      My son has taken an interest in different types of drums. He is 13. He researched extensively and decided on this drum. He loves the sound! Also, it is beautiful.

        Comments about Meinl Hand Engraved Aluminum Doumbek:

        I'm in a belly dance troupe that is starting a drum circle. We're being trained by an experienced drummer, and after looking at dozens of different drums online, he recommended this one. I was not disappointed, it's a beautiful drum and the sound is clear. I especially like how light it is due to it being made of aluminum, easy to transport.

          Great sound for an awesome price. The aluminum material resonates well on this 8.5" darbuka. The finish is pretty well made. The synthetic head produces crisp, high sounds on the edge and deep sounds on the center.
