems to be of exceptional quality and price for the size of it. It is not only decorative, but functional as well.
