    Comments about Remo Advent Djembe:

    I have one of these little drums and am very happy with it. It sounds good--much bigger than I expected for the size. It is made of plastic, which I wasn't too sure about when I first considered this but the sound is much better than I would have imagined and it is very lightweight, which is its biggest asset. This little drum is easy to take anywhere, does a more than serviceable job, and is fun to play. It isn't my go-to for performance but it is an excellent drum to take along when traveling, camping, or casual jamming.

    Comments about Remo Advent Djembe:

    Amazing for a cheap 10" djembe. I went all synthetic so I'd have a drum that would be good at the beach, camping, etc. Toca has a similar plastic drum with goatskin head if you want to go that way.

    I'm no great player, I just use djembe for accompaniment at guitar jams and whatnot, but have played quite a few drums. For its size and cost, this is a very good drum. The range of tones, volume and sensitivity is remarkable, far more than I expected considering the size. Very lightweight and I'm sure you could drive a car over it with little or no damage. The shell is very strong. The head is responsive, but sounds a bit like a doumbek as compared to a goatskin head, so it has its own tone but the tone is good to my ear. The ability to tune up to a doumbek-like performance was a plus for me, but I haven't tried that yet.

    Very satisfied, exactly what I was looking for.

          The REMO Advent Djembe is a perfect travel companion. It's shell is almost impossible to damage and is light weight. The drum performs well considering its size and is a great addition to a Drum Circle Facilitator's collection (we own 2).

            Comments about Remo Advent Djembe:

            Was a bit worried that this djembe might sound thin due to its small size. Sounds huge for its size!

            First djembe for my 10 year old daughter who has been interested in percussion for years. We love this thing!

            By Jim Keep

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Remo Advent Djembe:

            I dont know how the Big tunable Djembes sound but you get a lot of bang for your buck with the Remo Advent Djembe. I have a huge roped tuned Djembe, made with solid wood, that I have put aside in favor of the Advent. The Doons and Goons are deep with only a slight ringing noise, the tones are solid and the slaps are high. As a starter or advanced Djembe one cant go wrong with this little number, it sounds great (my handes are very sore from playing too much, yet I cant put it down) and for the price is a steal.

            A all around great drum

            By David Wak

            from Ann Arbor, Mi

            Comments about Remo Advent Djembe:

            All in all, I would recommend this drum, especially for the price.
            I recently updated to the Remo Advent after the goatskin head on my previous Djambe began to have serious sound inconsistencies effected by the weather which no amount of rope tightening seemed to fix. With this drum that issue is solved and I get a snappy rim/edge sound along with an unbelievable low bass. I tried this drum out at an acoustic gig the other night and it sounded wondeful. Full bodied yet very responsive at quieter volume levels, plus it sounded great with brushes which is something I like to use for certain tunes.Plus, like the previous reviewer stated, this drum could be tuned high to get a Dumbek tone, or tuned lower for a deeper Djembe sound. Either way it works just fine.

            .
            At this price one is getting a great little drum that's impervious to the weather, is light to carry, and has a lot of guts for it's size. This drum is probably not for Djembe purists who insist on real skin and wood, but those drummers, several whom I count as my friends, are not likely to warm up to the idea of an artificial drum anyway. As for me, I'm a semi-professional drummer/percussionist who needs to have a comsistent sound for my gear and Remo certainly understands consistency

            You Need One of These, Maybe Even TWO!

            Comments about Remo Advent Djembe:

            I was going to wait a month or so before writing, but after six days, I am convinced that this has to be the best value in djembes. I got it to have as a "companion" to my 16" Remo djembe. I have it tuned so it sounds like a doumbek, but it sounds great when tuned lower, too. It sounds great either way. I played it in church where I keep my big drum. Its complemented the sound of my other drum beautifully. I took it to an open mic/jam session where it acquitted itself well. I can't imagine how one... could damage this drum. At its pricepoint, you could have two of these; one tuned high and one low. GET ONE! NOW
