An exquisite hand-carved djembe with superior sound and secure tuning.

The Ivory Elite Pro djembe drum brings handcrafted beauty and rich tone to your percussion setup. This professional-grade instrument is custom carved from legally harvested, sustainable mahogany wood. The mahogany is hand selected for quality and carved extra thick for incredible sound across an unsurpassed tonal range. With a forged steel neck ring built specifically for each drum, the three-ring tuning system stays tight even during energetic playing. Multiple coats of teak oil protect the wood while controlling its expansion and contraction within a temperature controlled environment. This precise craftsmanship yields a djembe that looks and sounds stunning. The Elite Pro djembes are hand made, custom carved professional grade instruments prepared with the finest materials. Each drum goes through a rigorous inspection of quality control using hand selected #1 quality mahogany hardwood. The mahogany used is legally harvested and certified to be legal timber that is part of a replanting program to protect our forests.

Keep Solid Tuning With a Custom Forged Steel Neck Ring

The Ivory Elite Pro djembe has a forged steel neck ring custom built for each drum. This provides a rigid tuning system that stays locked in place as you play. The neck ring fits into a built-in groove in the hand-carved shell for seamless integration. Tightening the ropes pulls against the solid steel ring rather than the rope itself, eliminating slippage. You can tune the drum's goatskin head precisely and be confident it will hold its tension through long sets and dynamic playing styles. The custom neck ring offers tuning stability musicians can rely on.

Temperature Controlled Wood Treatment Preserves Tone

To protect and preserve the resonant mahogany shell, each drum is hand rubbed with up to 20 coats of teak oil. The wood is kiln dried within a temperature controlled environment that prevents cracking and maintains stability. This meticulous process allows the natural beauty of the mahogany grain to shine through while controlling moisture content. The result is a durable shell that maintains its rich, warm and well-balanced tone for years. Even through changes in humidity and temperature, you can trust the Ivory Elite Pro djembe to sound its best.

Take It Anywhere With a Custom Fitted Bag

The Ivory Elite Pro djembe ships with a custom-fitted blue backpack-style djembe bag. With interior padding and exterior cotton fabric, the bag protects your drum during transport and storage. Carry the djembe hands-free on your back using the padded shoulder straps. The front pocket and water resistant interior lining keep accessories dry and organized. Wherever your performances take you, the included bag keeps your instrument safe while making travel easy.

Learn Technique With Online Djembe Lessons

To help you get started playing your new djembe, lessons in basic techniques are included. Follow along with videos that teach you how to tune the drum properly and play foundational rhythms. With the addition of play-along tracks, you can apply what you learn while developing timing and fluidity. Please note that each drum is hand-carved, by master carvers, and sizes will tend to slightly fluctuate. No two drums are exactly alike which makes each one a unique work of art.
