Our Paragon Heartwood Mali Djembe 13x24 is our most affordable Mali djembe drum that is produces an advanced quality sound without all the bells and whistles. Handcarved in Mali out of a solid piece of seasoned specialty hardwood, and hooked up with a thick, natural goat skin, with basic two top-ring design, black rope, and no base carvings. Crank up the tension for a semi-dry solo djembe with high slaps and distinct tones, or ease up for an all-around excellent playing ensemble djembe. Similar to our Paragon Heartwood Mali Pro Djembe, this drum is more affordable because of a different tuning system, no artistic carvings, and basic low-stretch rope.

This Mali djembe features:

  • 12.5-13.5" OSD wood, 24-25" full height, 8.5-9" OSD base, 18-20 lbs
  • Inventory includes Hare, Lenke, Dugura, and Acajou hardwoods, solid one piece construction, uniform thickness, imported direct
  • Wood seasoned and hand-carved in Mali, West Africa, treated inside and out with lots of shea butter and coconut oil
  • Thick Mali goat skin, wet shaved and hydrated with a bit of shea butter
  • 5mm braided black drum rope for the 22-24 pairs of vertical ropes, first row of tuning started
  • 4mm basic black drum rope for top loops and bottom loops, double hitch loop pattern on both rings
  • Black cloth used to wrap bottom and top rings, including flesh hoop to prevent rust damage to skin
  • Extra tuning rope included, wrapped around neck for storage
  • All 1/4" rings custom fitted very tight, keeps tension even
  • Traditional 2 top ring tuning systems make changing the head straightforward, skin cut above top ring
  • Well shaped bearing edge, hand rounded for playing comfort and skin safety
  • Beautiful wood grain patterns uninterrupted by carving, this plain base is simple and elegant
  • The pictures above are of one of many Mali djembes imported from the same group of carvers; all djembes will be similar to photos with minor wood and skin variations
