Blemished Discount Djembes
You may have noticed the term “blemished discount” being thrown around on our site. We wanted to take a moment to clarify what this means to those newer customers. We maintain a strict quality control standard here at Mother Rhythm Drums that is virtually unmatched anywhere in the industry. We inspect every single drum to be sure it measures up to our size measurements, and cosmetic standards. Though some degree of variation is to be expected in all hand-made products, we really pride ourselves on being meticulous in our selection. Blemishes may entail scuffs, scratches, very minor repaired hairline cracks or knots in the interior, thin spots or discoloration in the skin, smaller head diameters etc.
The question then becomes what do we do with the drums that don’t match up? After all, they generally remain unaffected in terms of sound quality. We came up with a clever response, one that is good for the customer on a budget: Sell them at a discount. Lately you may have noticed that we have quite a few of these bouncing around on our new website, discountdjembes.com Over the years we created a strong backlog of these drums, and as we have some major shipments coming in soon, we’ve finally decided that it’s time to let them go.
Not bad timing, when you consider that across the djembe industry prices are on the increase currently—that’s just another of the many ways that we work with our customers here at Mother Rhythm to create mutually beneficial transactions, so that you walk away feeling that we truly care for you, the customer.
