Go back to the roots with the TODJ-8CK djembe by Toca Percussion. 8 inch model.
The Origin series by Toca Percussion is a range of instruments made from wood grown in sustainable plantations, with concern for the environment, and treated in solar-powered ovens.
The Toca Percussion TODJ-8CK is a hand-carved djembé from a single piece of mahogany. It has a warm and vibrant resonance, thanks to its selected natural leather, with a diameter of 8 inches (just over 20 cm). The tuning system is by strings and the interior of the chalice has grooves carved to eliminate some harmonics. The height of TODJ-8CK is 16 inches, about 40 cm.
The decor is discreet, with Celtic motifs engraved in the wood, which give it a traditional and organic look.
The sound of the Toca Percussion TODJ-8CK is very present and well defined, making itself heard perfectly when played solo or with other instruments, thanks to the natural resonance of the wood and the natural skin.
Toca Percussion's mission is not only to create the best percussion instruments in the world, but also to protect the environment in doing so, preserving the spirit that drives the brand to create products that are and sound natural. As each instrument is handmade, each djembe is unique.
Originally from West Africa, the name djembe comes from "Anke djé, anke bé", an expression of the Bambara people of Mali, which means "let us all come together in peace". The djembe is a sonically versatile instrument, being possible to extract various sounds using various hand and playing techniques, either solo or accompanying other instruments.
The Toca Percussion TODJ-8CK from the Origin series is an affordable djembé, ideal to add to your collection of percussion instruments. With a balanced and dynamic sound, it responds as well to traditional rhythms as to more urban ones.
