    This is my first drum so I don't have much to compare it to but I LOVE everything about it. Sounds amazing, easy to change the sound depending on what techniques I'm using to connect with the drum, not too heavy yet very solid. I ended up painting my own henna design on top of it to take away the commercial look and give it more of a bohemian look. The drum is amazing and totally worth every penny!

    Great drum!

    I sent this drum to my brother, and he was thrilled! Said it had great sound and was a beautiful instrument. My only complaint was I couldn't tell it was out of stock when I ordered it, so it took 10 days to ship! Look carefully when you buy, but the drum itself is great.

    As a novice drummer, I searched a long time to find this perfect djembe. I love the rich sounds, the beautiful mahagony, sturdy construction, and affordable price.
