Product Overview

Africa Heartwood Project djembes are hand-carved by experienced drum makers in West Africa. The Classical djembes are specially crafted with sound quality and playability in mind, with additional attention give to aesthetics. The 13"X24" is a standard size djembe, suitable for most adult male and female drummers. --------------Our Classic Cow Skin Djembe is built to the same high standards as the other Classical Heartwood Djembes, but features a medium-thick cow skin head instead of goat. Some djembe drummers really favor the cow skin difference, giving the drum strong, deep tones and thicker slaps, while retaining the full bass response. The cow skin djembe is great in a West African ensemble as a bass djembe, offering a distinct sound to set djembe accompaniments apart. If you are the kind of djembe player with a heavier playing technique, or if you just love the richness of a thicker skin sound, this djembe is for you! ----------Purchase with confidence, knowing each djembe is always individually inspected and tested before shipping. ----------(World Percussion USA is the ONLY authorized seller of Africa Heartwood Project instruments on this marketplace.

  • Warm, full bass sound, super strong open tones, and thicker slaps - Cow skin fullness of sound

    Have 2; 9 inch and 14. They are my favorite of the 6 I have. I now want to get this 13 inch cowhide drum from Africa Heartwood Project. Beautiful and lightweight. Resonant and good slap tones 4 inches in.

    Beautiful drum

    Posted by Dan on Sep 24th 2020

    Feeling blessed to have received such a beautiful instrument and to support such a cool organization. The cowhide drum is Amazing to hold and the bass sound can be heard for many leagues. The cow hide does kind of smell like a cow still, and this website form is capitalizing every first letter of the review which is strange. Thank you djembe direct! Have already had several jam sessions; this is a very loud and clear drum!
