        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...

          Comments about Meinl Headliner Black River Series Rope Tuned Djembe:

          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.
