The new Wula Drum Ropeless Djembe has arrived!
Wula Drum in New York has created this alternative style of djembe drum directly in response to requests for a hardware drum. This drum has solved a huge problem for many people. And for some of us who need to tune our drums to different situations in a timely or quick manner this is the best drum.
Why? One of the main reasons is that it maintains the beautiful Wula Drum sound! Furthermore, it is calf skin (for durability and tone). It can be tuned instantly by almost anyone, even people with no experience. You can gain independence and no longer need to be dependent on someone else if your skin pops or if you want to tune your drum.
This is not a new concept. However, this is the first time a mechanically tuned drum has been made for sale with the amazing Wula Drum sound!
This drum has exactly the same sound as a rope tuned djembe with out the hassle of putting knots in the roped drum.
A hardware drum is drum which uses metal hardware and tuning lugs. You simply turn the nuts with a common wrench to tune the drum up or down instead of pulling ropes.
Tuning a drum can be important for many people especially musicians. Many professional musicians need to tune their instrument up and down, especially when traveling or for different types of gigs and diverse musical situations. You no longer need to put difficult to pull knots in your drum or bang your drum on the ground to tune it.
The drum uses shortened tuning lugs so they do not rub your legs when playing seated or standing.
This was a problem for some people on earlier hardware drums made by other drum makers.
This drum is very balanced, easy to play and comfortable. And the sound is truly amazing.
Many older people or people with certain physical problems simply can not deal with pulling ropes. And of course, some people just do not want to deal with rope. This drum was created as a direct response to their needs.
Currently Wula Drum is using West African Calf skin on the Wula Ropless Djembe Drum which gives the drum fantastic tone and slap and it is also very durable. The tone is full and the slap crisp with excellent bass tones and muff.
If you need to change a skin it can be done in a matter of minutes rather then days! Other skins will be offered in the future or can be custom ordered as well.
You can also order pre mounted heads. Please check out the sound demos and stay tuned to www.wuladrum.com for more new and exciting news on this and other new products as well. Exciting things are happening at Wula Drum!
Please note that Wula Drum is still making and will continue to make fabulous rope tuned drum and this drum is a special model and represents 1% of Wula Drum sales.
