The African Gold djembe is a fiberglass shell with a synthetic drumhead. Many percussionists seek synthetic drumheads for the distinct pitch it produces which is typically a higher tone than a traditional goatskin head. Also, those with sensitive hands tend to prefer a synthetic drumhead. This drum also satisfies percussionists looking for vegan drums (no animal skin used for drum head)
Watch Video Demonstration of the 10" Fiberglass Djembe
Model shown in video is Earthen Red, however the tones will be the same for all 10" Fiberglass models. The only difference between the six 10" models is the design on the shell of the drum.
The fiberglass shell features a beautiful gold pattern design. When comparing this model to Toca's Freestyle Drums, you can expect this to have a little more weight because the Fiberglass material is more dense than the PVC used for the Toca drums. The benefits of an extra couple of pounds means richer tones and a sense of better stability.
