  3. Yeah. That's fine Nick, it looks like the shell rests on adjustable feet, a
    14" drum is fairly standard.

    I'm replying to your mails now chum.

    thanks; i've already replied to you. :) my main concern is that the stand
    will hold a rope-tensioned drum (since the brackets are attached to tuning
    bolts in the photo). would the brackets cause tension problems if they're
    attached to the rope?

    again, pardon the stupid question. :)

    Nick,
    WHile I don't have access to a Gibralter djembe stand real quick,
    if I recall correctly the drum is NOT held by brackets either
    on tuning bolts or ropes. I think there are like three bumpers
    on long screws that grip the top of the drum and there
    is a strap that goes around the zoom tube as well. I'd say you do NOT
    want to attach anything either to tuning bolts or ropes!
    The last time I inspected the Gibralter djembe stand was at
    PASIC so my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I do recall that I was
    rather impressed at it being well made and seemed to do the
    job well. Presumably time will tell once it arrives.

    Adding a dejmbe to the kit or just looking for funky new sounds?

    Hint: Djembes don't play well with drumsticks. Use the bottoms
    out of thick plastic (round rod style) coat hangers. Round
    all sharp edges. Traditionally one uses a thin "switch"
    type of stick. The village women chew the end to make it
    soft so it won't cut the drumhead! Americans wrap duct
    tape around the end! :)

    Nick,

    I use the Gibraltar djembe stand all of time with my rope tension =
    djembe. I've never had any problems with it, and it is perfectly suited =
    to the task.

    BTW - Remo made a (way overpriced) djembe stand that is ideally suited =
    for their djembes, and it can be used for rope tension drums as well. =
    The Gibraltar stand was made for all djembe drums.
