Compare the X8 Drums Fiberglass Djembe Models Compare the new Fiberglass Djembe Models from X8 Drums. Both djembes are made of a fiberglass drum shell that is lightweight, weatherproof and has great resonance. When comparing the models, you can choose between the traditional Rope Tuned version with a goatskin drumhead or the more modern Mechanically Tuned version with our new professional synthetic drum head. This video explains the sonic differences in detail with performance comparisons. Demonstration by Dion Rivers.

Is it just me or does the fiberglass with synthetic head lack the obnoxious overtones Remo acousticon shell djembes typically have?
