It's a matter of time (to accumulate experience and to try different things) and a matter of how many drums you do. I got fairly good by the time I'd done the first hundred or so. But, nearly ten years after building my first drum, I'm still learning new tricks.worldcal wrote:masterpiece. how long does it take to acquire skills to build beautiful drum like this ?

And thanks, I am very proud of this instrument. It's treated me well for the 3 years that I've had it.
I currently have two top notch drums (this one and a Mali shell from Djembe Direct). There are a lot of people in the LA area who have equally fantastic djembes, but it's rare that I come across a djembe that I personally like more than my two drums. I definitely got very lucky, because I actually purchased both drums online without ever hearing or playing them.
