Dunun

The Dun Duns or Dununs are the bass drums of the West African drum battery. Manito Percussion Dunduns are all solid shell construction. They can be made in the traditional rope tuned style using Anit-Stretch Kevlar Core rope, or tuned with our handmade Stainless Steel hardware.

The family of Dunduns includes three sizes. From smallest to largest they are the Kenkeni, Sangban, and Dununba. We are often able to cut all three drums of a single set from the same log, and almost always from the same tree.

Kenkeni: 11″ x 22″

Sangban: 13″ x 24″

Dununba: 15″ x 26″
