Customer Review: "Thank you for your fast service and great products. I just got my Jammer drum today, and am very happy with it. It looked just like the picture and sounded better than I had imagined. I look forward to telling my friends about, as well as coming back for myself. I give your site a solid 10/10. Thank you again." -Jason

The X8 Drums Origins Djembe is handcrafted from a single piece of Mahogany hardwood with a natural carved finish. We recommend this drum for beginner and intermediate players.

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.

20" Tall x 10" Head

    Very happy with this drum

    Posted by Rosenfelder on 26th May 2015

    The drum came in a timely fashion, and in excellent condition. I like the tone and is seems easy to play. Nice workmanship on the drum and bag. One of our advanced drummers tried it and commented "this is a very nice drum". Glad that I purchased it.

    This drum sounds great and the service was fantastic. I accidentally put the wrong billing address (I just moved) and they called me the next day to clarify my information.

    Great deal on a great drum!

    Posted by Anthony Quickel on 29th Jul 2014

    This drum sounded great right out of the box! The package came right on time, and was shipped in a way that made me confident there was no way it could be damaged. The drum looks, and sounds, even better than i had imagined it would. this is my first drum from x8, but i will definitely be buying my next from them as well.
