Tuning the Djembé

The Djembé is tuned by inserting a special knot into the rope system:

After the rope is inserted (as shown in the picture above) give it a hard pull downwards until you feel it "pop" into position. The result will be a new knot (exactly like the two shown above to the left).

You can build up to 3 rows of knots in most cases. The knot positions of the new row should be staggered between the knot positions of the lower row.

Be careful! The skin may burst when you stretch it too much!
