    Comments about Meinl African Djembe with Bag:

    Our praise band needed some extra colors to our percussion sound, so we bought this djembe. It is more than satisfactory! As soon as we opened the box we discovered many different ways to great sounds out of it. It will sound different in each person's hands, because it is very touch sensitive to all the different ways you can strike it. It is also very beautiful to look at, a nice piece of wood. The padded carrying bag is a nice touch. Thank you Meinl!

      Comments about Meinl African Djembe with Bag:

      My husband and I purchased this for my son for Christmas. He plays drums for our church worship team and they often play acoustic sets. Knowing Meinl is a great brand, and the fact that it came with a carrying case for such reasonable price, we went with this particular djembe. Our son absolutely loves it and we love listening to him play it! The quality is excellent and the sound is full. This was definitely a great buy!

                The Djembe showed up days before I expected. It was better looking than we expected and has a great sound. The case is high quality and, I can see, will last forever. If was a Christmas present for my wife. She is ecstatic. Thank you for your always wonderful service and products.

                Arrived on time; was in tune. Easy to play and has a rich sound. Like the idea of having a carrying bag as well as one to protect the drum. All in all, a very good investment!

                      African Djembe

                      Comments about Meinl African Djembe with Bag:

                      Solid wood structure, crafted with precision, no flaws that I see. Sound is great!
                      It was as advertised , but better than expected. Delivery was on time and item was in great condition. Cannot beat the price, to include the travel bag. You have my business.
                      Built with extreme quality.
                      More than my monry's worth.
