The Meinl Percussion Jumbo Djembe combines a traditional djembe design with robust, consistent-sounding synthetic construction. This djembe has an extra-large head that pumps out deep, resonant bass tones to anchor drum circles or acoustic sets. Its synthetic shell and head stand up to all weather conditions while retaining precise tuning and eliminating the humidity concerns of traditional skin heads. With traditional djembe proportions like a wide base tapering up to a narrow rim, it feels familiar in your hands. Vibrant graphics celebrating African culture encircle the shell for visual flair. Lightweight and easily portable in the included gig bag, the Jumbo Djembe goes anywhere the rhythm takes you.

Resonant Bass From a Room-Filling Head

The Jumbo Djembe's diameter synthetic head delivers a thunderous low end with impressive projection that cuts through the mix. Compared to a standard djembe, the two extra inches provide a dramatic boost in bass response and overall volume. You'll feel the low frequencies resonating through the shell and reverberating off walls and ceilings. When you want your djembe to provide a powerful rhythmic foundation at drum circles, jam sessions or live performances, this Meinl Percussion model has the sonic muscle that leaves an impact.

Consistent, Weatherproof Tone With Synthetic Shell and Head

While traditional djembes use skin heads and wood shells, the Jumbo Djembe utilizes synthetic materials for the head and shell. The durable synthetic head withstands changes in humidity and temperature that cause inconsistent tuning in skin heads. It retains its precise tension and rebound in any playing environment. You'll always get optimal response and the focused, projecting tone you want. The matching synthetic shell also withstands the elements while providing strong, even resonance. With its synthetic reliability, this Meinl djembe delivers unwavering quality of sound gig after gig.

Traditional Design With Authentic Djembe Feel

The Jumbo Djembe sticks to a conventional djembe design, as it has a wide base that tapers up to a narrower rim, providing an ergonomic shape that fits comfortably under your arm. The synthetic shell may feel different than a carved wood body, but still transmits plenty of resonance. With traditional djembe proportions all around, the Jumbo Djembe gives an authentic playing experience.
