Once you’ve decided that you want to play the drums, you’ve only won half the battle. With choices ranging from full electronic kits to the humble Bergen Freestyle Djembe, finding the perfect choice for yourself can be tricky.
If you don’t already know what you want, then we suggest you read this First Time Drum Buyers Guide. We’ve filled this with all sorts of information you might find helpful.
The Djembe is the drum most commonly associated with African drumming. While the truth is that African drumming is played in a wide range of instruments, the Djeme is still an instrumental part of African drumming. The Djeme is a perfect lightweight solution to your drumming needs.
If you want to play the drums, but don’t relish the idea of carrying around an entire kit, then you should definitely consider a Djeme or maybe even a Cajon. You could join or form an acoustic band and never have to worry about finding a roadie.
Bergen Freestyle Djembe
The Bergen Freestyle Djembe is a perfect entry into the Djeme market. It comes in at a great price and has a fantastic tone. One of the things that differentiate the Freestyle apart from other Djembes is that it is not made of wood. Instead, it is made from a synthetic material that is strong, lightweight and is resistant to changing weather conditions.
This means that it will be equally suited to the beginner player as it is suited to the experienced musician who lives on the road. Now there’s no reason to not join that local drum circle.
If you’re keen on adding one of these to your personal collection, check the availability online at our online store. If you buy one of the Bergen Freestyle Djembes online, we’ll ship it to you at no extra cost.
