Customer Review: "Hi. I just received one of your drums, the Ramadan Pro, and I had to thank you. The sound from this drum is amazing and the craftsmanship is beautiful. I almost feel unworthy to play such an instrument. I know where I will be buying any drums I need in the future. Thanks again." -Dan

I was SO hesitant to purchase 'online' for my first pro djembe, not being able to physically touch/play the drum was SO SCARY for me! I REALLY appreciated & valued the videos! I actually save SEVERAL drums in 'My Favorites', then opened multiple windows, listening to the video sounds to determine which had the bass or high-end sound I was looking for! The drum physically is beautiful w the teal rope, mahogany wood & carving! I LOVE the African symbol "Mframadan" & it's meaning of fortitude and readiness to face life's challenges! The drum is heavy, but manageable! The bag is constructed well too & good for travel! I am Very pleased, & certain we'll be repeat customers & be sending referrals!
This is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! Beautiful quality and craftsmanship! This is a work of art AND a very fine drum! Thank you!
Love the new drum I just bought from you (on-line). Sound is incredible and quality is A+.
This is my first drum and I am glad I got it. It seemed a little bit dull & dusty (maybe from overseas shipping?) out of the box but I rubbed a little shea butter on the head and on the wood and it looks very, very good. My head measured 13". Everything about it is quality... a very thick, tightly-tuned premium goatskin head, perfect ropework, nice wood. Not to mention the sound: it has an impressively musical range of tones and bass. Can hit sweet high notes like a 'xylophone' - booming bass, etc. I showed it to the local Djembe master guru and he tweaked the ropes a little and confirmed "this is a good drum". Also, the service from X8 drums is top notch. They answered all my questions, shipped promptly, gave me advice. If you like the look of this drum, I say: go for it! I'm glad I did.
I purchased the Ramadan Pro African Djembe drum, the service I received was excellent and it was delivered on time as promised. I love my new Djembe drum it sounds awesome, thank you X8 DRUMS !!!
