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

Customer Review: "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

    I bought this as a gift for Father's Day for my husband. He has been wanting one for a while now. I thought that it was beautifully made. My husband loved the sound of it. He is excited about taking it on vacation with us this summer as we will have a lot of musical people in our family. I would definitely recommend this product and will return to this site for any accessories.
