Introducing the Percussion Plus Slap djembe - mechanically tuned
Djembes have become extremely popular in recent years, with classes starting up in schools, universities, music hubs, and local community centres. The interactive nature of learning djembe drumming not only makes for fantastic music education for youngsters, but also a great therapeutic activity for all ages.
Slap djembes are well known for their ease of play, lightweight portability, and impressive sound. They also stand out with their colourful designs, finely tuned drum heads, and durability, making them an excellent choice for group sessions, performances and demonstrations.
These mechanically tuned djembes combine the practicality of the pretuned drums with the musical refinement of the rope tuning. They come with a wrench which allows players to easily tune the drums, without losing the vibrant tone of the djembe.
“The mechanically tuned djembe has a sturdy but attractive construction which can withstand punishment even from the most enthusiastic player. There is plenty of space between the head and the hoop to give a comfortable feel. With the bolt tensioning system, this djembe can be easily tuned to the players preferred sound and damaged drumheads can be quickly and inexpensively replaced.”

With these Slap Djembes from Percussion Plus, you get a great looking high-quality instrument with an innovative 'how to play' guide printed on the drum skin. There are many different techniques used to produce tones on a djembe and any of these can be used on our djembes. The printed graphic on the head of the drum offers suggested hand positions for the three main tones on a djembe: slap, tone, and bass.
With this easy method, teaching and learning is simple and allows you to tailor your class to include visual as well as instructive and aural learners, providing an inclusive way into music making for all levels and abilities.
