Product Overview

The Paragon Heartwood Mali Djembe 13x24 is our most affordable Mali djembe drum that produces an advanced quality sound with simple design and basic features. 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 seasoned, hand-carved Hare, Lenke, Dugura, and Acajou hardwoods, solid one piece construction, uniform thickness, imported direct
