          Comments about Meinl Headliner Black River Series Rope Tuned Djembe:

          It is just really heavy and there is a wide open "woof" bass sound that does not have much attack, mostly just boom. I thought it was just me and then I went by a store and tried out some comparable drums and there was just no comparison. I decided to return this one. Now, keep in mind, this is for the 13 inch drum. Smaller one's may be better. Looks nice though...

            I purchased this at a local music store - they had two and each one had a slightly different sound due to the tuning and stringing of the head. But what drew me to this particular model over the others was that I loved that both produced a nice deep bass tone.
