These high quality Premium Djembes have been specially selected for our medium-range Djembe. Made from Djala hardwood, these djembe shells are a popular drum to graduate to when you feel you’ve mastered your first drum and eager to make a greater investment in your playing!

Our high end Djembes also receive more TLC – attention to crafting more comfortable playing edges, non-slip rubber bases, and a woven handle making it easy to attach your playing strap.
