About the Shell & Hide
This Bougarabou was hand carved from Djala. Djala is a very popular and attractive djembe hardwood. It is most commonly a rich, dark red colour when sanded and finished. Its high density gives it strong projection and carving styles usually bring out the tone.
Thick skins are rich and warm and once settled they have a very melodic quality. Cow skins are typically a lot thicker than goat, offering rich melodics. Suited to experienced players with tougher hands and well developed technique. We take care to find the best hide for the shell to maximise its dynamic range.
The first tier in the hardwoods, the density of these shells provides noticeable depth of sound. Extra finishing time put into playing edges and exterior detailing.
