Working closely with our overseas partners, we are importing the finest selection of beautifully handcrafted African djembe drums and accessories. The selection of djembes are diverse enough to appease beginners through professionals and everyone in between. With gorgeous designs and professional build quality, the X8 djembe collection of African drums are truly handmade works of art created by master carvers using only top-tier materials including: sustainably harvested and Government inspected Mahogany wood, premium goatskin heads, and low stretch alpine 5mm braided rope.
"We're most proud of the fact that our djembes are made from legally harvested and Government inspected timber," remarked co-founder Mark Stancato. "We spent a lot of time searching for the right overseas partners that met are stringent requirements of using only legally harvested, certified timber and could prove a Government certification process," added Stancato. "It's extremely important that today's up and coming companies strive to be as eco-friendly as possible.
The wonderful instrument is hand made from bamboo and comes in a standard 47" length. Whenever you perform with the Djembe or African drum, this Didgeridoo is a great addition to the ensemble.
Because each didgeridoo is hand painted, no two will be the same.
History of the Didgeridoo
The didgeridoo is a wind instrument found among the Aborigine clans of northern Australia. Didgeridoos can be made from a variety of materials from Teak or Eucalyptus wood to Bamboo stalks or PVC piping. The mouthpiece is usually made of beeswax.
Bamboo didgeridoos around 48-51" offer the great tones for beginners. In particular, artists that who specialize in meditation soundtracks will incorporate a bamboo didge. The bamboo material holds a tone for a longer period of time than didgeridoos made of other materials.
