This episode of Percussion Review looks at the Remo Mondo Series Key-Tuned Djembe.


Play Cajon says:

Hello there. I have not done anything special to the Djembe or tuned it in a special way. I just tuned it to how I like it. There is still a ring present but its not too crazy.

the slapppppp the slaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap!!!!!

Nenad Pekez says:

Did you do anything special to reduce overtones? And how did you tune it to sound so smoothly?

Play Cajon says:

Sorry guys, Its a 12″

Meymeygwis says:

Thanks for the review!

I’ve used 2-3 of these tuneable Djembes for years as performance accompaniment. They play very well & being able to tune is a huge bonus. E.g. tuning the mid drum to D is great for Celtic inspired fusion. My background is largely AfroCuban so I’ve had to adjust my playing style to suit the Djembe; Conga style doesn’t suit this drum.

I’m less fond of the newer synthetic skin though; they’re tight but have too much ping & not enough warmth for Djembe.

Love your stuff! 🙂

Mr.Bear Hand drums & World Rhythms says:

Your Remo 12 has no indication of the well known Remo (key tuned) sustained after ring. Are you playing it out of the box, did you tune a special way or did you attempt the muffling that is recommended to reduce the ringing? I have played the 12 and have a Signature Series 16. My 16 had a pronounced ring and I tamed it to my requirements,with minor attachments of insulation tape under the head, without losing the bass or projection. Just wondering??
