Naw, I don't think that style of broom is suitable for djembes. I usually borrow my broom from a friend of mine:

Proper djembe broom

Yes Marco I'm afraid he is 100% serious! Still, if you check out some of his other videos you'll realise that he gets a better sound with brooms than he does with his hands so maybe it's for the best.

Maybe this is the first in a series of playing the djembe with gardening equipment. Personally I'd like to see him play his djembe with garden shears. That would be a short but satisfying video to watch.

The cool thing about this technique is that it keeps your drum very clean. Right now I'm working on a similar technique that employs toilet brushes, that way you can play the inside of your drum too--and really get around the edge of the bowl for those hard to reach tones.

Naw, mops sound too squishy. Attack is nowhere near sharp enough with those.

Now, that's a proper djembe brush:
