As a djembe group facilitator I wanted to get a drum that was cheap, easy to transport and sounded good.
Pros: The sound quality is very good for a synthetic drum, especially around the edges. It may not have the depth of a wood drum but it can certainly produce good tone. It is very lightweight and easy for children to and play (Toca have different sizes of this same drum sold by Thomann) Carry bag and harness provided gives great value for money.
Cons: The lip around the edge of the striking surface has separated from the drum slightly which may happen if the drum is dropped occasionally (obviously) I have 3 of these drums and it has happened on 2 of them. A slightly more bizarre con is that the whole surface of the drum is very smooth which makes holding it to play a little more difficult and transporting that little bit more cautious as it can slide around.
Conclusion: I do recommend this drum for beginners and those who want to learn the djembe but don't want to pay a fortune. For drumming group facilitators or those who would like to take it a little more seriously I would advise you look at a rope tuned Toca djembe - these are available at a similar price.
