This large bag fits most djembes, ashikos, bugarabus, or dumbeks with maximum OSD of 13.5" (including tuning hardware) and 24.5" tall. Features include: * famous Kente cloth print from western Africa * triple-layer construction: cotton cloth, inside and outside with foam padding inbetween * zipper and reinforced shoulder straps * tie strings to secure the belly of the drum * medium-duty grade offers some protection from elements and abrasion, but is not suited for professional level protection or airline travel * although all bags are multi-colored kente print, colors and patterns of bag or straps may have variations from picture

These cases are absolutely beautiful. The straps are sturdy and zippers run smoothly. The only thing I didn't like about them when they arrived is that there are a lot of loose threads inside where seams end. I don't think the seams will come undone because of them but just to be sure I spent a lot of time tying off the ends and trimming the excess thread.

I'm very pleased with this case. its heavy duty and looks like it will last for the life of the djembe. very nice workmanship and it will protect my investment.
