The key-tuned Djembes are the most popular of Remo's World Percussion instruments. They're as widely used by touring professionals as they are in drum circles. The high slap tones and deep bass response from all Remo Djembes are from the Type 2 FiberSkyn 3 drumhead and Acousticon shell. There are 4 lugs on the 10 in. model, 6 lugs on the 12 in. and 8 lugs are used on the 14 in. + models, all in a Earth-pattern FabriFinish covering.
Traditional Instrument, Modern MaterialsRemo djembes are based upon the traditional drums of the West African Mandingo people, originating from the great Mali Empire of the 13th and 14th century. Developed with the assistance of world-renowned Djembe players, Remo's key, rope, and cable-tuned Djembes feature superb sound quality, lightweight design, are easily tuned in any kind of weather, and always easy to play. These versatile instruments are then combined with Remo's modern advances including a Type 2 FiberSkyn 3 head on this drum key-tuned model.
