DARBUKA

Comments about Meinl Aluminum Hand-Hammered Darbuka:

I read that the Darbuka is a good drum to play with classical and acoustic guitar, so it will be good to play with my guitar friends and it works well in the drum circle too. I especially like that it is so light weight to carry and to hold while playing. It fits well in a duffle bag, wrapped in a soft cloth to protect it.
I love my drum! It is very light weight, but has a big sound. I did not want a heavy drum and this is perfect. The price is also very reasonable. I am a guitarist who is just getting into drumming. I take this drum to a drum circle and enjoy playing it very much.

      Really happy I bought this drum. I was looking for something portable to bring to drum circles. Love the sound I'm getting from it as well.

        Comments about Meinl Aluminum Hand-Hammered Darbuka:

        I'll start out by saying I am by no means a Darbuka player. I am a latin percussionist who has dabbled into the Middle Eastern realm for fun. For an amateur this is great. I love how lightweight this instrument is due to the aluminum construction and how the shell will never rust. The stock heads actually sounds good to me as well. I have the 8" version and am able to pull some decent bass tones as well as highs out of this little drum. These are not made in the Meinl's Thailand factory, rather they are imported from Turkey. Meinl has created an exceptional instrument for a great price.
