    Don't be Fooled by the Price

    These Djuns Djuns are wonderful. The quality of the mahogany shells and skins are fantastic!

    I've been wanting a set for years and have done extensive research. I'm de-lighted with my choice and more than pleasantly surprised by the personable service and lightening fast shipping.
