Mounting your own djembe — how satisfying is that! Each djembe shell is sold with its corresponding custom-made metal hoops. If this is a djembe drum whose drumhead has loosened during its transport to Europe, it is also delivered with its original cprding. In this case it may be remounted with the technique called « tilting » without undoing the cording. The Top Mali djembe shell is vacuum-dried for at least 4 years, hollowed out, re-balanced and precisely sanded on a wood lathe. It weighs in general 2 kg less than a Classic Mali djembe shell! These djembe drums were created by Malian craftsmen using traditional materials and skills.
