A perfect balance of size, weight, and powerful sound, this djembe is a real firecracker. The body is 24-1/2 inch. tall, constructed of hand-selected environmentally-friendly Siam oak wood, with a 11 inch. diameter premium natural goat skin head. The traditional shell shape provides the most authentic African sound, with excellent bass tones and sharp slap sounds. The 5mm extra strong non-stretch rope allows for easy and long-lasting tuning.
