20th Anniversary Djembe Set

Percussion

Meinl

Meinl Percussion has just introduced their 20th Anniversary Djembe Set ($399) consisting of a 12-inch Floatune Djembe and a soft, padded, carrying bag with the 20th Anniversary logo and a shoulder strap. The Floatune system eliminates the need for drilling and mounting external hardware on the shell and increases the sonic capabilities of the instrument. This system, combined with the Meinl “True Skin” head, produces maximum sustain and frequency response, resulting in the best possible djembe tone. The 20th Anniversary Djembe is available in three colors: African Brown, Red and Vintage Sunburst. Roland Meinl Musikinstrumente GmbH & Co., Distributed by TAMA Drums, Dept. P.O. Box 886, Bensalem, PA 19020; Meinlcymbals-percussion@t-online.de
