Our Perspective

The Adinkra symbols represent popular proverbs and maxims, record historical events, express particular attitudes or behavior, or concepts uniquely related to abstract shapes. The shapes all have specific definitions providing an excellent teachable moment for students. - Randy

By Remo. Tunable djembe - Adinkra design finish. The djembe is the former "long distance phone" of West Africa. In Africa, the djembe now functions as a "healing" drum, used in many ceremonies, from weddings to funerals. Presently the djembe is the most popular African drum played in Europe. Based on the traditional djembe tone and form, combined with Remo's modern advances, these drums have a wide tonal range with crystal clear heights and a rich deep bass sound. Replacement heads can be special ordered. The Acousticon shell is manufactured from recycled hardwood fibers and is unaffected by climatic changes; the Skyndeep head gives an outstanding authentic ethnic drum sound.

Replacement Heads: Remo has recommended the following -
12" Fiberskyn 3 Type 2 Mondo Head model number MO-2512-FA (253404)
14" Fiberskyn 3 Type 2 Mondo Head model number MO-2514-FA (253405)
16" Fiberskyn 3 Type 2 Mondo Head model number MO-2516-FA (257425)

Has a good sound, also impervious to moisture and damp environment of the Caribbean, rain, mildew. Much easier to care for and protect than traditional goat skin head. No replacement dilemma.

Christmas present for my son - liked this design and particularly that the head was designed like the shell. I have 14 Remo drums at my school and I know you can't go wrong with a Remo.
