The deep bowl and larger head diameter of the 13” djembe gives this drum a deep bass sound, a rich tone, and a thick slap. Lightweight for a drum of this size, the 13” Dancing Drum Djembe is an impressive combination of professional quality design, durability, and value.
The Dancing Drum Signature Series Djembes are acoustically designed from the inside out to produce a deep bass sound, rich mid-tones, and crisp slaps. Each drum is carefully mounted with a high-quality, unbleached goat hide and pre-tuned to sound great out of the box. Triple-ring mounting systems and non-stretch 5mm rope hold the head tightly to the drum to help consistently retain the desired pitch. A rubber foot on the base of the djembe offers protection to the shell and surfaces that it is played on. Available in three original sizes, 9", 11", and 13", and now a new 12" Pro-Series (calfskin), djembes should only be played with the hands.
The wood that goes into our drum shells is plantation-farmed, harvested and replanted on a 7-8 year cycle. This choice helps to avoid some of the problems with deforestation that djembe manufacturers are causing in Africa, Bali, and elsewhere in the world. The staved construction of our drum shells allows us to utilize the best pieces of wood, while discarding any pieces that may lead to cracks or weaknesses. We've paid extra attention to detail at every step of the design, and each drum shell is produced with a perfectly round and even bearing edge to ensure the most comfortable playing experience.
If you would like to tune your djembe, we have a free tuning video here.
* All new djembes purchased through Dancing Drum are eligible for our exclusive repair policy, for one year from date of purchase. In the unlikely event that you need to replace your drum head, you can ship us your damaged drum and we will repair it for a reduced fee.
