The Ruby Pro African djembe drum is a professional level djembe that sounds absolutely fantastic and is built to perfection. Made with the utmost care and attention to detail this Pro African djembe drum is a hand-carved beauty that is not only stunning but a true work of art. It just doesn’t get any better than this!


Please note that each drum is hand-carved, by master carvers, and sizes will tend to slightly fluctuate. No two drums are exactly alike which makes each one a unique work of art.

20" Tall x 10-11" Head, 25 sets of rope runners

    10 in Ruby Djembe

    Posted by Stephen Phelps on 22nd Mar 2024

    I received this drum and case in a timely manner. The drum was packed with the case already on it. Everything looked beautiful. I took it to a drum circle that evening. Sounds nice. No tuning required at this point. I also have an x8 - 12 inch Djembe and x8 - 12 inch Ashiko. They are all beautiful drums.

    Great tone and LOUD

    Very quality drum that will out perform others in major retailers for a fraction of the price. Received the drum in great packaging, lots of extras and very well tuned right out of the box.

    Love it

    I love my Ruby Pro and the rich sound that I get with it. It is also a beautiful work of art on it's own.
