Product Overview

Our innovative Travel Dunun Drum Set removes portability and storage problems common to full-size dunun. While still offering full volume and depth of sound, the compact size and reduced weight make it easier for performers and teachers to travel with their dunun.


  • Sold as a set with average sizes: Dundumba 16\"x16\" - Sangban 13\"x13\" - Kenkeni 10\"x10\"
  • Pre-tuned and tested before shipping, comes to you ready to play
  • Solid one-piece construction using Mansonia, a legally harvested hardwood abundant in Ghana
  • Wood treated with at coconut oil and shea butter, then sealed on the outside to preserve and protect the wood
  • New African cow skin on both sides, hair left on to mellow the sound and for protection
  • 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
  • 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).

    Good Drums - Heartwood Project Travel Dununs

    Posted by Donald Cowdrey on May 14th 2024

    * For the price, you can't beat these compact dununs. Shipped quickly, packed very well. Light weight and good sound.
    * The 2 things I would change: 1) use thicker rope 2) one of them used an unconventional technique for stringing the rope - crossed instead of just vertical - will be hard to tune that one :-(
    Over all a very good deal for anyone looking to save some space and keep weight to a minimum !!!
