    Thomas Guei Signature Series

    Djembemafia proudly presents to you the brand new djembe drums from long awaited Thomas Guei Signature Series collection! The whole collection consits of just 10 very special djembe drums. Thomas Guei is one of the very best djembe masters (djembefolas) in the world. Thomas comes from the Ivory Coast, and is famous for his amazing djembe technic, djembe sounds, unbelieavable speed, melodies and most of all, for his unmistakable unique musical language. His refined taste isn't only in his muscal production, but the choice of his instrument - his personal djembe drums as well. All djembe drums from the Thomas Guei Signature Series underlie a strict selection and specific criteria which Thomas insists for each of his own personal drums. The crucial criterion is the dimension. The smallests djembe drum form the whole series has a 36cm width head, the playing surface. The smallest one! You will even find such a big beast at 39,5 cm among them! All these djembe drums are made only from very hard, dense and slow growing african woods. The tree needed to build such a big drum is at least 100 years old. Only this fact makes the tree itself, its wood and the drums built from it very rare and valuable. All djembe drums from the Thomas Guei Signature Series are skinned with rare "djembefola" spotted thick goat skins. They all have a white or black tackless rubber foot and special decorative tack work which accents the artistic carvings. Only the most precious and expensive materials were used to build these djembe drums and they were carried out with the maximum of care, love, effort and time. I´m honoured to present to you the result of collaboration between Djembemafia and one of the best djembe players in the world, Thomas Guei. I build all my drums with love, as I would build them for myself. It is a Djembamafia standard. Those were built with the same love and effort and according to the specific demands and needs of Thomas Guei. You can see if he likes the result by yourself on the video sound checks Thomas Guei recorded for each particular djembe drum from the collection, chosen himself with pleasure.
