17" x 9 1/2" Mali Djembe Drum (these dimensions are relative as each drum is hand made not manufactured)

Overseas Connection is the exclusive importer of Kangaba drums.  No other African-made drum can compare--shells are carved to the correct proportions; metal rings customer welded to fit each drum; the best goat skins are used; bearing edges perfectly level, smooth and rounded; wood well sanded and finished inside and out with liquid shea butter; European 2-part polyester cord is used.  Each drum comes professionally tuned.

Also available: 22" x 12" (Item 202801)

A real advantage of these drums is the drum head repair service offered by the importer.  If your drumhead breaks, they will rehead it, tune it, and return it to you within 7 business days for a nominal fee. Please call our customer service department for details.
