You can’t deny it. Rhythm is POWERFUL. When it resonates with you, the experience goes beyond just listening. Connecting to a community, nature or oneself is what draws people to the energy of drumming. The best part? Rhythm is easy to feel and can be created by anyone.

🎵

An overwhelming majority of percussionists and drummers utilize the djembe to facilitate a rhythmic connection with their audience—and it doesn’t stop with trained musicians. Drum circle participants, therapists, hobbyists and a host of other individuals from all walks of life have found and shared their inner sense of rhythm with the djembe. And it’s no wonder why—its strong roots in ancient West African culture and foothold in modern music give the djembe a timeless sound.

🎵

The range of the Black River djembe reaches from resonant, deep bass tones that create a drone note effect to ringing high “slap” tones that can send out a cracking sound wave over any indoor acoustic show or outdoor jam session. Play toward the center of the drum head with your palms for deep bass and strike the edges with the length of your fingers for slap tones that pop. 

🎵

No skills are required – pre-tuned right out of the box, anyone can sit down and begin playing the MEINL Black River djembe without any skill required. We pre-stretch the tuning ropes to make sure your drum remains in tune.

  • For players of any skill level — you don’t have to be a trained musician to play the Meinl Headliner Series djembe — this drum can be enjoyed for therapeutic purposes, playing jam sessions, participating in drum circles or performing with a band.
  • Carved from one solid piece of plantation grown mahogany — the Meinl Headliner Series djembe is carved from solid mahogany that projects a rich tone with booming low notes and plenty of sustain — this shell stands 20″ tall from base to drum head (medium).
  • Hand-selected traditional rawhide head (10″ diameter) — goatskin heads produce classic djembe sounds with a warm, yet cutting tone while being remarkably durable — play toward the center for a boomy bass sound and slap the edges for sharp, popping accents.
  • Mali weave rope tuning system — 18 nylon rope runners (4 mm thickness) securely fasten the head to the shell for a long-lasting and proper tuning with a classic look — comes ready to play and fully tuned right out of the box so you can play right away.
  • Hand carved motif (Black River finish) — the hand carved mahogany shell is finished with a horizontal ripple effect that evokes the image of a flowing river — the hand made design means no two djembes are exactly alike, making each drum one-of-a-kind.
  • Responsibly sourced — our membership with the Timber Legality Assurance System certifies that our wood products are legally logged, transported and processed — this initiative is in an effort to be responsible with the utilization of natural resources.
