Shaped to avoid errant overtones and focus on an extended range of fundamental pitches.

The djembe drum, rich in overtones, is one of the most popular instruments indigenous to West Africa, and is suitable for stage and drum circle. Everything in the design of the ancient instrument conspires to deliver a wide palette of overtones.

When conceiving the LP Aspire Bowl-Shaped Djembe, Latin Percussion designers looked to the belly of the beast--to the distinctive top portion of the hourglass/goblet resonating cavity that is responsible for the germination of the daunting low fundamentals and snapping high frequencies. The operative assumption was: if we alter this chamber, we can focus the sound. The assumption proved correct.

LP engineers have created a special bowl shape for the Aspire djembes, which serves to attenuate errant overtones and focus an increased range of fundamental pitches. In addition, the open tones gain incredible sustain and projection, a characteristic that is highly desirable in a djembe drum.

Created of kiln-dried, environmentally friendly Siam oak, the LP Aspire Bowl-Shaped Djembes are 25" tall and are fitted with 12-1/2"-diameter hand-picked goatskin heads. Includes EZ Curve rims, designed to minimize hand-to-rim trauma, while mechanical tuning is simple, smooth, and flawless. The drum may be played on your oak, maple, or exotic hardwood floor due to a protective rubber, non-skid bottom.

The Latin Percussion Aspire Bowl-Shaped Djembe is an innovation in true LP style--that is, the pursuit of authentic indigenous sounds and the researching of new ways to attain them. The modestly priced instrument is suitable for home, studio, stage and drum circles.

  • LPA-632 Djembe orange tie dye

    As reviewed by Drummer-David on 5/15/2009

    This is a great drum. Tones range from deep (very deep) to clean crisp highs. Some overtones, but they add to the overall sound. Would buy again without hesitation. Purchased the Orange tie-dye - color is a little darker than shown on the web site. Looks more like fire than a bengal tiger. Can see lots of wood grain. Looks super - plays just as good as it looks. Also purchased the conga set and there is variation in color and tie-dye process. One of the congas matches the Djembe perfectly, the other is more like that bengal tiger :( but they all sound fantastic! Enjoy!
