http://www.X8Drums.com One of the most common questions we hear from our customers is “Which Size Djembe is Right for Me?” In this video, you’ll learn why selecting the correct size djembe is so important. You’ll also view all of the various size drums for a clear understanding of the differences between the sizes. Instruction by Kenya Masala.
When choosing the size of your djembe, you should select a drum that stands tall enough for you when sitting down to play. The base of the drum should rest on the floor and the drumhead should rise about two or three inches from the top of your legs, in a sitting position with the drum leaning away from you. If the drum is too low you will have a difficult time striking the head because your knees and legs will be in the way. On the flip side, if the drum is too tall you will find that you’ll have to lift your shoulders when striking the head and this will surely lead to fatigue much quicker. You should always be in a comfortable position and shouldn’t be straining your body when playing.
