The tribal mask bougarabou is a stunning work of art that sounds spectacular! Carved of thick mahogany hardwood the X8 line of professional bougarabou drums produce huge thunderous tones. Each bougarbo 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 14" head January 16, 2013
Reviewer: RS from TALLAHASSEE, FL United States  
I have the 10", 12" and wanted the 14" to match the cherry staned other 2, but I settled with the mask,  played the 3 together as soon as it arrived and the sound is great.
just like all the many products I have purchased from X8. I have referred many drum friends to UR company and all who purched stuff were also happy with the products.  customer survice is great and helpful to resolve problems. Thanks and keep on selling.

Who needs bass players... October 22, 2012
Reviewer: Rob from McKinney, TX United States  
Not only does this Bougarabou look good, it sounds great!  The customer service was fantastic and I received my order in a few days and was able to use for an all day event with four different groups. It provided the low end I needed to fill out some complicated musical pieces normally filled in by an electric bass. Mic'd up this drums low end filled a huge space with deffinition and clarity.

Reviewer: Elise Robichaux from Sulphur, LA United States  
This was so easy. I even called to get a change of address done and the young man on the other end of the line was ready to do whatever he could to help me get it where it needed to go. Quick delivery and a+ customer service. I will order here again.
