Product Description

The Toca Freestyle II Rope Tune Djembe has the traditional sound but features high-tech construction for your state-of-the-art performances. Freestyle II Rope Djembes now take the next step in performance with the installation of all-weather synthetic heads.

Toca Freestyle II Rope Tune Djembe Features

- All weather synthetic head eliminates stretching, drying on losing pitch
- Higher, crisp slaps and deeper bass tones
- Lightweight and extremely durable
- Protective nonslip rubber bottom
- 14 inch djembe includes a carrying bag

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. The Freestyle II Djembe features a rich, dark red finish and a protective nonslip rubber bottom.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Toca products.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "One of the better sounding Djembes"
Overall: This Toca Freestyle II Rope Tune Djembe is nicely made, light weight, well-constructed, and sounds great if tuned properly. The finish and clean looking construction of this djembe is great. It has a look of a traditional African drum but uses all of the modern materials of today. The head is plastic, which is great if you drum in all type of different weather conditions and locations. You donít have to worry about the rain, humidity, or the beach. Because all the materials are manmade, they stand up to a lot of different conditions. If they get wet, but try not to get them wet, you can wipe them down and they will still sound good. And donít ever leave any drum out in direct sun, for extended periods of time.I like the rope tuning better than metal hardware tuning. Once you tuned them to the way you like it to sound it will stay like that, almost under any conditions. No metal means less weight. I am sure that the rope tuning is by far the best way to tune a djembe. You have 40 to 50 point evenly pulling the skin around the rim. Not like the metal tuning that have about six and no more than eight points of pressure to pull it into tune. And because it is an artificial skin it does not get out of tune like a natural goat skin.With careful placement of some tape on top of the head you can also eliminate the extended ringing that is associated with artificial head. Some people like the ringing, so it is a matter of preference. I do not, so I have a 3inch of white surgical tape on the opposite side from where I strike the head. This stops the ringing from traveling back and forth.Overall I have 5 djembes and this is the one I use to go to the beach with. It is light weight to carry for long distances and I donít have to worry about it getting destroyed by the elements.

Sound: I bought this for my 9-yr old grandson for Christmas on the advice of a teen at our church who strongly recommended the Toca Djembe; I LOVE the sound this even smaller one produces and cannot wait to have my grandson play it. It arrived in perfect condition, altho it was supposed to have some kind of "gig bag" according to the site. That didn't come, but I made him a large carry bag with his name on it. Ease of Use: I am no musician but was still able to "fool around" with it to see if it produced sounds my grandson will like - I actually wouldn't mind having one myself now Quality: it seems to be very well made Manufacturer Support: na
