This 14" Ivory Coast djembe is larger than standard, suited for taller drummers or those who want a little more freedom for hand movement. The oversize shell design gives this djembe increased volume, deeper tones, and a deeper bass note. The highly-experienced carver uses traditional methods to create a professional quality shell using solid Iroko wood. The proportions are exact, the shell is of uniform thickness, the bowl is rounded inside and out, and the bearing edge is gently curved for optimal sound quality. As always, our satisfaction guarantee ensures you will have a positive buying experience.
