This is a professional level djembe which means that it has a high quality goatskin drum head. The skin for this drum is taken from the spine of the goat.
The skin is fumigated but it is not bleached. This ensures that the skin has the natural color of the goat and maintains its thickness.
The 10" drum weighs between 11-13 pounds. Since each one is hand carved, the weights vary slightly between each drum.
