JUST ARRIVED!!!!

The name says it all! This hand crafted beauty has a traditional look and feel that represents the best of the djembe drum. The X8 Classic pays homage to the roots of this historical instrument by keeping the finish organic and the carving modest. One look and you will know why the X8 Classic is destined to be…well a "classic."

The Classic Pro djembes are hand made, custom carved professional grade instruments prepared with the finest materials. Each drum goes through a rigorous inspection of quality control using hand selected #1 quality mahogany hardwood. Only the best! Wood that is all legally harvested and certified to be legal timber, which is environmentally friendly.

Also, due to the specialized shell shape only 30% of the approved wood that is sorted for our Professional line meets the size, shape, and quality criteria for an Classic Pro. All shells have to be both hand carved and lathed. This is expensive and takes a long time. Every Classic Pro djembe is carved extra thick for incredible tones, and unsurpassed range.

Take special note of the neck ring on each Classic Pro djembe. Every drum is secured with a forged steel neck ring that is specifically fitted and built for each model. All Classic Pro shells are hand carved with a built in groove that is custom fitted to lock the ring system into place. This tedious process of welding a custom steel neck ring leads to a highly secured tuning system. When you tune up your new Classic Pro it stays locked and tight when performing.

Sizes Available:

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.
