    Everything I wanted December 9, 2013
    Reviewer: Bruce from Billings, MT United States  
    I purchases a 14" scratch and dent.  The small hole in the head was easily repaired and doesn't seem to effect the sound at all.  It also came with a very nice replacement head for when this one eventually splits.

    My only problem is the wife says I can't play it once the kids are in bed.  Something about leaping up and dancing around....

    Wow May 3, 2012
    Reviewer: Kevin Harrington  
    It was tuned up and ready to play right when I took it out of the bag. I might tighten it a little more, but this drum packs a punch. It can get a nice slap in there, and the bass is deep. Thank you very much

    The Ramadan Pro 13" Djembe is Phenomenal May 16, 2011
    Reviewer: Scotty from North Shore of Boston  
    I had ordered a Matahari 13" and the staff at X8 stated that it wasn't in stock.  They suggested a Ramadan as a swap (same price).  It arrived two days later.  This drums is awesome!  Warm tones, vibrant slap, punchy bass.  Very well put together.  I am totally groovin on this drum.  Thanks X8 for your help and your products.  Keep up the good work!!!!!
