Customer Review: "This drum is serious. I laid in just a little and nobody could hear anything but me... whoops!" - Brotha Sean, New York City

"The Stallion arrived yesterday and sounds amazing. Wish your shop was closer so I could come by. I'll definitely recommend your shop and wouldn't think of buying a hand drum from anyone else. I'm a customer and fan for life. -Steve (Fresno CA)

    Posted by Marty on 9th Dec 2014

    ...and love it! I am a drum kit drummer who decided to try out some hand drums. Boy am I glad I did! I am having a blast. This djembe sounds great. The quality and workmanship seems very good to my eye. Thanks X8 for turning me on. Next up is a frame drum.

    Singing Drum!

    Posted by Christian Calvachi on 14th Aug 2014

    What an amazing sound! I'm an international buyer, and this drum surpassed my expectations! I'm so pleased with the pitchs of the slaps, and the depth of bass, never thought it would be lightweight as it is, without compromising the sound. Excellent instrument!

    Stallion Pro

    Posted by Rose on 11th Aug 2014

    I ordered the stallion pro. I received a call from x8 that the drum was on a ship and had to go through customs so it would be a month before I received it. They asked if I wanted to wait or order another drum. I'm so glad I waited. The sound is incredible! It's exactly what I expected.

    Stallion 12" djembe

    Posted by David Johnston on 16th Jul 2014

    Very impressive drum. A very fast rhythm played on this drum for 30 minutes and you feel like you're only getting warmed up. Definitely a professional quality drum. I recommend this drum for anyone who wants to play and is looking for a quality drum at a reasonable price. Thank you 8x for having this drum available.
