      Great Instrument But NOT a professional djembe

      By Davis Hammon

      from Las Vegas

      Comments about LP799X Giovanni Series Galaxy Djembe:

      This Djembe is great quality and very beautiful but is definitely NOT professional djembe material. I say this because it lacks the crispness, base and slap of an authentic 'rope tuned' drum. Now, you may be saying that rope tuned is not an important component for the final sound and I would agree with that except that every GREAT sounding djembe I have ever heard or played is of the traditional fashion. This Giovanni djembe responds fairly well on the slaps and tones but fails miserably on the base. When tuned to support the highs the base becomes almost non-existent (a very discouraging thing)! Also, this drum has a very annoying ring to it! You may like such a thing but, in my opinion, it destroys the clean crisp important in percussion. For the money you can buy a professional tradional djembe that offers much, much more authentic African sound. If that authentic African sound is not what you are after than disregard this message, other wise check out other options or ask your local African percussion masters.

      Impressive

      By Davis-5Jy6C

      from St. George, UT

      Comments about LP799X Giovanni Series Galaxy Djembe:

      This drum sounds awesome, even at various tunings. The highs send chills up my spine and the bass is meaty and powerful. When tuned tightly this is an incredibly solid lead djembe.

      By Joe SoGruv

      Comments about LP799X Giovanni Series Galaxy Djembe:

      The lows in the drum are unreal. The hi's penatrate through everything. This drum is versatile, I have not found a situation i couldn't use it in. Only negative is the finish is so nice I'm scared I may mess it up.

      Versatile Instrument

      By KDE

      from Lakeland FL

      Comments about LP799X Giovanni Series Galaxy Djembe:

      This djembe is perhaps one of the most versatile hand drums available on the market. It can easily play the traditional african rhythms, but it still sounds authentic in an irish setting and can even be tuned to simulate a timbale.
