Hi there! If you're in Bagshot, would Farnham be a reasonable distance for you to travel? I give small group drumcircles. And even some latin percussion to boot if enough people want it.

Best

After having drummed in the beautiful Spanish Hills with my bro, I returned and bought myself a djembe drum! I am in Bagshot, Surrey and would love to jam and learn with others in the local area! Anyone interested and local to me then please do get in touch!

Great location by the river. Come & play. Tell your friends. Best wishes, Lu

Hello there,
I am living near Canterbury. Does anyone know a website/shop which sells good, quality djembes but at a low price range (50-100) or even cheaper? Is it possible to get quality djembes at this kind of price? Not amazing professional ones but just great sound and good fun? We have a kind of fair trade/ethnic shop in Canterbury which sells them but I don't really know what is quality and what is not. Is there a great web shop out there in cyberland perhaps? Anyone know of good shop in Canterbury, East Kent area?

Kind regards,
Matthew

Hi Matthew,
You won't get very good quality drums for that price unless they're really small. The amount of work that goes into sourcing the wood, hollowing it out, carving it, skinning an animal, preparing/vetinary checks on the animal, tuning with quality rope and then shipping to UK all adds up quickly!! Anyone who is selling for less than that will be selling cheap immitations - so beware.
I know a guy who sources the drums directly from a drum making village in Ghana. He has 3 sizes - the smallest would probably be under 100 - if you're still interested. Please contact yaw_asumadu@hotmail.com.

Good luck
Anita
