Really beautiful with a great sound

The drum is exactly as described by the rep I spoke with, maybe even better. It's really beautiful and has a great sound. Now I just have to learn to play it. The price is so reasonable for something of this quality.

I teach West African hand drumming classes. My students and I really enjoy the quality of the slaps, tones, and bass of this drum. Not only does it sound great, it looks great! It is definitely worth every penny! I also appreciate the wonderful customer service I've received from X8 Drums and look forward to doing more business with them. Thank you!

Everything I had in dealing with X8 drums was amazing. Great customer service, and even better the drum I got was amazing. Knowledgeable staff when I called to ask a question, and shipping was very quick. I would (and already have) recommend this to everyone. And once again of course, the drum sounds AMAZING. Could not ask for anything better.

This drum is just what I hoped it would be - nice deep tones in the center and higher pitched tones on the edges. Thanks to the person who patiently answered all my questions and guided me in making my decision to choose the correct drum.
Best drum ever
