    Awesome product/customer service

    I emailed customer service after an impulse buy, and Matt sent me the link for this beautiful drum. It's my husband's first Djembe, and he LOVES it. The sound is amazing, and the carving on the body is beautiful.

    Beyond expectations!

    So many choices! X8 made it easy with a great website. I was able to listen to each Dijembe to hear it's sound. Received the shipment quickly and it arrived in great condition. My son was impressed with the quality and great sound. Was very pleased with the medium sized Djembe. Had looked at two other websites. Would def recommend X8 to anyone looking for a Djembe.
