The Wula Drum Store

Welcome to the Wula Drum Store!

It is our personal mission to find a great drum for every drummer. For this reason we have developed different models of djembe at different prices - something for everyone. If you don't see what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us to see what is on the way from Guinea. For more information about our models, check out About Our Drums. Each unique design is handmade by our team of Wula master craftsmen in Guinea, West Africa. 

 We hope you enjoy playing our drums as much as we do making them -- Keep Drumming....
