X8 DRUMS is extremely excited to offer three new models of Elite Pro Djembes. Custom designs that you won't find anywhere else in the states. You can only get them here!! This latest batch of djembes will knock you out with their aesthetic beauty and superior sound quality. We have a limited number of each model. There are true collectors items in this batch.
The Elite Pro Djembes are hand made, custom carved professional grade instruments prepared with the finest materials. Each drum goes through a rigorous inspection of quality control using hand selected #1 quality mahogany hardwood. Only the best! Wood that is all legally harvested and certified to be legal timber, which is environmentally friendly. Go green!!
Also, due to the specialized shell shape only 30% of the approved wood that is sorted for our Professional line meets the size, shape, and quality criteria for an Elite Pro. All shells have to be both hand carved and lathed. This is expensive and takes a long time. Every Elite Pro djembe is carved extra thick for incredible tones, and unsurpassed range.
Take special note of the neck ring on each Elite Pro Djembe. Every drum is secured with a forged steel neck ring that is specifically fitted and built for each model. All Elite Pro shells are hand carved with a built in groove that is custom fitted to lock the ring system into place. This tedious process of welding a custom steel neck ring leads to a highly secured tuning system. When you tune up your new Elite Pro it stays locked and tight when performing. The Elite Pro’s have it all: craftsmanship, beauty, and that juicy tone you’ve been after!!
We take great pride that our djembe drums are environmentally friendly. Each drum is made from legally harvested/Government inspected and certified Mahogany. The fact that we import these drums directly means that you get 'factory direct' prices and the finest selection of handcrafted djembe drums.
Please note that each drum is hand-carved, by master carvers, and sizes will tend to slightly fluctuate. No two drums are exactly alike which makes each one a unique work of art.

I was suspect after reading differing opinions online pertaining to djembes and wood choice; however, I decided to go with this drum and the choice Mahogany - I am not disappointed. It sounded excellent right out of the box, and far exceeds the sound quality of many djembes I played at guitar center, including an Overseas Connection made of Lenke wood. It looks superb, and sounds three times its price (excellent balanced, deep bass and bright slaps). You will not be disappointed with this drum or this company. Thank you x8 drums!

Looks great (flatter finish than the picture), sounds better. The 12" was a great choice: full body, yet manageable in size. Super happy.
