Customer Review: "I just received my Pro Ramadan drum. It is absolutely beautiful. It's got great bass notes and fantastic high notes. The rim shot notes are amazing. i ordered it on Saturday and have it for my drumming circle tonight (Tuesday). I didn't expect to have it that fast. They should put you guys in charge of General Motors, heck, Obama should put you in charge of the whole economy. That would solve that. Thanks for a great drum. Will pass your name on to my drumming buds and will certainly buy again." - Mark L. from Millerton, NY

    Ramadan Pro

    I really can't say enough to express how much I love this djembe. This drum is beautifully crafted. I am amazed at the sound. X8 customer service provided an above par shopping experience to say the least. I am very happy with my purchase and I'm already looking at drums for both of my kids to play now. Namaste

    My drum looks exactly like the picture online! It is just what I wanted & the price was right. Had to send to a friend's house as we were on vacation & X8 called to verify that there was no fraud. Thanks! I love it!
