Constructed with an Acousticon shell and a Mondo Skyndeep drumhead, the Mondo Djembe are the choice for thousands of professional and Recreational drummers worldwide because of their durability, tunability and portability.

Remo African Djembe Drums
Djembe drums have become very popular in recent years not only because of the infusion of African and Middle Eastern musical styles into popular music but also because djembe drums lend themselves to a wide range of music. A variety of sounds can be pulled from a djembe (pronounced "GEM-bay") drum, from the deep and booming bottom tone to the bright, singing top sound. A djembe can easily be played to emulate a set of congas or bongos and the kick and snare of a drum set as well as the music that djembes are usually associated with. That's why djembes have become the one drum to carry!

Remo Acousticon Djembe Shells
Remo Djembes are based on the same traditional Djembe tone and form combined with their modern advances, particularly the REMO Acousticon drum shell made in the U.S.A. Remo's proprietary Acousticon is an environmentally friendly shell material made with 100% recycled wood fibers. Acousticon djembe shells have all of the tone and resonance of solid wood shells but are much lighter (more portable!) and less expensive to manufacture. This results in a great-sounding and durable drum that in a wide and dramatic variety of Designer Touch and Fabric finishes, looks as dramatic as it sounds and sounds better than it costs!

Why Key-Tuned Djembes?
Unlike traditional fixed-head or rope-tuned djembes, Remo has led the field with the great advance of its key-tuned djembe drumheads. You can easily re-tune your Remo djembe to the dominant pitch you prefer and in the rare event that your djembe drumhead becomes worn out or torn, it can be very easily replaced. The Remo newly engineered key-tuned contour lug brackets make tuning more precise than ever.

Remo Djembe Drum Heads vs. Animal Hide Heads
The main business of Remo is making drum heads. Remo first found great success in making drumheads for acoustic drums, replacing calfskin with highly-specialized polyester film materials that well emulated the warm tone and easy response of calfskin while being far more durable and also, immune to fluctuations of the pitch and tone of the drumhead caused by temperature and humidity changes in the weather. In the 1980s, Remo began applying this technology to the making of drumheads for world percussion instruments. As they accomplished with drum set heads, Remo has dramatically succeeded in creating authentic-sounding, weatherproof, and extremely durable drumheads for djembes.

Big, beautiful djembe with great bass tones


This is a BIG djembe with a beautiful tone. I was tempted by the 18" model for more bass, but went with the 16" and am very happy with how good the bass tones are. I also really like how it has standard tuning lugs rather than the traditional rope-tightened head. It will be much easier to keep the right tension on the head. It is also a beautiful instrument. I went with the kintekloth finish and I really like it. The finish has a nice texture - it is not just a print. I'm really happy with this purchase. I also like the Remo Dual Slider Percussion Strap for holding the djembe.
