An excellent value for the money

By Dave C.

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.

An Amazing Djembe

By Scot Lounsbury

from Nebraska

See all my reviews

Comments about Meinl African Djembe with Bag:

I am normally a kit drummer, I just got into hand percussion for accustic worship style of playing just recently. I wanted to add a djembe to my hand drum arsenal. I researched for weeks what I wanted and the different price rages. I wanted something that I thought was just a little different than what other drummers had around here, but I also wanted it to look and sound top notch. I took my time and finally decided on this drum. I was not disappointed at all when it came. It was better looking than I could imagine. Then I played it. WOW! The low bass sound sings and is very present. I love everything about this drum.

Great Djembe!

By Daniel-g-QeX

See all my reviews

Comments about Meinl African Djembe with Bag:

I really enjoy the tone and quality of this instrument! The looks, and sound are wonderful. The case is great with it's pocket, super comfortable book bag style carry straps, and it features hard plastic in the lining to keep out harsher dings. The only downside is the stock support strap attached to the djembe, but that's not even a problem. This is a great buy!

Simply amazing

By Joe

See all my reviews

Comments about Meinl African Djembe with Bag:

Throughout my musical career, I have always been the singer/songwriter. The one behind the guitar, singing NEXT to my hand drummer. I always envied him so I decided to go ahead and buy myself a djembe. I ordered this a few days ago. It hasn't been delivered yet, but I went to my local drum import shop and played the exact one I ordered (the extra large one). I sat down and played it for about an hour and all I have to say is WOW. I can't wait until I get it! Not only is it a great drum, it also comes with an amazing bag to protect it and carry it around. I only wish that it would come with a few more things to make it more like a package deal. Maybe a nice strap or something. Don't be fooled by the price, this drum is AMAZING. My fellow singer/songwriters will want to convert when they hear this one! A+!

                        I actually bought this for my daughter as a gift and she loves it. She said if I'm nice to her she will let me play it to. I don't like that kind of pressure so I'm going to get one of my own. Kidding aside, it is a great instrument, well constructed and beautiful to look at. Cool to get all the different tones with a single drum. I may get two more very soon.

                          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!

                            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.
