Introducing the Percussion Plus Slap djembe pack - rope tuned - 3 player pack

Djembes are becoming exceptionally popular within schools, music hubs and local community centres, and this pack is a convenient and cost-effective way for teachers to purchase drums for their classrooms. These drums are more than just a great form of music education for youngsters, they’re also a fun and therapeutic activity for all ages to get involved in. Nothing matches the joy of making music together, which is why we’ve created this pack, so you can play along with your friends and classmates.

Slap Djembes come with a wealth of features that make them easy to play, transport and, most importantly, give them a brilliant sound. With a colourful design, a well-tuned drum head and a durable construction, they’re everything you need for your therapy sessions, performances, demonstrations and more.

This pack comes with an 8”, 10” and 12” drum (see specifications for full pack details). You can purchase multiple packs or add individual drums to customise your order here, or for bigger groups, you can check out our 10 and 15 packs.

“The first thing I noticed about the drums is how incredibly light they are. This makes them ideal for use in educational settings that involve young children or older children who may find holding the instrument difficult.

The real benefit of these instruments is that the drumhead has been printed with graphics of the hand positions to show exactly where to play the drum to achieve the correct sounds. The construction is solid, they have good tone, are good to look at, and are fun to play.”

Andy Gleadhill - Percussion Plus Global Ambassador

There are many different techniques used to produce tones on a djembe and any of these can be used on our djembes. There are many different techniques used to produce tones on a djembe and any of these can be used on our djembes. The printed graphic on the head of the drum offers suggested hand positions for the three main tones on a djembe: slap, tone, and bass.

With this easy method, teaching and learning is simple and allows you to tailor your class to include visual as well as instructive and aural learners, providing an inclusive way into music making for all levels and abilities.

Fun look, vibrant sound

The colourful pattern wrapped around and bonded to the drum gives a fun look suitable for classes and personal use, as well as festivals, demonstrations, and events. Their lightweight body and carrying strap also allows for easy transportation between and during playing sessions or events.

How to play

The design on the drum head shows examples of hand positions that can be employed to obtain a fabulous variety of tones from the drum, from punchy bass to cracking highs. When you hit the skin, let your hand bounce back allowing the sound to ring.

The Bass

The best sound is achieved in the centre of the drum. Keep your palm flat and stiff and strike the drum firmly.

The Tone

Straighten all your fingers at the same time. There are numerous hand positions that can be used to create the tone. Think of your hand as a straight extension of your arm, and you should get a solid ‘thud’ sound.

The Slap

This stroke can be played in the same position as the tone, the difference is that one relaxes the hand and arm to hit the drum with a slap-like motion. Spreading your fingers out slightly when they strike the djembe helps create a crisp clear sound.
