    DIY djembe stand

    Sign in to disable this ad
    So I need a stand to record my djembe, but seeing as they are ridiculously expensive, I decided to make one myself. I've got a couple of mic stands that I don't use anymore, and I was thinking this would be a good start. Maybe remove some stuff from it and add something to hang my medium-sized djembe on. It would however be great to make it adjustable in case I get new djembes and/or other skindrums.

    Now I'm not much of a DIY'er so I was hoping someone here had any good ideas..?

    The main reason I need a stand is because I'm going to use a (perhaps phaseflipped) Shure Beta 52a under the drum to pick up the bass and a couple of LDCs over it for higher frequencies.

    I always thought that it would be cool to purchase a manikin to hold ones djembe!

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    Now THAT is an idea (for a person with enough money and room)!

    Just found out one of my guitar stands is perfect for the job, so project completed, didn't have to do a thing.

    It's the problem inherent in the system.

    Sure. I didn't get around to record with it yet, but here's the stand:

    And here's my djembe attached to it. There is more than enough room for the Beta 52a under there.

    That's just great!
    Looks to be that you can get any microphone on a short boom stand under the djembe.
