The djembe is a great instrument and fun to play. Learn your three basic tones and start pounding out some rhythms. A djembe and a tambourine mounted on a stand can sound startlingly like an entire drum kit.

those are great, specifically that one. If you ever need it re skinned though, bring it to a shop, its not as easy as you may think.

I bought one of the higher end doumbeks a while ago, and its great for jamming. Ive been a drummer for almost 11 years, so the rhythms came naturally to me, but Ive got some good youtube videos for learning stuff, ill post them here once I find them

Congrats. The djembe is a fun instrument to play, but deceptively difficult to master the tone & slaps so they are crisp and distinctive. The key is learning to relax when hitting the head. Easier said than done (for me anyway). I used to study for a year or so with a master drummer from Guinea. He made it look so easy. Check out the following YouTube videos of master drummers Bolokada Conde & Ibrahima Camara.

This setup, plus a kick drum, is all the drummer in my band uses.

That's pretty cool... I bought a little djembe to mess around with a few weeks back, but these are some great resources! I think I'm going to use it in my next video now...
