Mamady Keita's Signature Series Djembes are made following all the criterias of the Master...
These are the cream of the cream shells, these djembe shells has been pre-dried and the wood that has been used is precious exotic wood (Lenke, Khare, Dugura, Djalla, Kolo Kolo) especially dedicated to the making of the djembe.
The rings are made with stainless steel, double hitches on the top and down ring.
The rope is a german pre strech sailing rope of 5mm for the top ring and 4 for the down ring...we also use the 5mm for the vertical.
The bearing edge is filed to optimal playing comfort, and the goat skin covering it is selected according to strict selection criteria for thickness to match perfectly the specification of the shell...
For aestetics and like MK loves it, we mainly use white spotted goat skin.. the lunar skins .. prepared following a specific "ritual" to get the best out of the skin as quickly as possible in terms of sound and comfort..
