An all-new series of traditional djembes hewn from sustainably-harvested wood while producing warm depth and tone.
For 2012, Toca has released the all-new Origins Series Djembes. Origin Series wood drum shells are carved from a single piece of environmentally friendly, plantation-grown mahogany and are lathe-turned to maintain uniform thickness. The exterior shell features two traditional hand-carved designs – a classic African Mask motif and an intricate Celtic Knot pattern.
The interior of the bowl of the drums feature lathed grooves and a rough-surfaced pattern that virtually eliminate overtones. The drums’ bearing edges are hand carved to precise specifications. The Origin Series Djembes have natural goatskin heads. The resulting sound is one of the best drums ever offered by Toca.
