Shaped to avoid errant overtones and focus on an extended range of fundamental pitches.
The djembe drum, rich in overtones, is one of the most popular instruments indigenous to West Africa,
and is suitable for stage and drum circle. Everything in the design of the ancient instrument conspires to deliver a wide
palette of overtones.
When conceiving the LP Aspire Bowl-Shaped Djembe, Latin Percussion designers looked to the belly
of the beast-to the distinctive top portion of the hourglass/goblet resonating cavity that is responsible for the germination
of the daunting low fundamentals and snapping high frequencies. The operative assumption was: if we alter this chamber, we
can focus the sound. The assumption proved correct.
LP engineers have created a special bowl shape for the Aspire djembes,
which serves to attenuate errant overtones and focus an increased range of fundamental pitches. In addition, the open tones
gain incredible sustain and projection, a characteristic that is highly desirable in a djembe drum.
Created of kiln-dried,
environmentally friendly Siam oak, the LP Aspire Bowl-Shaped Djembes are 25" tall and are fitted with 12-1/2"-diameter hand-picked
goatskin heads. Includes EZ Curve rims, designed to minimize hand-to-rim trauma, while mechanical tuning is simple, smooth,
and flawless. The drum may be played on your oak, maple, or exotic hardwood floor due to a protective rubber, non-skid bottom.
Latin Percussion Aspire Bowl-Shaped Djembe is an innovation in true LP style-that is, the pursuit of authentic indigenous
sounds and the researching of new ways to attain them. The modestly priced instrument is suitable for home, studio, stage
and drum circles.
