The biggest problem of a Djembe: It is not tuned or is tuned, how to tune a Djembe?

Do I have a djembe with the broken patch on the CDMX where I can repair it? I have a drum since childhood, I have not maintained it and it does not sound good when I hit it, what is the problem? Does my boyfriend give me a djembe as I refine it?

In tamboreria we can help you solve your problem !!

These are some of the most frequently asked questions in my head when we talk about drums, drums and percussion instruments and

It is easy to think that the instruments that are struck do not require their care and maintenance but do you really know what they are?

Many of us have the concern of playing the Djembe, and perhaps we have never had one, it attracts a lot of attention but we don't know anything about it, and some of us are lucky to have one at home but it is not tuned, or maybe it just has he broken patch

The first thing we need to know is its structure and the mechanism used to refine it, which in the case of Traditional djembes It is based on tensioning the strings that center the patch, there are different types of braiding being the most basic tightening pulling 2 strings with the tuning string and tightening around the entire circumference of the drum

In the tension of 3 strings the tension that is created is higher since a space rope is left to join the surrounding 2 and thus creating a beautiful tighter pattern

It is necessary that you check that the rope is in good condition since otherwise it can break with the tension exerted it is necessary that when installing a patch you have tools to help you between which you will need a rubber hammer and a resistant stick to be able to tighten your rope


How to know that the rope is loose?

-Usually a very tight patch gives you a strong and rich harmonic sound which will give an incredible sound depth

-You can pull the strings and if it goes along you will have to travel the excess rope by turning the entire contour of the drum until the looseness of the rope is reduced to the maximum to start with the braiding of the vertical lines

-If there is no excess but you can join the strings easily you will need tension to be able to tune properly

Remember that the Djembe is a drum that is played with the hands and many times the cause of a broken patch is that it is stuck with something that tears the patch, we recommend never wear drumsticks or other things to make it sound since this hurts the patch and you can break it very easily and that is one of the worst things that can happen to you
