Product overview

  • Kambala Bassam Djembe with Synthetic Head - a radical departure from the norm - 
  • There have been synthetic headed djembes before, especially from Remo and Toca, but these were 100% factory-made and 100% synthetic in the body and head
  • This Bassam Djembe is a genuine African Djembe made in Ivory Coast, but the use of a synthetic head gives it an edge for outdoor use where exposure to the elements has always been a problem for traditional drums
  • Kambala djembes are well known in drum groups as a reliable mid-range drum but they have always previously used goat skins
  • Skin 13"
  • Height 24.5"
  • Base 10"
  • Weight 11.2kg
