The Melina SP is our top melina djembe, with decoration on the full stem of the drum. Melina wood is lightweight for easy handling, and fast-growing for the most sustainable option. The wood is dyed to give it a rich, red tone. The Wula Step Drum Form locks the bottom ring into the bowl for tight and consistent tuning. The Wide Bowl, flared stem, thick white goat skin, and highest quality rope and rings all contribute to the legendary Wula Sound.
