This dark red stained bougarabou is carved of thick mahogany hardwood and produces huge thunderous tones. Each bougarabou is quite hefty and solidly built with a cow skin head to deliver big every time.

Bougarabou drums are normally played with only the hands in a standing position. They have a full, deep, rich sound which can be heard for miles and is effective at all dynamic levels. They produce a kind of bass melody in the total rhythm. in other modern drumming situations, they are often used to back up djembes and tammas in a percussion group.

We take great pride that this bougarabou is environmentally friendly. Each drum is made from legally harvested/Government inspected and certified Mahogany. The fact that we import these drums directly means that you get 'factory direct' prices and the finest selection of handcrafted djembe drums.

Please note that each drum is hand-carved, by master carvers, and sizes will tend to slightly fluctuate. No two drums are exactly alike which makes each one a unique work of art.

Bougarabou, Cherry Stain Finish March 5, 2013
Reviewer: Rosemary Calhoun from Chapin, SC United States  
X8 Drums gets a 5 star rating from this customer.  I have ordered two drums and several other items from this company and have been well pleased with the quality, the service, and the website descriptions.  I also ordered a CD and book on how to play the drums and have been delighted with this very comprehensive and concise book and CD of instructions.  Will use this company again in the future for any drum purchases.  The Bougarabou, Cherry Stain Finish Drum is not only a work of art but has the most beautiful tone and bass notes imaginable.  Such a pleasure to not only look at but to play.
