Our hand made custom djembes are special drums we build here in the USA. There is no other hand drum like it in the world and has become one of our best sellers as well as a sort of definition for what we do. Available in a variety of woods, and can always be customized, these custom hand drums are eco-friendly, built locally in Waynesboro, VA, and have a huge traditional sound. Like all of the instruments we build in our shop, these instruments are designed and built one at a time to insure the best of quality.
Our Custom Congas, or Tumbadora, are built with an extremely unique stave design. This design enables us to have complete control over every aspect of the drum that will effect the overall tonal properties. From the wall thickness to the bearing edge, to the precise head – belly – foot ratios, our Congas are designed to have maximum warmth and sustain. Not only is our design uniquely modern, but it also gives way for much less wasted wood, less stress on each stave, and the opportunity to build with a variety of woods and options.
The implementation of this design is just as important as the design itself. The craftsman throughout these congas is superb. From our perfectly shaped and smoothed joints to the four part finishing process, these conga drums look as beautiful as they sound! Take a closer look at our Congas.
This XL Ashiko is one of our favorite and defines what an ashiko drum should be. Check out these drums and you'll soon know why we design them all from the ground up. Many factors go into the voice of an ashiko, but because of it's cone shape and the hard projection it has, the shape of the drum has a big impact on sound. You wont have to worry about quality when buying an ashiko drum from RHD!
I believe that music is a universal code, one that bypasses language and communicates directly with our soul. Rhythm is the foundation of life.
