These one-piece Djembes are made according to West African shapes and tuning methods, but are turned from local wood on the lathe. The inside is spiral-textured to encourage a dry tone.

With respect, Sylvan Temple also makes a bolt-tuned version, a simple and refined feel. These can make great Afro-Arabic fusion drums.
