Types of Hand Drums

  • Cajon: An easily recognizable boxy member of the hand drum family. There are two types of cajon: flamenco, which feature internal snare wires for a more familiar snap, and Peruvian, made without for a boomier, organic sound.
  • Djembe: A staple at campfire jams and outdoor hangs, the djembe is a hand drum of West African origin. Coming in many shapes, sizes, and materials, there's a djembe to fit about any imaginable application.
  • Congas/Bongos: Fixtures in latin music styles such as merengue, bossa nova, and cumbia, congas and bongos are two of the most common hand drum types. For reference, bongos are the smaller, stouter drums usually in a pair, and congas are the larger, almond-shaped drums that require a stand.
  • Shakers: This broad category includes everything from cylindrical and egg-shaped shakers to shekeres (the large jugs covered in beads) to maracas. The only real qualifier is that the instrument, well, shakes.
