    First Pro Djembe

    Posted by Terri Sluss-Cole on 30th Jul 2014

    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!

    Fantastic Drum, Great Customer Service!

    Posted by Brett on 14th Jul 2014

    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.
