Drums & Drum Repair

Joel and Heidi of Matica build d'jembes and other wooden drums starting with ecologically-harvested logs. They carve drums by hand using a chisel and do orginal and custom designs. Matica also sells eco slat-style djun djuns and oil drum djun djuns.

DRUM REPAIR is also available. Drum Doctor Joel Melendez. Highly regarded for fixing d'jembes and other skin drums. A complete overhaul or a just tuning- whatever your drum needs



Heidi and Joel,
Thank you for a great job!
You both were wonderful and pulled a tremendous audience of very involved children. The children were in awe of your amazing talent and feats. Parents and children alike were at full attention to your every move and entertaining display. What more could be asked.
