Lenké has exceptional sound characteristics and is very well suited for Djembe drum carving. It promotes clear sounds and good differentiation. The shares of the bass, tone and slap sounds are balanced and distinctive. Lenké has always been counted to be the most valuable African timber for Djembe making due to its hardness, density, elasticity, its durability, and resistants.
