This master crafted Djembe from Mali West Africa is made with Guenou wood.  It is capable of producing powerful bass tones as well as high slaps.  This wood is extremely hard, dense and stable.  These drums a easy to play because you can pull a nice, open tone from the drum without striking it hard.

The key difference between this Guenou wood Djembe and the others is the wood in this drum will contain color variations.  Notice the light patches in the wood.  Some people like this added character.  Some claim this produces a lesser quality sound because the wood is not perfectly uniform.  We believe other characteristics contribute to the overall sound quality more than wood color variations.

If you like the sound and craftsmanship of the Kangaba Djembe, you will love this drum!

The rings are custom fitted to each drum to ensure a tight fit which produces a more resonant drum. 

Special care is given to the skin selection and installation to ensure you get the most of these beautiful drum shells.  Mali Skins tend to be thicker than most and stretch less.  This means they will last longer, stretch less (less tuning).  If you desired a drum tuned to a very high pitch, these skins can take it. 

Add the Lifetime Drum Head Service Guarantee to your Djembe purchase and World Wide Drums will replace your drum head free for as long as you own your drum.  This Service Guarantee covers all labor and materials.

Like other finely crafted instruments, these drums are an absolute pleasure to play.
