Good product, good price, nice set up October 22, 2012
Reviewer: Scott from Coon Rapids, MN United States  
I ordered the drum as a Christmas present and as a drummer myself I checked it out when it arrived and I feel I received good value. It's a nice drum with good sound and all-around quality for the price. I'm happy and I know the person receiving will be also.

Ruby Pro African Djembe August 23, 2012
Reviewer: Pat Hayden from Louisville, KY United States  
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.
