Djembe Buying : Choose your Djembe Drum Class

Djembe Art, African DrumWe have divided our Djembe offer into six different value categories. Our quality demand for each class is explaned under Quality. The more stars, the finer the quality of material, workmanship and sound. For Djembe beginners it is also recommended to start with a good instrument. Because the drumming technique is much more easily and rapidly acquired and mastered with the correct hand and body posture, whilst with a fine tone the playing naturally provides much greater satisfaction and pleasure. Therefore it pays to select a quality Djembe. All displayes drums are available and can be shipped within 24 hrs. The following pages are multilingual. On the left hand side you find the main item photo. Above it the name of the item, the country of origin and the name of the wood in German, English, Latin and African. Underneath the photo is the Order No. (Art.Nr.) and the price. On the right hand side you see a German description, the size and an orange box with a short English description.

Sound descriptions or audio files


We gladly help you find your exactly matching favorite drum if you can explane what you expect. Our experience is that soundfiles on the internet can't possibly show the true sound range of a live Djembe. Therefore we prefer sound discriptions that we supply in German language on each individual Drum. However, we are prepared to make short recordings for you in individual cases, to give you an audio impression of your favored instrument :-) Please be aware of the fact that the natural drum sound is much fuller and more detailed than the audio file can reproduce it. Often the deep bass frequences and many of the high frequences can not be heard on ordinary computer loudspeakers. You can use quality earphones go get a closer impression, but despite all technique it never reaches the level of the natural drum sound. One other important point is that audio files don't show the sound differences of individual drums clear enough. We hope for your understanding.

 

The international Djembe market


Unfortunately there are no international standards for African Djembe drums. Our quality descriptions and definitions are largely copied by many dealers worldwide without truely reaching the same standard. For nonprofessionals the truth of the advertised quality is hard to determine. Not every so named professional is in reality one. Some of the many offered so called professional Djembe drums would not even be accepted for our Basic Class category. Important know-how and detailed instructions about Djembe drumming can be found in our German Djembe-Forum. Please don't hesitate to ask us for further information.
