Customer Review: "I just purchased the Grand Stallion Djembe; there are no words to describe how big or how excited I am. I knew it would be big but WOW! The craftsmanship is flawless for a drum that size and as far as the slaps go, there no question the 15.5" playing surface of the Grand Stallion blows my 12" djembe out of the water." -Michael
