Anybody have a djembe setup ON their kit? Where do you have it? (pics?) how do you incorporate it in your playing ...or is it stand alone thing for you. I realize they are intended for hands but it sounds cool with mallets.
Real traditional djembe really are lead/soloist instruments, according to the instructors and performers I've encountered, as opposed to dun-dun. The super thin goat skins are meant to be loosened after each performance, and tightened very tightly to get that slap.i have one and play it separately before. but i just put an old Gretsch GTS mount and decided to mount it on kit. it is very awkward to mount up with any other components. Matt Abts ( Gov't Mule) and Jay Bellerose use this but i guess really as stand alone sounds in solos.
