        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!

            I would recommend this to anyone interested in an djembe that is easy to handle and sounds great. The solid mahogany gives this piece amazing depth and sound which is like non other.

                  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!

                        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.

                        By 

                        from Massachusetts

                        Comments about Meinl African Djembe with Bag:

                        As a hand drumming instructor and performer, I have worked with djembes of all types, from those hand crafted in West Africa to those made entirely of artificial materials. I have been buying a lot of drums to use when I teach drum classes, and I need instruments that have 1) a good sound, 2) consistent quality, 3) rugged construction and 4) a reasonable price. I have found these Meinl djembes to fit these requirements very well. The wood is plantation grown mahogany -- solid, but not as heavy as regular mahogany (which is very expensive). The rope is heavy duty and has lots of verticals, which means the tension is well distributed on the head. The goatskin could be a tad thicker, but when tuned up properly, the heads have a crisp dry slap without nasty ringing, and a deep resonant bass note. You'll find that by the time the drum gets shipped from Indonesia, the head won't be at full tension and the drum will need to be tuned up. Instructions are included on tuning (pulling diamonds), but if you've never done this, find someone who knows how. The bag that comes with the drum is well built, has thick padding, sturdy straps and a thick top that protects the drum head nicely. I now own 5 of these djembes, 1 of the XL (12") and 4 of the L (10") and am very pleased with them.
