Doumbeks

Doumbeks are custom hand made with stoneware clay and goat skin heads. I have made these drums for twenty years, and as a hand drum instructor, I demand the best sound, feel, and look from them! The elegant venturi shape is optimal for this type drum giving good volume, bass, and tonal range. The goat skin head is securely glued on, the lip shape allowing for plenty of glued surface and a nice rounded edge easy on your fingers. the decorative cloth edge can be carefully peeled off and replaced with your favorite patterned cloth. I throw these very light, so don't expect a clunker!



This middle Eastern belly dance style drum includes a clay strap lug mounted at the balance point, so just add a cloth shoulder strap and these are easy to carry and play. Ceramic drum can break, so I highly recommend you store them on a wall hook, away from sunlight and moisture. The cloth strip is mainly decorative. but also adds to make a non slip surface to rest your hand.



Our doumbeks sell quickly, but these are all in stock today. I always have 5-20 doumbek shells waiting to be headed, so if you are looking for a custom one, give me a call and I may be able to put together one with just the style and skin you like !
