Dundun and Talking Drums

Eco-friendly, fantastic sounding Dundun and Talking Drums

 

Powerful, deep toned dundun (doundoun, djundjun) are the perfect complement for Djembe groups and traditionally set the underlying rhythm. We make two types of dundun: recycled hardwood with cow skin heads and a revolutionary new bamboo range with goatskin heads. All are eco-friendly and relatively lightweight and each set contains 3 drums with beaters.

 

Talking drums have a variable pitch and can be used for solos or musical conversations and add another dimension to ensemble playing.

Protective drum hats and dundun stands are also available (see the Drum Bags & Accessories section).
