All of our drums are handmade by Master carvers in our shops in Guinea and Ghana, West Africa.

Our carvers use age old techniques passed down to them through generations. We use only the finest quality materials and all our drums meet our strict quality control. To ensure our high standards are met, all our shells are hand carved, our rings individually fitted, and the skins are handpicked, wet shaved, female goatskins.

To maintain high quality and avoid moisture/mildew damage that is common with drums sent by sea, we always fly our drums from Africa to Canada. Our drums arrive fresh and arrive in perfect condition every time! Whether you are a professional Djembefola or just beginning your journey into West African drumming, your Goatworks drum will sound (and look) great for years.
