This was a custom djembe build commissioned for a customer who wanted something a little better than the norm. I had this idea for doing the accent rings and he wanted me to incorporate the OM symbol. I laser cut and inlaid the OM into the bottom of the djembe.
The main wood is Black Walnut, with the reddish accents being bubinga and the lighter wood is a curly maple. The drum has a rubber foot on the bottom and I used a strong 5mm rope with custom welded rings and an African goatskin for the head. The drum sounds excellent and the customer extremely happy. Here is a video of myself playing this specific drum while a friend of mine plays a set of drums (that I also built) called Dunun.
