      OVERVIEW

      Say it with your hands.

      The Remo Designer Series Djembes are key-tuned and fitted with Skyn Deep heads. These hand drums produce a satisfying range of sounds from high slaps to deep bass tones. The durable, lightweight Acousticon shell delivers excellent projection and is unaffected by weather conditions. A heavy-duty rubber bottom protects the shell from ground impact. The exterior shells provide great visuals that match the graphics on the head.

      Originally from West Africa, the djembe drum has spread around the world to become the hallmark instrument of the world-beat movement. Since at least 500 AD, the djembe drum has been used in healing ceremonies, rites of passage, ancestor worship, warrior rituals, and social dancing. Find out how much your hands can say with this traditional hand drum. Remo's revolutionary materials provide great sound, durability, and looks.

        Comments about Remo Designer Series Key-tuned Djembe:

        This was not the original drum I ordered as it kept going to backorder but customer service did a great job in helping me find a different drum that was even better than the one I wanted. I have never had better customer service and always talked to a "real" person. The drum has great sound, easy to tune, high quality and I would recommend it to a new beginner or even an experienced musician.

            Great drum! Sturdy, well made and balanced, awesome finish, and it can make an impressive range of sounds! Bass is full and resonant, and the range of tones around the edges is amazing and fun to play with.

              Pure enjoyment! This drum is beautiful in its looks, sound, and performance. I like the key-tuning, much easier than drums with ropes. It's a good idea to get a floor stand to avoid having the drum slip if held between your knees, as its surface is smooth. I just reviewed the stand I got ... it's ideal. This drum in a winner!

              Comments about Remo Designer Series Key-tuned Djembe:

              Love it! Would like to get another (but I've run out of hands).
              Beautiful finish. Balanced weight.
              Very well made. The sounds that can be made are awesome, ranging from low to high. This drum can do it all!
              Very happy with the price. Have been wanting to get a djembe for quite some time. The price tag was the kicker on this purchase.

              I like it

              By 

              from Canada

              Comments about Remo Designer Series Key-tuned Djembe:

              The sound is good and ballanced. I agree with the other person who a review on this item; it does go low! It has a nice pop and ring to it too, especially in the tone range.

              In short I'm really happy with this one and I couldn't see why anyone would want to go with anything else. Really nice drum and a lot of fun!
              The best quality is has going for it is the tuning key! I tried to restring a traditional rope style djembe before after changing the head and I'd never do it again to save my life! After spending a few weeks re-knotting it, I had to take it to a professional. However, with the tuning keys you can change the head and tune it however and when ever you want without getting frustrated.

              remo shadow flame djembe

              By 

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about Remo Designer Series Key-tuned Djembe:

              I've had this drum for almost a year now and I am very happy with it. I got the shadow flame(black flame with dark blue background) and it looks as great as it sounds. I tuned it down a little bit because I like that deep bass sound but with the edges still pretty high so as to get as many differant tones out of it as possible. I have used it regularly wheather it be at home, practice or gigs and it has held up and stayed in tune very well. in my oppinion this is a great drum and I have had experience with many differant brands and styles.

              Great worship drum!

              Comments about Remo Designer Series Key-tuned Djembe:

              This is a great djembe! when they say high slaps and low bass they mean it. It feels sturdy but it's a little top heavy, i would recommend either a strap or a stand to go with it, but it's definitely usable in your lap. Just be aware of how you sit for comfort while playing. All in all it's a great value and has a great earthy tone that fits with multiple styles of music.
