Overview

The Remo Djembe is key-tuned and fitted with a Skyn Deep head. These hand drums produce a satisfying range of sounds from high slaps to deep bass tones. The durable, lightweight Acousticon shell delivers excellent projection and is unaffected by weather conditions. A heavy-duty rubber bottom protects the shell from ground impact. The wide selection of cotton print fabric finishes provide great visuals.

Originally from West Africa, the djembe drum has spread around the world to become the hallmark instrument of the world-beat movement. Since at least 500 A.D., the djembe has been used in healing ceremonies, rites of passage, ancestor worship, warrior rituals, and social dancing. Find out how much your hands can say with this traditional drum. Remo's revolutionary materials provide great sound, durability, and looks.

This is my favorite Djembe I've tried. I've played the 14" and the 16". Both are crisp on the slaps, and have decent bass tones. I prefer the 16", and I keep it tuned a little bit looser. The tension rods are a little odd to try and tune since they are right against the shell, but I'd rather have that than a rope tuned Djembe or a high rim. The drum is very beginner-friendly, as well. Soft on the hands. I've also used it in a drumset situation with brushes and medium-soft yarn mallets, where it is the snare, bongos are toms, congas are floor toms, and a 22" kick drum. Always get great compliments on the sound of the Djembe. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I dislike the cost because it prevents me from buying a whole bunch of these great drums. I rely on Musicians Friend to have some great deals. Compared to rope tuned drums, the smooth shell of these drums tend to slip between your legs. I've been trying to figure out how to prevent that with parachute cord wrapped around the drum otherwise I can just buy a djembe strap. The designs are limited in availability. I only had one on backorder kinda tells you that these drums are popular Their sound is unique. May have a slight ring for some. They definitely hold their own in the drum circle. They are rugged after dropping mine a few times due to the mech tuners attached to a djembe strap that had a "U" shaped drum hook it kept slipping out of. Nothing busted and drum didn't go out of tune. I easily fixed that with a zip tie. It is best to buy a strap that tis in or has an enclosed hook. I also fell off my stool( a three legged portable stool which folded in a few times) and the drum hit the ground and survived without problems. It is light compared to a "traditional" rope tuned djembe. It doesn't feel like carrying a log around. I brought out my roped tuned drum once and returned the following week to the drum circle with my Remo.
I have bought a 16 inch djembe and the 12 inch.The 12 inch Remo djembe has been the workhorse. They need little to no tuning out of the box. As a beginner it is fool proof for me. The designs are totally cool. In comparison to a rope tuned djembe it does have a slight ringy sound but that also varies from drum to drum. The bass sounds are deep and the slaps are crisp. Nice weight compared to my roped tuned djembes that are carved out of a tree. They have a carry handle. The drum head can be replaced but have not had a need to do so. I have had my drums for 3 years and haven't had a need to be tuned. I also live in a cold environment and the drums have had no problems with the weather.
Even though I rate this as an 8 I have no other mechanically tuned djembes to compare against the Remo. I feel that the quality is superb enough to do this review and to go back and order more of these drums for my friends and family.
Of course I would love it to be inexpensive.then I would collect the other designs. Too bad I'm not pro enough to get an endorsement. For the beginner it is monkey proof. It has great sound. I see the veterans and beginners like myself use this djembe in the local drum circle. I would most likely buy more of these for my friends to create my own drum circle.

                I almost ordered the 14 inch drum head and I am so glad I didn't. The 12 inch drum head and overall size of the drum is plenty BIG. Plus there is the price consideration. I would tell most people on a budget, especially first time buyers, the 12 X 24 is all the drum you will EVER need and it will serve you well. I picked out the least expensive 12 X 24 they offered in the Mondo series, and then waited for a sale so I got it even cheaper. This is the 3rd and last Remo I plan on buying. I will own it from now on and It will take on any size venue. Even the 10 inch Remo Festival series I still own has a BIG sound. The picture shows a rope shoulder strap. Mine did not come with a shoulder strap. The drum is too big to shoulder any way for any length of time. I asked my wife to be my model so I can show you the size of the 12 X 24.

                  This djembe came highly recommended by a pro player, love the sound, look and feel. Not thrilled with how long it took to get it - when I ordered it (for a gift), nothing was mentioned about it being on back order. Bummed that it didn't come in time, but worth the wait.
