DESCRIPTION

These advanced level Wula drums from Guinea are part of the Cosa series, offering great sound quality with a hardwood shell and a good quality hook up. Wula is widely known among professional djembe drummers as producing some of the best quality shells in the world. The Wula Cosa offers an exceptional value with an authentic, handcarved specialty hardwood shell from Guinea, a natural, thick goat skin, and imported low-stretch rope. The sound is crisp and bright with good projection and distinction between tones and slaps, with a low, full bass response. Every drum we sell from our drum shop is put on our rope puller and custom tuned before shipping, ensuring that it is play-ready right out of the box. Along with a money back guarantee, our professional Wula Cosa djembes feature:

  • General Size Specifications:
  • Total Outer Diameter - Including Outer Rings: 13.0-13.75in
  • Wood Bearing Edge Diameter: 11.75-12.5in
  • Total Height: 24-25in
  • Base Diameter: 10-11in including black tire rubber
  • Weight: 15-20lbs
  • Carved from one piece of solid Lenke, Hare, or Acajou hardwood by skilled Guinean cultural artisans using traditional methods.
  • Wood seasoned and handcarved in Guinea, West Africa, hydrated with shea butter sealed with a special blend of hardening oils to prevent cracking
  • Thick goat skin from Guinea, wet shaved and finished with skin-twist technique
  • 5mm low-stretch drum rope for the 30-32 pairs of vertical ropes, first row of tuning started. Rope colors vary.
  • 4mm low-stretch drum rope for top and bottom rings, double hitch loop pattern on bottom ring. Rope colors vary.
  • Blue cloth used to wrap bottom and top rings, including flesh hoop to prevent rust damage to skin
  • Extra tuning rope included, wrapped around neck for storage
  • All 1/4 in. rings custom fitted, locking in the tension, making sound more even
  • High durometer black rubber pad installed on the bottom edge, for wood protection and playing comfort
  • Carefully hand shaped bearing edge for even sound
  • Simple to moderate geometric carving style covers one fourth to one half of the base
  • The pictures above are representative of the drums we have in stock, ready to ship. All drums will match the written description, and will be very similar to those shown in pictures above.
  • This djembe was built at the Wula drum factory in Conakry, Guinea, and imported by Djembe Direct, where each drum is inspected, tuned, played, and carefully packed before shipping to you.

    If you are comparing the Wula Cosa series to the Wula Standard Series, the main differences are wood selection, decorative carvings, and size: Wood quality will be one notch lower in Cosa vs. Standard, with allowance for more minor wood repairs, knots, and sapwood to heartwood transitions. The Cosa djembes are 11.75-12.5in bearing edge outside diameter, with Standard djembes being 12.5-13.75in. Standards have more detailed carvings that cover more of the base than the Cosas. We are not offering individual drum selection from our inventory at this time, except you may request a specific wood type, such as Lenke, Hare, or Acajou.
