    The title says it all. My Djembe arrived within days, it is top quality and I am totally satisfied with the service. I will recommend X8 to others. My nephew loves his drum.

    This was my first purchase through x8 drums and I couldn't be happier. I haven't had too much experience with djembes, but I have played around in the past and have been really looking forward to owning my own for a long time. The sound of the drum is perfect and really works for my church's praise team that I bought it for. I was a little worried about it at first because when my package arrived, the box was pretty dented and had a tear on the one side. However, the integrity of the drum was intact and played fine.

    Overall, great experience and great sound.
