Introducing the Percussion Plus Slap Djembe replacement head

These Percussion Plus Slap Djembe heads are the perfect replacements for your mechanically tuned or rope tuned Slap Djembe drums, as well as any other brand of rope or mechanically tuned djembe. They are made from synthetic materials with 8", 10" or 12" head diameters available for your drums. With the printed "how to play" design, it is ideal for learning how to produce the best sounds on the djembe, whether you want booming bass tones or bright highs.

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.
