djembe
« on: April 23, 2009, 05:17 PM »
My housemate, a professional flutist, just started djembe lessons at the university and needs to buy one.She prefers one that is not tuned with ropes.Can you recommend a brand like Toca etc. that would be suitable and not break the bank?Drum must be larger than the one she has which is 9 inches in diameter;her instructor said that was too small.She would contact him, but he is out of town until her lesson next week.She is going to teach me once she learns,so I have a vested interest in this.Any info would be great.Thanks, Bart.

Sorry I was unable to get back to you sooner.

I'm not familiar with Moperc. You'll have to give us all an update on the forum as to what you think of the drum.

To my inexperienced ears, the djembe sounds good, but I know nothing about djembes;it certainly "looks" like a quality instrument and the company has an impreesive web site, so you might want to check it out.
