Drum Repair: Re-building ~ Re-tuning ~ Repair

If you have a djembe or other traditional drum that requires repair or re-building, Archaic Roots provides professional djembe servicing and re-skinning with many years of experience. I repair drums from all over the southeast, from Metro Atlanta to Asheville. I usually schedule a personal pick for most drum repair jobs, but you can also mail your drum in for repairs as well.

 

 


Drum Rebuilding:

Drum re-skinning starts at $120 (including skin). Sometimes, further work and or materials may be necessary or recommended (i.e. replacement rope, metal rings and welding, woodwork and body repair) Since drum repair is a fine art and will vary for each instrument, all jobs taken on will be carefully inspected on receipt and quoted accordingly.
We gladly offer discounts for schools, education centers, etc.

 

Re-tuning Rope Drums

  • Fine-tuning (including a tuning lesson) $20
  • Full tune up (vertical ropes need pulling) $40

 

Drum Repairs

Archaic Roots provides experienced artisan techniques, so if you have any other problems (cracked shell, broken rings, sharp rim), I’ll assess the drum and see how I can help.

Root Gathering
In the not so distant past, those who carried ancient knowledge were called root gatherers or root workers. These people not only used roots & plants as medicine, but also connected with our ancestral roots for ancient healing practices and traditions. The "Root Gathering" is a mini-festival that will help to facilitate intimate connections with others who hold ancestral knowledge and wish to share it with the world. During this event we all will co-create an environment where we help spread our passions of ancient traditions with a quality selection of participants. This is a consciously limited event to sustain greater sharing and connection. Limited to 100 tickets sold and not open to the public.
