    14 inch drum Africa Heartwood Project

    Posted by Rebecca Dills on Feb 22nd 2024

    I'm so joyful about my new 14 inch drum made by Africa Heartwood Project. Please let them all know they are making Supreme quality djembe drums. Resonates and is so light but huge! Grande! I can carry it and play it holding it with my legs easily. And I'm a grandma. Carving is robust and hand made. The drum head is super tight. Love this djembe drum from Kentucky, USA.
