X8 Red Black Backpacker Djembe
The Red and Black Djembe features a two tone contrast of red and black stripes offering a bit of attitude. Master carvers have paid special attention to the detailing of this drum to provide a unique rough texture. Authentic goatskin heads are secured with low-stretch Alpine Nylon HTB 5mm rope runners. We recommend this drum for beginner to 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. 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.
15-16" x 8-9" Head (Backpacker), 16 sets of rope runners

This drum is of the utmost quality I've seen in a drum in a while!! And the fact that it was at such a great price was even better!! It got here surprisingly fat with even the free shipping. I was excited to say the least when it arrived.
Love the website and the video's posted to see how each drum works. Our drum was delivered quickly and the quality is excellent. Thank you for making our experience a pleasant one!
I ordered 3 of these drums and the workmanship is wonderful. The people who received these as gifts love them and are getting acquainted with them thanks to the free lesson. Thank you for your assistance.I would definitely order again from x8 and so would these people.
