X8 Drums hosts community drum circles in the Texas area.

Much like the vast selection of drums, percussion instruments, and Pro Audio we offer, X8 Drums is an eclectic group of customer service oriented individuals working in a team approach to give you the best shopping experience each and every time you do business with us. We work hard to earn your trust and your loyalty. Once you become an X8 Drums customer, you become an X8 Family member. We will always welcome you back home!!

Feeding from the local flavor of Austin, TX, home of SXSW and the best music scene in the country, X8 Drums is dedicated to bringing quality products to our customers. From the ease of online ordering to the customer experience, our job is to help you make music, and we take that commitment very seriously. We speak drum. Literally. Dum-tak-slap. We test all of our products before adding them to the website, in order to help provide unsurpassed knowledge of our products and the best customer service possible.

When we say we walk to the beat of our own drum, we mean it. We don't just sell djembes and percussion instruments; we sell a life-long love of music and rhythm, and all the gooey deliciousness, hand-numbing, life-enhancing, feel-good richness and delight of drumming.

About the X8 Logo

X8 Drums Hand Logo MeaningOur logo tells all... The "X" (as in the way the brain is wired) and "8" (Infinity symbol) are deeply compelling and significant symbols that summarize the Cosmic Nature and Purpose of Drums and how they can harmonize and elevate the human nervous system.
Many thanks to Baba Issa for the interpretation. 

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the drums!
