Product Description

A traditional African drum, the djembe's origins can be traced to the West-African Mandingo people and the Mali Empire of the 13th and 14th century. It was originally a goblet-shaped hand drum with an animal skin tightly stretched over it to produce a high "slap tone" or a low "bass tone." Today, this extremely versatile hand drum has made its way into nearly every avenue of modern music including rock, pop, jazz, folk and hip hop.

Traditional Instrument, Modern Materials

Remo's djembes are made up of a Type 2 FiberSkyn 3 drumhead and Acousticon shell for crisp, high slap-tones and resonant bass tones. There are 4 lugs on the 10 in. model, 6 lugs on the 12 in. and 8 lugs are used on the 14 in. + models, all in a Earth-pattern FabriFinish covering.

Easy to Play, Easy to Tune

The key-tuned Djembe is the most popular of Remo's World Percussion instruments and is as widely used by touring professionals as they are in drum circles. Remo's key-tuned djembes 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.

Developed with the assistance of world-renowned djembe players, Remo's key-tuned djembes feature superb sound quality and lightweight design, and can easily be tuned in any kind of weather with a standard drum key.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Remo products.

Product Description

The key-tuned Djembes are the most popular of Remo's World Percussion instruments. They're as widely used by touring professionals as they are in drum circles. The high slap tones and deep bass response from all Remo Djembes are from the Type 2 FiberSkyn 3 drumhead and Acousticon shell. There are 4 lugs on the 10 in. model, 6 lugs on the 12 in. and 8 lugs are used on the 14 in. + models, all in a Earth-pattern FabriFinish covering.

Traditional Instrument, Modern Materials

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. Developed with the assistance of world-renowned Djembe players, Remo's key, rope, and cable-tuned Djembes feature superb sound quality, lightweight design, are easily tuned in any kind of weather, and always easy to play. These versatile instruments are then combined with Remo's modern advances including a Type 2 FiberSkyn 3 head on this drum key-tuned model.

Metalized Nickel Silver Finish

The Metalized Nickel Silver finish bridges the gap between wood and metal shells and provides a unique look featuring the SkynDeep Black FiberSkyn Mondo head. The SkynDeep Black FiberSkyn Mondo head supplies the sound and durability players are used to but ads an aesthetic quality previously unavailable, in the 14 in. x 25 in. size.

Sound: My drum arrived on time and packaged very well. I would certainly use this company again. I had done a lot of research on the Remo key tuned djembes and knew that they have a ringing sound (or as some put it, an after tone) when striking the head. Mine was no exception. I had read that I could use weather stripping inside the drum to tone some of this down as well as putting a Remo Nuskin drum head on, removing the Fiberskyn 3 that is standard on their drums. I did both and definitely see a difference in the sound. I am very happy with the results. I am a missionary and live in Southern Mexico, in the mountains, where the weather is wet and cold for a few days, then warm and dry others so I knew I couldn't opt for a more traditional wooden djembe with a natural skin head. I play in the church worship band and also want to start a drum circle eventually. I carry my drum on my back to and from the church so needed a drum that could take the occasional bumps. After all my research, the Remo seemed to fit the bill the best. It takes any weather any time, is super sturdy and fairly light weight (I have the 14 inch Earth djembe so there is a little weight), and the sound is great now that I've made the modifications. Remo has a great reputation and now I know why. Product reviews mean everything to me as I shop online living where I do. I hope this review helps and encourages you to try a Remo drum. You just can't go wrong for the money and money is certainly an issue for me. God bless, Deb Feature: Waterproof and very durable drum and drum head. Weight much less than a wooden drum of this size. Quality: Remo makes an excellent product. I've seen other Remo drums full of dings but still sounding great. As I mentioned, I bought the 14" Remo Earth djembe and it's a beautiful drum, very happy with the finish and appears to be quite durable. I bought a Remo djembe bag to protect it as much as possible carrying it around, whether traveling on buses, or walking back and forth from home to church for worship. Value: ZZounds had the best price on this drum when I was shopping around, and I shopped for a couple of months online. As I mentioned before, I don't think you can beat Remo for the quality and durability you get for the money. Manufacturer Support: This is my first time working with ZZounds and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. I never contacted anyone, just ordered online with no problems at all. Quick service and I was impressed with how well the drum was packed for shipping. Overall: I'll have this drum for good. It fits right into my lifestyle, ready for any situation I need it in, and capable of traveling on Mexican buses or in the back of vans or trucks. When I do get a drum circle going, it is a great drum to use for beginners and I don't need to worry about it getting hurt or out of tune. I may eventually get a nicer wooden djembe with a natural skin head, but for now, this is perfect for my needs. If this djembe were lost or stolen soon, I would definitely replace it with the same drum.

"Good Djembe"
Sound: The sound quality is great. good deep bases and clear overtones. Feature: Hardware is handsome and metal, very durable. Ease of Use: Its a djembe...can't really mess this one up. Quality: All post consumer content while still 100% wood. I think personally that the consistency of the density in the shell compares favorably to solid mahogany. Value: Great quality for the price. Manufacturer Support: NA The Wow Factor: This isn't a Meinl or some other fancier model, but it does have a grassroots appeal. Overall: This is a keeper
