  • Nice drum

    Drum was smaller than description as some others have said. I bought this for my son for Christmas because the large djembe was sold out. He enjoys playing the djembe at his church and he sits and plays this one now at home. The skin still has some goat hair on it!

  • Good Practice and Travel Drum

    Dimensions on a drum are usually head size by height... I'm not sure how this was measured. That being said, these were bought as practice/travel drums and they work for kids... They do not get the tone of a full bodied Djembe.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • How is the quality of the product? Well Made
    • Did the product fit true to size? NO.. the size is totally misleading. The actual head is much smallet than implied.

  • Not what I ordered

    There were many problems. The specs for the drum say it is 11 inches tall by 12 inches in diameter. It is not. It is 11 inches tall but only 91/2 inches in diameter. The head was very loose and I discovered that the end of the tension rope was not even tied, thus the loose head. Once I tightened the head, the sound was pretty good. The drum was not evenly stained. Parts of it were light unstained wood, and other parts had a dark stain. Once I stained the whole thing it looked pretty good. Am not going to return it because I'm having fun fixing it.. But it still isn't 11 by 12 inches. Not much I can do about that.

  • fun djembe

    this djembe exceeded my expectations. it is fun, beautiful and light enough for an older woman to carry. The sound is delightful and i am having great fun learning on it. i appreciated the cover very much because i have a cat and do not want him practicing djembe! This djembe is so much fun it makes routine practice a pleasure i look forward to...i keep it next to my bed...for the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night! it is perfect for drum circles.

  • Fun Drum

    I know nothing about drums, but wanted something I could drum on with my hands, sort of like drumming circle style. I had to play around a bit with how best to use my palm, hand and fingers to get the best sound, but it's all coming together now. Lots of fun! The price is right and the drum is attractive and quite a conversation piece.

  • Not what I expected!

    I dyed the drum brown because I was totally disapointed with it. The bright red trim was awful!! Skin on drum not as pictured.

  • Decor only

    This drum was initially shipped with a cut in the drum head. Overstock sent me a new one quickly and easily. However, the product is not a playing drum. The head is rather thin and has an uneven thickness impacting the sound. It is a good cultural example, but not an instrument. If you want an instrument, spend a little more and buy a second line tall jembe.

  • djembe

    Drum has a nice sound - The size is a little smaller than stated but overall I am happy with this drum. I would recommend it. My daughters & I will be using it for drumming circle. We also ordered the hand carved Djembe Drum - We are having a blast with these drums! Love them.

  • Nice drum!

    Nice size--can put on table or lap. Has a pleasing sound and appears to be sturdily made. Glad I got it.
