Excellent service and product
I rehead drums as a side business, and I've found this rope to be relatively inexpensive, but reasonably good quality. It's strong, doesn't stretch and is fairly abrasion resistant. You can even make decent splices by melting two ends together. Not as flexible as more expensive ropes, but not a big issue.
Came in timely manner, was what I expected. Now all I have to do is figure out how to tie it!
I have not used the rope yet but it is visibly better than the rope i purchased locally to add tension (tune) my drum. Thanks for the quick delivery.
I needed rope that worked. X8 had it, in good quality at a decent price. Now, if my back will work just as well....
I am happy with the rope. I am looking for 3 mm djembe rope also so it would be great if you had it as an option.
Great quality, and really fast delivery!
