Traditional shell contour and the 25" height allow the djembe to be played standing with a strap, seated, or on a stand with congas
This ancient African instrument has become a world percussion favorite because of the extraordinary array of tones it produces. The Giovanni Djembe is beautifully crafted of fine ash in the traditional shape and is accented by a fabric band decorating the waist of the drum. A clear finish brings out the vivid grain of the wood and enhances the drum's frequency range. The select goatskin head is chosen for its resonance and tonal diversity. A Comfort Curve II rim makes playing easy on the hands.
The Giovanni Series Galaxy Djembe incorporates the best of all worlds: vividly grained North American ash shell with perfected contour, luxurious high gloss lacquer finish, select goat skin heads, LP Comfort Curve Rims, quick/easy mechanical tuning, and battleship grade construction. It can be played standing with strap, seated, or on a stand aside congas. And, of course, it wouldn't be complete without LP's "road kit" containing tuning wrench and lug lube.
