This Apex Djembe is lightweight and features an elegant plated-steel-radius counterhoop that feels great from the first beat. The specially engineered tuning brackets boast inverted, recessed tuning hooks that allow you to tune the drum with ease. The Apex Djembe will perform to your highest expectations for all levels of drumming.
Its synthetic Skyndeep Black Goat Stripe graphic drumhead screams volumes for any drumming activity, and will stay in tune in all weather. The Skyndeep drumhead features a small removable Sound Control foam dot under the drumhead.

Owned this drum for 6 months. Construction/Features: Well constructed, sturdy, weatherproof head, easy to tune...and it STAYS in tune. Playability: Excellent separation of tones...(deep in middle, tenor on the side, hard 'snap' on the outer edge). Even inexperienced players can get different tones on this drum with a short amount of practice. NOTE: Be sure to give the bottom "room to breathe" by keeping it angled and not flat on the ground...to get good bass tone General Sound: Hard core purists (with big bucks) may argue over arcane differences in sound quality but the Apex gives quite good sound. If you want more bass, then you need to go to a bigger drum size...not necessarily spend more money on another 12". Excellent mix of value and sound...
I have Played the new Remo 2 Pc Plastic Djembe in one of my Groups. Nice Looking drum and dark colored head. Nice hardware as well. Fault was on the High sl;aps it seems the head material is to thick and unable to get the crack a slap needs. On the Lows the bass does not resonate very long and stops short. other than that a pretty good drum for the money.
I bought this drum about a month ago and have used it in several performances now. I'll typically use a my 14" wooden remo djembe or fat congas cajon, but this has been a great change of pace! It has the warmth and depth of my wooden djembe, but gives me the higher highs than my cajon. This is a great deal for such a versatile instrument. In addition the composite material its made of makes this drum light and tough. This was a great purchase.
