Due to the high tension that are put on djembe ropes, it's essential that your djembe drum has good quality rope that is quite thick and also low stretch.

Top end djembes are typically strung with 5mm thick ropes for extra durability and performance enhancement.

Rope Options:
Low Stretch Alpine Nylon HTB 5 mm
Low Stretch Alpine Nylon PP 5 mm
Low Stretch Alpine Nylon PP 4 mm

** Both HTB and PP are low stretch Alpine Nylon rope, however HTB is a better quality rope than PP.

Amount of rope needed:
13-14" Head: approximately 85-95'
10-12" Head: approximately 70-80'

    Gets the job done

    Posted by Drumhead Dave on 12th Aug 2014

    I rehead drums as a side business, and I've found this rope to be relatively inexpensive, but reasonably good quality. It's strong, doesn't stretch and is fairly abrasion resistant. You can even make decent splices by melting two ends together. Not as flexible as more expensive ropes, but not a big issue.

    I have not used the rope yet but it is visibly better than the rope i purchased locally to add tension (tune) my drum. Thanks for the quick delivery. Merry Christmas, Gene

    I needed rope that worked. X8 had it, in good quality at a decent price. Now, if my back will work just as well....
