This striking X8 Kente Cloth Key-Tuned Royal Djembe features a fiberglass shell with a synthetic drumhead, which some players prefer for the distinct tone it produces, which is typically pitched higher than a traditional goatskin head. This drum includes a wrench for the bolt-tuning system, making it a breeze to keep this drum sounding exactly how you want.

The pattern on the fiberglass shell is modeled after "Kente" cloth, notable in Africa because it is frequently worn by royalty. Each type of royal Kente cloth has its own design with a special meaning. The dark color in this drum's pattern is meant to stand for intensified spiritual energy.
