Kalimantan Djembe Drum
I am trying to think of a percussion instrument that kids and adults can play with and dance to Kalimantan djembe drum rhythms, without either of them feeling awkward. Ironically the X8 Drums Kalimantan Djembe keeps popping in my head. It is sixteen inches tall drum whose diameter is 8.5 inches. The drum’s construction is a solid mahogany logwood, and on its drumhead is a premium selected goat hide and has a traditional rope tuning system.
If you are into nature and wildlife conservation or related liberal movements, and you are troubled by the felling of trees to make the drum, it is reassuring to know that the wood used get sourced legally from a government regulated plantation. New trees get planted each time one gets chopped.
Even if you haven’t seen the X8 Djembe Drum, it is easy to identify it thanks to its distinct features. The drum has an attractive Kalimantan bird design carving on its base, and its shell has a brown matte wood finish topping. Lastly, it has a tote bag fitting used for carrying the drum. You have therefore no excuse for not taking the percussion instrument to gigs.
The drum is an ideal gift for kids, but adults can also enjoy it as travel drums. When you purchase the set, there is no need to be anxious about how to play. Each drum has a two lesson DVDs, and a drum maintenance guide to walk you through your first steps. What you will learn includes; the basic djembe drum notes, how to tune the drum, play your first djembe rhythms, take good care of it, and how to remove the drumhead.
