New Pro djembes available


After a long wait, Drumroots are excited to announce that our brand new stock of professional, African djembe drums are now available to buy. It has taken us longer than usual to get these beautiful drums shipped here because of problems with shipping due to the COVID 19 pandemic, but it’s well worth the wait. Each drum has been skillfully crafted by our colleagues in Conakry, Guinea, using a range of African hard woods (Lenke, Hare and Djalla) and only the best quality skins, rings and rope. Please get in touch for more details.
Also, don’t forget that Drumroots also stock the best quality Protection Racket Djembe
bags 
and run a mail order service to send drums out wherever you are.
