Toca Goes Natural With Street Series Djembes

By: Toca Percussion  06-Dec-2011

Inspired by the natural world. In touch with its roots. Our wood djembes are full of character and their liveliness and playfulness comes through with every beat.

Our environmentality is to always think green. And you don't get to be one of the world's best djembes without keeping the world in mind. That's why our djembes use only certified, plantation grown Mahogany wood that's treated and dried in buildings powered by solar technology.

The term "street" has come to refer to something real . . . something natural. Such is the case with Toca's new Street Series Djembes.

The "street" element of these drums comes in their organic nature. Each shell is carved from a single piece of environmentally friendly plantation-grown mahogany wood. Twenty coats of teak oil are then applied to the shell to protect and preserve the wood. Each drum comes fitted with quality goatskin heads and a traditional rope tuning system. The result is an instrument that sounds as earthy and natural as it looks.

Street Series djembes are available in small, medium, and large head diameters (approximately 8", 10", and 12" respectively) in a choice of Cherry Stain or Brown & Black Stain finish. Best of all, they come at drummer-friendly "street" prices. If you're looking for great value in a djembe, hit the Street. . . and then hit the stage.
