Great Base! January 23, 2013
Reviewer: Alain McLaughlin from Alameda, CA United States  
Nice looking, great base. Still tuning for those high notes though. Not a natural skin but synthetic. Very light weight. Good second drum for guests and bringing to my drum class.

Great Djembe July 5, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Chesapeake, VA United States  
Highly recommend this djembe.

Our djembe arrived in great condition and ready to play.  We enjoy the sound of goat skin over synthetic.  Can tell the difference in climates from Texas (dry) to Virginia (humid) in the few days since our djembe arrived.

Thanks X8 for great response and service!
