Here at Drumroots we are proud to announce that we have another brand new stock of top quality, professional, African djembe drums that have just arrived here from Guinea that are now available to buy. As well as our top of the range goat skin djembes, we have now introduced some truly awesome sounding calf skin djembes. All these drums are made of top quality hardwoods, beautifully carved and decorated and have been skinned with supreme skill and attention to detail by our colleagues in Conakry, Guinea.
Drumroots are proud to introduce our brand new stock of professional African djembe drums. Built to our exacting requirements, this range of djembes are built from a range of quality African hard woods (Lenke, Balafon and Djalla), have the very best quality skins, rings and rope, and all skilfully carved by our friends in Guinea Conakry. On this occasion, the Drumroots team were able oversee this shipment of drums on our recent travels to West Africa and before they were shipped over by our Guinean colleagues. While observing work that goes into these special instruments, we were able to input some of the finer details of our specialist requirements of carving, skinning and finishing in order to bring you the very best djembes available. Our extra work and attention to detail on this shipment of drums was certainly a sound investment of time as we feel that this is the very best set of drums that we have ever received and we are extremely excited to show them off!
