This djembe uses a unique pop-off head system for easy assembly and disassembly. The durable, synthetic pre-tuned head has excellent sound quality, yet is not susceptible to pitch changes due to weather fluctuations as experienced with natural heads. Head damaged? Just pop it off and replace it with a new head. As a bonus, the pop-off head may also be used on its own as a hand held drum!
The GMP air escape system permits sound to project when the drum sits on the floor while being played, thus allowing the user a choice of holding the drum while playing or letting it sit on the floor for greater ease and comfort. Perfect for school drumming programs, seniors workshops, drum circles and community events. Even preschool children can get a great sound and play with ease.
The lightweight composite body is covered with colourful sarong fabric and a very tough resin coating to keep the djembe looking new for many years.
The wide flared bottom of the air djembe gives a bigger bass sound and increases stability if the user decides not to hold the drum while playing. The rubber bottom edge resists slipping when the drum is played at an angle, and also protects both the drum and hardwood floors from damage.
Head size is 12"(30cm) and the drum stands 24" (60 cm) tall.
