Best djembe - Mali djembe

Top djembe

The Top djembe stands out for its exceptional craftsmanship. It’s a high-end djembe for the most passionate djembefolas looking for an instrument of aesthetic and sonic excellence. The Top djembe shell is methodically selected for the appearance of the wood, its shape and ideally proportioned dimensions. Carved with precision, smoothed and then carefully assembled by experienced craftsmen with high-quality rope, it can be assembled with any type of natural djembe skin: goat skin, thin bovine or equine skin (donkey, horse, mule), cervid skin (antelope, deer, elk).

The Top Mali djembe is a top range model of the Malian djembe. It is made from a selection of the best djembes from the production of our local partner.

The djembes of this range are made following the same processes as the Premium Mali djembes.

All the quality criteria are screened for the selection of these djembes, which therefore meet - at the very least - the same standards as a superior class Malian djembe: steamed wood, precise finishes and rigorous assembly.

A specialist carefully examines all the productions of this kind of djembe and identifies particular specimens at all stages of manufacture: shape of the shell, general aspect of the wood, absence of sapwood and imperfection, impeccable finishes...

Each djembe is then assembled and tested by professional players. This ultimate step allows us to verify the exceptional quality of the djembe, including its sound.

Adapted to any kind of later assembly due to its high quality shell and string, the Top Mali djembe is only equalled by its Guinean cousin.

The skin skirt of certain models completes its aesthetic singularity and durably protects the upper part of the ropes.

The Top Mali djembes come directly from the best workshops in Bamako.
