Customer Review: "Just received my new 14" Ruby Pro and it is the most incredible drum I have ever played. Cannot believe how crisp the tones and slaps are as well as a great bass. The drum itself is so beautiful and the workmanship impeccable." -Michael

"I ordered my drum on Thursday, March 12 and was so excited when it arrived March 13, WOW what deliver service. The phone service I received while ordering was fantastic. The drum - Ruby Diamond Pro is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and the sound is terrific. I went to a drum circle Friday night and everyone loved it and of course asked where I got it. Thanks again from the great service and the beautiful drum. When I order another it will definitely be from X8." -Kathy

    The Djembe is Beautiful and very well made. The tones on this drum are awesome, crisp high tones and thundering low tones. I would recommend this drum to any serious Djembe player.

  5. WOW!

    I facilitate drum circles and own over 60 djembes, from inexpensive fleet drums to more exotic African hand-made works of art. I bought the larger Ruby, and, WOW! Right out of the box, the sounds out of this drum rival anything I have ever played! Congrats, X8.
