DESCRIPTION

The Ivory Coast djembe shells are carved to specific dimensions for optimal sound performance, including a wider throat and increased base flare. This 12" size is well suited to many female drummers, smaller hands, or for portability requirements. The Ivory Coast djembe is a sort of mix between the Guinea and Mali shapes, with a slightly rounded bowl, stout neck, and more rounded, flare in the stem - among the best shells carved in Ivory Coast anywhere. The Iroko wood is medium to dark brown, evenly colored, and a little thicker than the average West African djembe shell. Covered by our satisfaction guarantee, these Ivory Coast djembe shells feature:

  • Standard size bowl: ~12" top OSD wood; ~24" tall; ~10" base OSD wood, 13-17 lbs.
  • Seasoned, solid wood treated with karite (shea butter) and adjusted to arid environment
  • All carved of hand picked Iroko wood, legally harvested and seasoned in Ivory Coast
  • Shell is carved to even thickness throughout, with sharp, well defined seat and throat
  • Bearing edge may or may not already have some rounding work
  • Ledge carved into neck for bottom ring, improves tuning and stability
  • Bottom ring typically pre-installed on drum, 1/4" rebar
  • Foundation carving is three rings with a row inverted diamonds, may have more embellishment
  • Inside surface is clean and well carved, free of splinters
