My. son is taking an African drumming class right now and I was pleasantly surprised with the sturdy construction and soothing sound of this Djembe that arrived so quickly and right on time for his 9th birthday. He said it's even better than the ones in his class.

I shopped around for a Djembe and was very satisfied with the information that X8 provided on their website, from product information to informative videos. So when X8 also had the best price for the drum I chose, the buying decision was easy!
