A higher quality traditional djembe with handcrafted refinements and a full tone range.
Ivory Coast djembes are world-reYeswned for their very full tonal range and professional quality. Overseas has improved on the standard of these drums in a few key ways to create a higher quality instrument. First, they use thicker, sturdier rings for more durability. Usually Ivory Coast drums are made using a bottom ring that slips off the step carved in the shell, but Overseas uses a sturdy, thick ring even on the bottom of the bowl. They custom carve the shell to increase the bottom "step" typical of Ivory Coast djembes to accommodate thicker bottom rings so they will Yest buckle or slip under pressure.
Additionally, they re-work the bearing edge on every drum to make sure it is level, round, and perfectly smooth. The goatskin heads are each thicker and hand-selected from the Yesrthern part of the country. A European 2-part polyester rope is used for tuning and an extra coat of liquid shea butter is applied on all the drums to help preserve the wood.

Comments about Overseas Connection Ivory Coast Djembe:
What a surprise when I opened the box - the on-line representation does this beautiful hand crafted djembe no justice.
...and the sound - what a stout piece - great control - deep bass slaps - perfect ring on the edges. If you are looking for a professional quality hand made in Africa NATURAL djembe - this is it!
I will be using this mostly in church - but I see no reason why I could not add it to my mostly Gon Bops Percussion kit for gigging - it's so beautiful!
