Meinl Percussion Djembe with Mahogany Wood – NOT Made in CHINA – 10-Inch Medium Size Rope Tuned Natural Head, 2-Year Warranty


For players of any skill level — you don’t have to be a trained musician to play the Meinl Headliner Series djembe — this drum can be enjoyed for theraputic purposes, playing jam sessions, participating in drum circles or performing with a band

Carved from one solid piece of plantation grown mahogany — the Meinl Headliner Series djembe is carved from solid mahogany that projects a rich tone with booming low notes and plenty of sustain — this shell stands 20″ tall from base to drum head (medium)

Hand-selected traditional rawhide head (10″ diameter) — goatskin heads produce classic djembe sounds with a warm, yet cutting tone while being remarkably durable — play toward the center for a boomy bass sound and slap the edges for sharp, popping accents

Mali weave rope tuning system — 18 nylon rope runners (4 mm thickness) securely fasten the head to the shell for a long-lasting and proper tuning with a classic look — comes ready to play and fully tuned right out of the box so you can play right away

Hand carved motif (Black River finish) — the hand carved mahogany shell is finished with a horizontal ripple effect that evokes the image of a flowing river — the hand made design means no two djembes are exactly alike, making each drum one-of-a-kind
