X8 Drums’s dedication to environmental preservation is evident in their presentation of hand carved Djembe drums. Created from legally certified timber, X8 Drums does it’s part to reduce deforestation.

Jersey City, NJ – August 20, 2009 – As recently as 10 years ago, people were not overly concerned with their global footprint. Recycling was only becoming the norm in large cities, and there was minimal knowledge of our gradual impact on the globe. Citizens today focus on global issues every day. Environmental concerns touch every part of our lives, including our recreational activities. In this light, X8 Drums is showcasing their new, hand carved and environmentally friendly, wooden shell Djembe drums. Manufactured using only legally certified timber, X8 Drums makes a commitment to diminish their product’s global impact.

X8 Djembe Drums are all created by master carvers who focus solely on high quality, beautifully designed drums. Each drum is fashioned from sustainably harvested and Government inspected Mahogany wood. With premium goatskin heads, and low stretch alpine 5mm braided rope, each drum is a work of art both visually as well as acoustically.

The acquisition of legally certified timber is more important to our environment than ever, as the deforestation rate has climbed to over 20,000 square miles per year in the last 10 years. “We’re most proud of the fact that our djembes are made from legally harvested and Government inspected timber,” states X8’s 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. Those that learn to work in harmony with our natural resources will see tremendous opportunity and those that don’t will eventually disappear.”
