How to Play Djembe and Care of Djembe
To play the Djembe sit on the edge of a chair. Cross your ankles and tuck them slightly under you. Hold the Djembe between your knees or thighs so that the bottom of the drum rests behind your heels. Djembe players will find a wide range of sounds can be produced from this instrument.
The best treatment for a skin head is use. The more a drum is played the better for the head. The natural oils from your skin will help to keep the head in condition. If you find the sound going a little dull you can re-tune the head using the cords.

Quality is amazing. Sound is extraordinary! Excellent drum. Will buy again from X8. Very happy customer :-)
This is a very good drum for the needs I will be meeting using it. It arrived in a timely manner and looks great.
My drum arrived quickly and in great condition. Sounds great and looks fantastic.
While shipping to Alaska can be a bear (pun intended!) X8 DID get our djembe to us in time for Christmas and my daughter was ecstatic! As it was her only gift request, there was a lot riding on something ordered, completely unseen, online. It arrived in good condition and sounding wonderful. When my daughter showed it off to our choir director, a PhD in percussion studies, she confirmed the quality of craftsmanship. Thank you for making Christmas special!
When I got it for my birthday, it was perfect! I use this djembe for everything I practice in my world music class.
My drum arrived today and I love it! It's aesthetically beautiful to look at and has a great sound. It is a perfect size for me. Thanks to x8 for excellent customer service.
I received this drum by default when the drum I ordered was found to be damaged before it was shipped to me, thankfully. I love this drum! It is the perfect size, has an amazing sound to it and is beautiful to boot!! Thanx, Art for turning what could have become 'a situation' into a happy customer experience!!!
This is a wonderful drum.The voice is that of a much larger drum with the ease of a smaller size.It will join the collection for my drumming circle... love the tone and size..just right for the smaller/shorter drummers in the Drummin Sistahs.
I was quite impressed with this drum. Being my first Djembe, i had looked at many reviews before making my decision. X8 drums gave me enough information on their site to make what i consider to be an excellent choice for my first drum. Right out of the box it looks great and sounds very good. I have no doubt it will sound even better as my skill level improves.
