A medium-small member of our new Senior
series of djembes, with an 8" head. Drums in this range are slightly wider and shorter than others in the Jammer
collections which means they produce a rounder, deeper sound, and their classy plain finish should appeal to more advanced players. They also include extra tuning ropes to facilitate perfectly even fine tuning, and a rubber base to protect both drum and floor when not in use.
djembes are made using Indonesian mahogany from SVLK compliant sources. This system ensures the wood is legally logged, transported, traded, and processed, and was initiated to answer the global need to be more responsible with the world's natural resources.
Each drum is designed for long-term use in the classroom and built to last. Features include a traditional goatskin head, sarong wrapped head ring, nylon rope tuning, and a superior third metal ring system to eliminate any chance of skin slippage. Please note:
as the drums are made by hand, head measurements are approximate (accurate to within 1").
