    Kente Cloth is notable in Africa because it is frequently worn by royalty. Each Kente Cloth design has a special meaning. The dark color in this drum's pattern stands for intensified spiritual energy.

    Recommended size for Kids (ages 5-10), or as a great backpacking drum

    Recommended size for Adult players looking for the biggest range of tone and booming bass.

    The Key-Tuned Kente Cloth Royal 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. The bolt tuning system makes tuning a breeze and a tuning wrench is included with the drum.

    New and improved drum head! Our new synthetic head is designed to produce the same tones and has a unique texture that is similar to a traditional goatskin. In addition, these heads offer incredible durability, stability of tuning and more possibilities with the high end hits on the rim.

    The fiberglass shell features a multi-colored kente cloth 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.
