Got a broken drum? Or are you thinking about becoming the owner of a genuine African Djembe carved in West Africa? Alex Salvador builds new drums from drum shells carved in parts of West Africa such as Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Ivory Coast.
Using high tension, low stretch rope specifically designed for drum making, and high quality goat skins, Alex custom builds each drum on demand – depending on the buyer’s budget and personal preferences – at his home in Riverside Gardens, Townsville.
He also provides a drum repair service for congas, bongos, djembes and bougarabous with broken skins.
