This set of dunun (DOO-noon, aka dun dun, djun djun), imported direct from Ivory Coast, West Africa, is matched well in terms of size and sound, and represents a step up in construction and sound quality from the Ghana Classic Dunun Set. The hardwood Iroko and thicker cow skin, tuned properly with thicker nylon rope, creates a very resonant, tonal sound quality, perfect for African dance classes, performances, and practice. We are really pleased with the quality of the skins and wood on these dunun, and the resulting sound.
