How to Play Djembe and Care of Djembe
To play the Djembe sit on the edge of a chair. Cross your ankles and tuck them slightly under you. Hold the Djembe between your knees or thighs so that the bottom of the drum rests behind your heels.
There are commercial head conditioners on the market. However the best treatment for a skin head is use. The more a drum is played the better for the head. The natural oils from your skin will help to keep the head in condition. If you find the sound going a little dull you can re-tune the head using the cords.
Never use harsh chemicals to clean you drum or the head. When not playing your drum do not leave it in a car or vehicle. Keep your drum, like all instruments, away from sources of cold or hot air.

As coordinator of a Djembe Drumming Group with a school for teen girls, we travel to many venues to share the magic and healing . Providing drums for large groups to participate is challenging. I have been purchasing small drums for years, of course with adjusted expectation of their voice. The Celtic Labyrinth drums are truly exceptional! They have a full voice, are lightweight and I plan to purchase more. Hopefully x8 will continue their availability. Thanks!!!

Love my Djembe Drum

This was a great buy. I was surprised at the beauty of the wood, especially for the price. Great for us beginners! Although, I love it so much, I may keep it as my "forever" drum. The bag is great to keep it safe. I even put the flute and shakers in there. I can say, I was extremely pleased with everything, price, product, and shipping.
Great gift drum

It's a little small (the actual flat portion of the drum head is only 6.5" diameter; the on-line 9" must refer to the amounts turned down to be secured) BUT the tone is very clear, the wood and design are beautiful and the included bag is functional. I'm very pleased
