I got a Toca synergy djembe a couple years ago to pair with my bongo drums for acoustic outdoor jams and parties. The drum was solid black with an awesome geometric design along the bottom. First of all, these drums are tunable. And the rope tuning works very well, and is also kind of fun to do. The sound of this drum is great for the price, and I can get a range of lows and highs on this drum head that not even my low or high bongos can match. By slapping, muting, tapping, popping, and rapping on this thing you can produce literally dozens of sounds on a single drum. My only prob with the drum is a crack has appeard coming up along from the base of the drum, but the wood is so thick and the crack so thin that A) it cant spread and B) it makes no diff to the sound whatsoever. What a great value. Get one if you're curious about world drums.

The problem with Toca drums is that they are not tuned very well. I bought one and sent it back. When it comes to rope tuned Djembes it is really important that it is tuned. This drum sounded terrible. I ended up buying a Sageman drum and it sounded fantastic and the carving was amazing.

Toca Rope tension Djembe

By David Simmers

from Salinas calif.

Great Drum for a hand made Djembe. Most I have played are not such good sound but this one 12" painted one not only sounds good but looks great as well. I now see they have African style ones to.I am glad a brand name product finaly is selling a good rope djembe because we can weed out all the grabage going around.

Toca Rope Djembe

By Leander Hamilton

from Bangkok Thailand

We Bought a Toca rope djembe 12 InchWow, what a big bass and wonderful high slap. Just needed to tune it a bit, as the mali weave was already started we just added a few diamonds.I would recommend this drum over all other rope Djembes on the web.

Toca Djembe: a good deal

By Zed-902hv

from Chicago

See all my reviews

Just got mine. Not a hand carved masterpiece from the Motherland, but a high quality instrument nonetheless. The overall look and feel is mass production, but it sounds great. I definitely would not call it a "cheap copy of fine traditional instruments." Nicer ones are out there, but this is a very good starter model. It will last a long time. (Just like my Toca bongos.)

By Scott The bea maker

This drum is the best djembe I've ever played. It has an authentic sound and crsip on the edges. I also like the carvings on the base. For any percussionist i recommend this drum.

two thumbs up

By jess-9wydS

from mammoth lakes, CA

this was the best choice i could've made for choosing my first djembe. it doesn't have that synthetic sound to it and there's a variety of sounds you can get out of it. if you like hand drumming, this is a great choice for your first one. affordable and satisfying. two thumbs up.

Great Drum for the price

By Brad Andresen

from Chicago

I bought this Djembe looking for a good drum to add some percussion to my studio tracks. Not knowing anything about drums, I bought this one and I am very pleased. I have played a few other Djembes and I still like mine better. There is a nice tight bass and an overall solid, smooth sound. It is a great first drum for me!

Great djembe for a great cost!

I own the 10" djembe. It sounds great for a small djembe. It's the best 10" djembe I've ever played. It's got great tone, nice bass, and nice high sounds. You can really make this drum "talk." It's a great djembe for an incredible price.

Toca Djembe 12

By Leo Outcalt

from Barbados

Bought a 12" Toca Djembe and was very Impressed with the big sound. Most Hand Made Djembes do nothave great sound unless you change the rope and head but the Toca ws great bass and Slap out of the Box. I would recomend them even for a Pro.

TOCA!

By Paja

from Reno, NV

I have always loved Toca. My friend has a Toca djembe and it is amazing. I would imagine they basically all the models sound similar they just have different designs in the carving. One review stated that they returned it because it was not tuned, well: TUNE IT. true, they dont sound good if they are not in tune, but NO DRUMS sound good when they are not in tune. So just tune it. this is an all around good djembe, buy it!

Excellent Drum

By Eric Brown

from Taunton, MA

I bought this drum as a "Djembe" was called for in a score I was directing. It seemed like a good value for this size drum and the reviews were good. I could not be happier with the sound that this drum produced in an orchestral setting. I have used it since in other pieces with chorus as well. My only problem is that the percussionist that plays it for me won't give it back!

Great Price, Great Drum

By Amanda K

from Largo, FL

I shopped around a lot before deciding on this drum and it was defilitely the right choice! It arrived quickly and was well tuned. It was exactly as edvertised. Nice sound. I only wish it had a strap... but I would definitely recommend it to anyone starting out. Really fun drum at a marvelous price.

I bought the djembe primarily for the low price - as an extra djembe. The sound quality is very nice. I played with some other drummers and this drum performed beautifully. I am very pleased and would recommend it to new drummers or for drum circles.

Toca Djembe

By TeleMan926

from San Francisco

I highly recommend this Toca Synergy series hand-carved djembe. I ordered the 20 x 10 size and I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase. The wood seems very sturdy and the goatskin head projects every slap and beat with depth and sound. The "pop" and bass was louder than I thought it was going to be which was a pleasant surprise as it might serve well in a jam session or small gig. Buy this you won't regret it!

Toca Synergy 12

By Djembe G

from Raleigh, NC

Just bought three for my drum circle. Toca makes great stuff. These Indonesian djembes are HIGH quality - better rope, skins, and finish than other Indonesian drums I've seen around. Two of the three I bought came well-tuned and one simply needed a few diamonds added to the Mali Weave. They have great, BIG sound! You can't beat the buy for a full-sized, well-crafted lathe-turned wooden djembe with traditional rope tuning and goatskin head.

Great value, great djembe

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Before I got this djembe I hardly knew how it was pronounced! But then I got it and was totally astounded by the tone. I've never heard anything like it. For the price it was just about as close to a perfect deal as possible. I couldn't imagine being more satisfied with any other djembe.
