Save your hands and back for the drumming. Tune your Djembe with ease using this simply designed Djembe rope puller.
No need for rags or towels to protect your Djembe from damage caused by the base of the puller marring your drum. This rope puller incorporates a heavy rubber base cap which serves two purposes; 1) protects your investment from gouges and 2) keeps the base of the puller from skidding off the drum while under tension, saving your feet, back and drum.
The simple "T" bar end is tapered for easy rope pick-up. We tried many designs, including ones with cleats. While cleats grip well, they are sometimes hard to release. Cleats can also cause damage to your rope. We have found the "T" bar to be just as effective as cleats at pulling the rope but far easier to release the rope and pick-up the next vertical.
The 33" steel bar provides plenty of leverage. Constructed using 1" steel tubing and 1/4" flat stock, hefty enough for the most demanding tuning jobs and built to last a lifetime.
The handle is coated with a rubberized grip paint and capped with the same cap used on the base. The handle cap also acts as a spare base cap.
