Actually, we are looking for a small kit (4 or 5 pc. set) for our church for me to play.
Yes, the djembe is certainly a great instrument. Just got it last September. Mine has a 9 1/2 inch head, so it certainly makes a wide variety of sounds. Glad someone else on here knows what they are!!
I have three boys and they all have drums of some kind or other. My oldest son, 18, also has a djembe, bongos and a set of timbales. I have twin boys, 9, and one has a set of bongos while the other has a set of timbales. Soooooo, under one roof right now....we have 2 djembes, 2 bongos, and 2 sets of timbales. Sometimes my wife simply yells, "okay, that's enough for one evening!!!" lol!
