African Dunun Sets or individual dunun drums are available on special order. We have refined the art of building solid dunun drums out of local hardwoods in a method that saves so much wood compared to hollowing out a solid trunk. 95% of ordered Dunun from RHD are walnut wood, so we have held back with how many dunun we import from West Africa. We are able to keep the costs low because there are no importing / shipping charges.
We do, however, recognize that there is still a want for traditional instruments so we offer special order African Dununs. Typical turn around is about 3 months as we don’t stock them often, but can bring in a set and even have the African Dunun customized in Mali before it comes to us.? Please contact us if interested.
