Our Mali Pro Djembe selection represents some of the finest African-built djembes available anywhere. Typically drums of this quality are carved in Mali, then finished (skin, rings, rope, etc..) in the US. But our Malis are imported direct from the builders as complete drums, leaving more value-added with the African artisans. The wood selection, materials, and craftsmanship on carving and fixing are according to our precise feedback over a long partnership with our African artisans, all resulting in a superb sound response right out of the box. If you are looking for a high-end, professional grade djembe, but don’t want to pay $500-$650 for a djembe custom built in the US, our Mali Pro Djembe will fit the bill. These are the best African-built djembes we offer, and we guarantee you be more than satisfied! From the heart of the culture that gave us the djembe!
