This drum is now available through our preferred partners, Guitar Center & Musician's Friend.



X8 DRUMS is extremely excited to offer four new models of Master Series djembes. Custom designs that you won't find anywhere else in the United States. 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.

The X8 Drums One Love Master Series Djembe features decorative multi color rope wrapped around the bowl of the drum. A rubber tire base to keep your drum stable (and protect floors) and a premium grade, thick goatskin drum head. For a limited time, this drum ships with a FREE gig bag.

The Master Series 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 that is all legally harvested and certified to be legal timber.

Also, due to the specialized shell shape only 30% of the approved wood that is sorted for our Master Series line meets the size, shape, and quality criteria for a Master Series. All shells have to be both hand carved and lathed. This is expensive and takes a long time. Every Master Series djembe is carved extra thick for incredible tones, and unsurpassed range.

Take special note of the neck ring on each Master Series djembe. Every drum is secured with a forged steel neck ring that is specifically fitted and built for each model. All Master Series 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 Master Series it stays locked and tight when performing. The Master Series has 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.


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.

    Djembe One Love Series drums - medium 12 inch drum head and 24 inch mahogany shell.

    I give this company the highest mark I can due to (1) their outstanding customer service and (2) their outstanding One Love series medium djembe drum I ordered. On the service part, I had a couple of questions that my helper, Kristen from the San Marcos store helped me with. She was fast, responsive, thorough, and very knowledgeable. At one point I thought I had ordered the model I wanted, only to find out from Kristen it did not go thru, and this was after 8 pm when she contacted me. So I logged back on and this time I did not leave anything out. When I finished, she double checked that this time I did it correctly. Because she caught my mistake right away and contacted me right away, my order still got in that day, so it was shipped the next day. After it did ship, Kristen sent me an update on that, and it came to be the day after that, so just 2 days shipping.

    My djembe drums came very well packaged and the drums themselves sounded extraordinary. I have played my bongos for a while now, but never a djembe, and they have such a beautiful sound vibration for all 3 of the stroke patterns, I just loved them right out of the box. I’ve spent a lot of time going over sone DVDs I ordered on how to play these drums, and I am so glad I made this purchase on this djembe set and also from this dealer.
