About the Shell & Hide
This Primo Series Djembe is hand carved from Lenke. Lenke is a premium djembe timber, striking the balance between density and weight. Often referred to as the spiritual wood, lenke is typically orange or deep yellow in colour and offers great projection and the full tonal range of sound. It is well-suited to bigger drums and often produces powerful bass.
Medium skins are well balanced with warm tones and bright slaps. Cow skins are typically a lot thicker than goat, offering rich melodic sounds. Cranked tightly, they can really scream! 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.

It’s a beauty. Did arrive with an 1/4”slight tear in the skin on top rim. I’m hoping when I tune it that it it maintains its integrity.
