Stoneware Doumbek Hand Drum Darbuka Goat Skin Head


Hand thrown stoneware medium size doumbek with a leaf pattern of incised in turquoise slip. The glaze is my matte brown that picks up all the subtleties of the form. This has a flawless pink blushed goat skin to compliment the drum.

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. This drum is 9 inches high by 7 inches at the head, a perfect size for traveling with, but still with a large bass and very crisp top end tones.
