Introducing the Percussion Plus Carnival Slap Djembe mixed 3 pack - mechanically tuned

The original Slap Djembe - a perfect musical tool for schools. 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. With their instructive drumheads and robust construction, Slap Djembes make a brilliant addition to music education settings.

Slap djembes have become well known for their excellent ease of play, lightweight portability, and impressive sound. The Carnival generation also stand out with their colourful designs, finely tuned drum heads, and durability, making them an excellent choice for group sessions, performances and demonstrations. The mechanically tuned packs help provide a joyous and technically intriguing drumming experience for small ensembles, making them ideal purchases for schools.

These mechanically tuned djembes combine the practicality of the pre-tuned 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. Carnival Slap Djembes have proven popular for SEND learning, Whole Class Ensemble Teaching (WCET) and even as part of CPD programmes for teachers looking to develop their musical options and skills!

This pack comes with an 8”, 10” and 12” drum (see specifications for full pack details). You can purchase multiple packs or add individual drums to customise your order here, or for bigger groups, you can check out our 10 and 15 packs.



“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.”

Andy Gleadhill - Percussion Plus Global Ambassador

Let's play together

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 techniques 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. It's no surprise that these drums have become very popular in schools over the last few years.

Fun look, vibrant sound

The colourful pattern wrapped around and bonded to the drum gives a fun look suitable for classes and personal use, as well as festivals, demonstrations, and events. Their lightweight body and carrying strap also allows for easy transportation between and during playing sessions or events.



The design on the drum head shows examples of hand positions that can be employed to obtain a fabulous variety of tones from the drum, from punchy bass to cracking highs. When you hit the skin, let your hand bounce back allowing the sound to ring.

The Bass

The best sound is achieved in the centre of the drum. Keep your palm flat and stiff and strike the drum firmly.

The Tone

Straighten all your fingers at the same time. There are numerous hand positions that can be used to create the tone. Think of your hand as a straight extension of your arm, and you should get a solid ‘thud’ sound.

The Slap

This stroke can be played in the same position as the tone, the difference is that one relaxes the hand and arm to hit the drum with a slap-like motion. Spreading your fingers out slightly when they strike the djembe helps create a crisp clear sound.
