Remo djembes are based upon the traditional drums of the West African Mandingo people, originating from the great Mali Empire of the 13th and 14th century. In Africa, one of the Djembe's functions is as a healing drum. Remo Djembes are based on the same traditional Djembe tone and form combined with Remo's modern advances including a wide range of tuning systems, heads, finishes and sizes.
REMO's key-tuned djembe have had great success as the most user friendly djembe in the world. With features like portability, tunability, durability, and playability it's no wonder why it is the choice for thousands and thousands of professional and recreational drummers for years.
The key-tuned Djembes are the most popular of Remo's World Percussion instruments. They're as wide used by touring professionals as they are in drum circles. The high slaps and deep bass tones from all Remo Djembes are from the Skyndeep Mondo drumhead and ACOSTICON TM shell. There are 6 lugs on the 12 in. model and 8 lugs are used on the 14 in. models, all in a FabriFinish covering.
I'm really enjoying this djembe. I saw this drum and fell in love with it; I decided to follow my heart, and I have not been disappointed.
(Not that it should matter, but I was talking to a professional musician a few days later, and mentioned that I had recently purchased a djembe. She asked what I had gotten, and when I told her, she said, "Oh, a Remo; that's what I play!")
