This Ivory Coast Djembe was hand carved from a solid piece of Teak African hardwood. This wood showcases vivid grain swooping patterns all over the shell. The carved design at the bottom of the shell compliments the wood grain. The goatskin drum head has been applied using the overlapping technique that shows the beautiful color variations of the goatskin.
Notice the rasta colored string wrap around the shell. This techinque requires exceptional skill to keep the string even and in place. As a bonus, rubber tire has been affixed to the base of the shell to keep the drum in place as you play and to protect the wood. These types of drums are hard to come by and we just have this one unit. Grab it now before it is gone!
Each of our drums from West Africa are one-of-a-kind so the drum pictured is the exact drum you will receive. It has been inspected for any flaws, cracks and for exceptional playability.
