Large authentic African djembe drum featuring red ropes – made by African Masters – with traditional soulein design for superior form and sound quality
Meet “Bala”. At the top of the Master Series djembe collection, Bala has a powerful sound and presence, as well as a generously-sized playing surface. Made from smooth-grained Lingué wood and golden in colour, this djembe is carved in a traditional “soulein” form with minimalist outer form and a shiny protective coat. Sounding as good at it looks, once you’ve drummed with Bala, you’ll never look back.
* Price includes FREE drum tuning by Master Craftsman Mady Keita for the life of your new djembe.
