Availability: In stock




This Melina Wood Pro Djembe from Mali is an exceptional value for a lighter weight, top-grade hardwood drum from Djembe Country. At 14 x 24 it is an over size instrument for larger adult drummers, yet Melina hardwood is lighter weight than other Malian djembe wood types, making it easier to carry to class or gigs. Our Mali djembes are crafted by expert carvers using the best selection of wood, finished with top-rate skin and rope, and feature a 2 top ring tuning system with skin over. At proper tension these 14 x 24 Mali Melina djembes have a nice semi-dry sound quality, with easy tones and slaps and strong bass. If you're looking for a lighter weight West African djembe that performs like a solo djembe, this Melina wood Mali djembe is a great option.

  • 13-14" OSD wood, 24-25" full height, 8.5-9" OSD base, 14-18 lbs
