Custom-made djembe - Personalized djembe drum

Signature djembe

Percussion Africaine chooses top-of-the-range djembe drums from Burkina Faso, Guinea or Mali and entrusts their assembly to Antoine Gillain or Mathieu Taylor, professional percussionists and experienced fitters. Mounted with different types of skins, these djembes combine exceptional sound and aesthetic qualities.

The best Burkinabé, Guinean and Malian djembe shells are selected to make unparalleled djembes thanks to the wide choice of skins and string colours we have.

These djembe shells are assembled in our workshops by Antoine Gillain or Mathieu Taylor with a natural skin and high quality polyester ropes (pre-stretched double braid). All components used are carefully inspected before the instrument is mounted.

The Signature djembes offer a wide variety of timbres thanks to the different types of skin used : goat skin, steer skin (calf or thin cow), equine skin (donkey, horse, mule...) or deer skin (stag, elk...).

With their incomparable finish, these djembes are intended for passionate musicians looking for a professional quality sound and a unique style.
