Toca's original Freestyle Rope Djembes set the bar for great sound from an affordable rope-tuned drum with a natural skin head. Freestyle II Rope Djembes now take the next step in performance with the installation of all-weather synthetic heads.
The new heads eliminate the stretching, drying, and loss of pitch that can occur with natural skin heads due to changes in weather conditions. Thus they offer greater consistency in sound. Synthetic heads can also be tensioned over a wider range, making them able to produce higher, crisper slaps and deeper bass tones.
Freestyle II Rope Djembes have also been improved with an increased number of rope runners that allow for improved tuning. The drums’ lightweight and durable synthetic shells offer outstanding resonance and projection.
Traditional sound…high-tech construction...state-of-the-art performance. You get them all with Toca’s Freestyle II Rope Tuned Djembes.

I bought this drum after playing the 14" Toca in drum circle. The sound is great and I expect many hours of playing before having to think about tuning it. Although I would expect the goatskin head to have more articulated tones than this synthetic head, I live in NM which gets very dry with extreme heat, and I didn't want to worry about taking care of the natural head. This drum should be pretty durable in our climate. If you are looking for a durable drum for lessons and sharing around a drum circle, this one is awesome! Can't beat the price, and it comes with a nice padded case.
