Toca SFDJ-10RP Freestyle Djembe RP, Diametre 10", height: ca: 51cm, colour: Bali Red, lightweight and durable seamless synthetic shell, ideal for drum circles, teachers and all level of players, hand selected goatskin head for authentic look and sound
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.
Bought for a children's group as a drum for training. Drum small size that makes it easy to play as a child sitting and standing. Compared with African sounds very different. The membrane of goat but the same processing plant as in plastic drums from Toca company. All the benefits in a wooden body. High slaps. Little Bass.
Very interesting color and pattern. Rope tuning system. Very high quality made. I can not say anything bad. But for me, "Toca" in the first place is a manufacturer of plastic instruments.
Ideal for a gift or for beginners, children and those who need a cheap wooden drum small.
About service delivery, and packaging can write a lot of good thanks Thomann, all the best!
