OVERVIEW

With the Toca Vuur, you carry African traditions whever you go.

Toca's Vuur Djembes, hand-carved with old world designs, honor the traditional African approach to drum-making. The attention to quality and detail is striking and the appearance is enhanced by a deep red stain. Authentic goatskin heads are secured with a non-stretchable alpine rope with braided core. This combination produces a rich bass tone (especially in the 10" and 12" sizes), with sharp, piercing rim tones and ensures stable tuning.

FEATURES
  • Hand-carved with old world designs
  • Authentic goatskin head
  • Non-stretchable alpine rope with braided core for stable tuning

The Toca Vuur Djembe is ready to take you on a rhythmic journey! Order today.

I ordered this looking for a nice hand drum for some acoustic things my band was working for. I saw it featured in an issue of DRUM! magazine, and decided to give it a try. I ordered the 12" and was disappointed. It is an awesome drum. When played right the number of tones and sounds produced by this drum are infinite. The red finish and tribal carvings just add to the worth of this drum. Sounds great with many different styles of music. When you really get going all of the different tones make it seem like a whole orchestra of tribal drums are going at once! This Djembe is definitely worth the money.

I ordered this drum and sent it back. It wasn't tuned and the head slipped. It sounded dull. I was not impressed with the quality of the ropes, the carving was ok. I bought this drum to play at the Venice Beach drum circle. I bought a Sageman 12" deep carved and it sounded much better and the carving was INSANE!!!!

Great Drum!

By MikeT

from West Virginia

I just opened up a 12" one. It sounds amazing. It has great tone quality. The carvings look better than I thought they would. Sounds much better than one of synthetic Remo's. You can't beat this for its price.

Review

This drum sounds really amazing. All tones sound great - especially the bass. It can easily be heard over amplified guitars and keyboard. The only problem I found was that the wood is very hard and it hurts to play a little more than other djembes I've played, but when I'm jamming with other musicians, I don't really notice that much.

Very Happy with my Djembe

By Denise Mosser

from Buffalo, NY

I've been playing in drumming circles, always borrowing other drums, so I knew what I wanted when I was looking for my own djembe, and this drum perfectly fits my desires! It has a wonderful bass sound as well as good higher notes. It came tuned perfectly and in great condition. I like the engravings on the base, and the color is good. I like the size, easy to carry. I'm going to enjoy playing this drum!

The best deal EVER. Period.

By Takamura

from Berea, KY

I bought the 8-inch, I must admit, with doubts. These were dispelled immediately when I found I could get bass, tone, and slap sounds as well as muted in a perfectly sized djembe for $56 after shipping. I am incredibly pleased with this product.

Nice Traditional Djembe

By Spider&I

from Chicago, IL

Toca Vuur 12" wood rope-tuned animal-skin head djembe. Mine arrived in good tune; came with instructions on how to tune (it's a wood drum with a skin head and rope tuning: expect it might go out of tune a bit in transit). Sounds very good; bigger than 12" would make it easier to play, but bass is strong and all tones sound good. And it also looks good.

Amazing Djembe for the price

By markt

from Mooresville, IN

Just got this djembe, and all I can say is wow! I sat down and played for a good hour right out of the box. Tuned to perfection when I got it. And at the price its offered at, why would you not get it. If your looking for a high quality yet low priced djembe, this is it.

This one has it all

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I purchased the 12" model and immediately fell in love with the quality and craftsmanship. The deep bass and high slap range is more than I expected from a drum under $100. It has added a pleasant diversity to carbon copy sound. It's great!

I ordered the 10 inch and have been very pleased with it. Sounds good on recordings. Also use it at jam sessions and it's loud enough to still be heard with no mic over loud amped guitars and a piano. Bulit sturdy too.
