hey cool, lets make this our OTHER DRUMS thread. heres my sweet djembe. as a south african i have played and tried a lot of djembes over the years, and then i found this one. this is the loudest djembe ever. it has massive tonal separation and a beautiful timbre. it was very expensive though, but i felt i needed to buy one and so i spent years finding 'the one'. it is called: HIPPO. for first time djembe buyers a sign of a good djembe is the closeness of the knots around the rim. like lugs, the more the better. mine are so close you cannot see a rim, its all solid knots.
PS: the strap means i can hang it from my waste and walk around with it at comfortable playing height.
