One of Remo's most popular line of Djembes, this standard 12" key-tuned djembe with 6 lugs features the rich brown textured Earth design FabriFinish covered shell.
Remo djembes are based upon the traditional drums of the West African Mandingo people, originating from the great Mali Empire of the 13th and 14th century. In Africa, one of the Djembe's functions is as a healing drum. Remo Djembes are based on the same traditional Djembe tone and form combined with Remo's modern advances including a wide range of tuning systems, heads, finishes and sizes. REMO'S key-tuned djembes have had great success as the most user friendly djembe in the world. With features like portability, tunability, durability and playability, it's no wonder why it has been the choice for thousands and thousands of professional and recreational drummers for many, many years. The key-tuned Djembes are the most popular of Remo's World Percussion instruments. They're as widely used by touring professionals as they are in drum circles. The high slaps and deep bass tones from all Remo Djembes resonate from the FiberSkyn TM 3 drumhead and ACOUSTICON TM shell.
