This dunun set is part of the Classic line of imported drums exclusively from Africa Heartwood Project. The dunun (DOO-noon) family of drums (aka djun djun or dun dun) provides the rhythmic and melodic base for the most West African ensemble drumming. This family of double-headed, cylindrical, rope-tension drums consists of the doundoumba (largest), sangban (medium), and kenkeni (smallest). Our drums can be bought separately or as a set, and are covered by our warranty, and feature: * Average Sizes: Dundumba 16"x32" - Sangban 12"x24" - Kenkeni 10"x22" * pre-tuned and tested before shipping, comes to you ready to play * solid one-piece construction using Mansonia, a legally harvested hardwood abundant in West Africa * Wood treated with shea butter, coconut oil, and lacquer to beautify, hydrate, and seal wood * new African cow skin on both sides, hair left on to mellow the sound and for protection * new, extra-strong synthetic rope, long lasting and durable * crown rings wrapped in cloth for long rope life * each bearing edge coated with wax to protect and seal the wood * tapered wood dunun beater included with each drum (3 sticks total) * the sale of this dunun set not only ensures continued income for the cultural artisans in Ghana to rely on your purchase, but also underwrites the operating expenses of non-profit Africa Heartwood Project. ***Authenticity note: World Percussion USA is the only authorized seller of Africa Heartwood Project instruments on this marketplace.
