The Apex Djembe's synthetic Sky deep Black Goat Stripe graphic drumhead screams volumes for any drumming activity and will stay in tune in all weather. The Sky deep drumhead features a small removable Sound Control foam dot under the drumhead. This feature produces less overtones for a more focused and dryer animal-like bass tone with rich slap tones. The Apex Djembe is manufactured using a traditional carved djembe design and molded from ABS durable plastic materials that are good for impact resistance. Remo ushers in a new generation djembe design with unparalleled sound quality and playing comfort. This djembe is key tuned with a Sky deep Goat Stripe Head.
