    This is a fantastic Djembe -- tone, craftsmanship, wood. The entire purchasing process was excellent from start to Shipping. The Djembe was packaged extremely well to survive the hazards of shipping.
    I am just so pleased with this djembe and expect it to be a musical companion for life.
    Working with AJ and his informative emails made the process very smooth. I have the Djembe I hoped to find when I first started my search.
